Doomben Tips December 19

GALLOPERS SPORTS CLUB Class 6 Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Mount Tabora

After trialling extremely well on the Gold Coast after joining the Toby & Trent Edmonds stable, Mount Tabora was fantastic in his first run in Queensland and can breakthrough on Saturday.

Failing to live up to expectations in Melbourne when trained by Lindsey Park, the European import looks to have thrived since arriving in Queensland, winning a trial over 1000m before smashing the line first-up.

Despite settling midfield, the five-year-old gelding by Scat Daddy wasn't provided much room to wind up down the straight, being held up at the turn before powering late.

A winner in his only attempt on a heavy track, 1350m is arguably Mount Tabora's best trip and looks hard to beat from barrier four with Andrew Mallyon staying aboard.

SKY RACING OPEN Quality Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Doomben Value Bet - Race 4 No. 9 Advance Warning

After an ordinary first-up performance, Advance Warning was tremendous last start charging home over the mile and looks primed to return to the winners circle third-up.

A five-year-old by Lucas Cranach, the Tony Gollan trained gelding settled last from barrier ten at Doomben last start at the mile and arguably should have won the race, never seeing daylight until the final stages where he charged home into third.

Already boasting two wins and a third from five wet track starts, Georgina Cartwright stays Advance Warning and although he certainly isn't the most talented horse in the race, he comes up against horses at the top of the market who are either unproven over the distance or unproven on wet ground.

Drawn to land in a closer position from barrier six, Advance Warning gets his opportunity to out stay his opposition third-up over 2020m in heavy conditions.

BRC MEMBERSHIP PLUS Class 3 Plate Tips (Race 5)

Doomben Each-Way Bet - Race 5 No. 8 Love Express

Rock hard fit, third-up from a spell and finding a heavy track for the first time since placing in the Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas, Love Express looks to get all the favours on Saturday from a good draw.

A blackbooker following his strong return over 1200m at the Sunshine Coast first-up, the Gary Duncan trained four-year-old gelding was brave last start over 1300m at the Sunshine Coast, finishing third behind Better Than Groovy and Lady Brahmos.

A placegetter in both heavy runs to date, the son of Love Conquers All was outstanding when finishing third in the Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas during the winter carnival, motoring through the conditions to finish less than a length off Wapiti that day.

Drawn beautifully in barrier four, Love Express gains the services of in form jockey Brad Stewart and looks hard to beat at each-way odds.

TAB VENUE MODE C,G&E BENCHMARK 75 Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Doomben Best Bet - Race 6 No. 13 La Jument

The wetter the Doomben track becomes the better for La Jument, with the Shaun Dwyer gelding a deadset swimmer.

A lightly raced son of Fastnet Rock who only made his debut in February as a six-year-old, he is unbeaten in wet conditions having won twice in Soft 7 and once on a Heavy 8 track.

Boasting form around Catesby and Rock Beat after a terrific last start at Toowoomba on Weetwood day, La Juent enters Saturday first-up off an 84 day spell where from barrier three Brad Stewart will be able to settle in a beautiful position behind the speed.

With plenty of speed drawn out wide and heavy conditions to suit, lightly raced seven-year-old gelding La Jument will have everything to suit on Saturday and looks very hard to beat as the best bet of the day.


Doomben Feature Tip - Race 8 No. 9 Away Game

Arguably the country's benchmark two-year-old last season, if Away Game has made any slight improvement as a three-year-old she will be very hard to beat on Saturday.

Although there is no doubt local star Isotope will be the horse to beat from a good draw, the Tony Gollan trained filly is stepping onto a heavy track for the first time so I am keen to take her on at such short odds.

Ciaron Maher and David Eustace trained Away Game produced one of the most incredible two-year-old seasons to date, with the daughter of Snitzel winning four of eight starts, racing in four different states and winning just shy of $3 million.

Drawn barrier ten, Away Game gains the services of Glen Boss who rode her in her trial at Rosehill, and one of the few horses who has been proven on heavy ground, can take a sit handy to the speed and prove very hard to beat.

Doomben Feature Tip - Race 9 No. 2 Niccanova

After being tested in Sydney during the spring carnival, the Group One placed Niccanova can bounce back to form on Saturday as he gets conditions to suit.

Given a 42 day freshen following his Sydney preparation, the Steve Tregea trained seven-year-old boasts an outstanding record on wet tracks, with five wins and two seconds from nine starts.

Boasting five wins and four placings from 15 starts at Doomben, the wide draw is the only slight cross against his name but stepping back from the mile, the son of Nicconi is a proven weight carrier and will be charging home late.

Drawn barrier twelve, Brad Stewart will be forced to go back to near last, however, as a mudlark on a deteriorating Doomben track, Niccanova looks the class runner in the race.
