SKY RACING Class 2 Handicap Tips (Race 3)
Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Degas
After failing to run out the mile last start, Degas can control the race and return to the winners circle from barrier one.
A winner of two from eight career starts, the Chris Munce-trained gelding has failed to miss the quinella in both runs over 1400m, thrashing his opposition at the Gold Coast last preparation before being nailed on the line at the Sunshine Coast.
Drawn beautifully in gate one, the four-year-old by Show a Heart dropped out badly at Doomben over the mile last start and stepping back to 1350m, will be rock hard fit and hard to catch.
HELLBENT FIRST CROP AT MAGIC MILLIONS Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)
Doomben Favourite - Race 4 No. 4 Auron
Following a terrific debut performance, Auron returns as a three-year-old off some impressive trials leading into his second preparation.
Chasing home Tycoon Evie at Doomben on debut, the Tony Gollan-trained colt by Savabeel was very impressive finishing second in a high rating maiden, with the race rating the fastest of three 1200m races on the day.
Drawn well in barrier five, Auron gains the services of Ryan Maloney who has developed an outstanding partnership with Tony Gollan, and con continue the stables hot form first-up.

Doomben Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Kingston's Here
Following an outstanding maiden victory a fortnight ago at Eagle Farm, Kingston’s Here can make it consecutive victories from barrier two at Doomben.
Put away immediately after placing on debut, the three-year-old gelding trained by Steven O’Dea and Mathew Hoysted was extremely impressive first-up at Eagle Farm, overcoming a wide draw to chase down Gaelic Puzzle.
Running the 1000m in 57.34s and last 600m in 33.48s, the win rated better than the Class 3 on the same day, and drawn perfectly in barrier two, looks perfectly placed to record consecutive victories.

Doomben Value Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Heritage Sash
Boasting three seconds and a third at Doomben, Heritage Sash can break his close run of outs at third-up at Doomben on Wednesday.
After landing in the lead last start, the Toby & Trent Edmonds-trained I Am Invincible gelding is a strong, front running type who is at his best over 1200m.
Expect Justin Huxtable to roll along in front third-up and boasting an extremely consistent record over the track and distance, Heritage Sash will prove very hard to catch.
