CASCADE QTIS 3-Y-O Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)
Doomben Value Bet - Race 4 No. 13 Spressi
Stepping out on debut off a nice trial, this looks like a professional three-year-old and she is set to gain all the favours from a kind draw in three.
After finishing fourth in a trial behind Aviemore in March last year, the Barry Lockwood-trained filly was sent to the paddock and wasn’t seen again until this preparation.
Stepping out over 1000m at Doomben, she jumped and led the trial from start to finish, holding off her opposition who were scrubbed up on her outside.
Drawn to land either in the lead or just behind from barrier three, Sean Cormack takes the ride aboard Spressi who looks well placed to make her debut a winning one.

Doomben Best Bet - Race 7 No. 11 Goldschlager
After receiving no luck when stepping up in grade last start, Goldschlager looks perfectly placed to return to the winners circle at Doomben.
Following a great first preparation which included finishing on the heels of Smart ‘N’ Sexy, the Chris-Munce trained filly by Deep Field beat up on her opposition at Ipswich before stepping up in grade last start.
Settling in the second half of the field, she failed to find any clear running room down the home straight as Mathew McGillivray held a stranglehold of her, charging on the heels of her opposition.
Drawn to land off the rails from barrier nine, Justin Huxtable takes the ride on this son of Deep Field who is our best bet on this Doomben meeting.

Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Roman Aureus
Unbeaten over the track and trip, Roman Aureus looks primed to breakthrough this preparation third-up off a great run last start.
Forced wide around the turn at Eagle Farm, the Brian Wakefield-trained gelding was extremely brave battling home into second, splitting Stampe and Stuttering.
After winning four of six races last preparation, the son of Red Element thrived at Doomben winning three from three over this track and trip.
Drawn to land in the perfect spot from barrier one, he gains the services of Justin Huxtable and looks hard to beat third-up.

Doomben Each-Way Bet - Race 9 No. 13 Highland Son
After running on a heavy tracl last start, the Stuart Kendrick-trained Highland Son looks over the odds from a good draw in the last.
In a strong return first-up, he chased home Garibaldi and Platinum Euros at the Sunshine Coast, finishing three-lengths off the pair who have both won impressively since.
Forgiving his last effort on a testing surface at the Sunshine Coast, as before that he was never far away which included multiple attempts at Saturday grade.
Drawn to enjoy a gun run in transit, Jake Bayliss takes the ride on Thursday and from barrier five, represents great value in the last race of the meeting.
