Doomben Tips for August 18

BRC MEMBERSHIP OPEN Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Doomben Best Bet - Race 2 No. 5 Shijin

Carrying the same weight as last start, there is no reason why the mare cannot go back-to-back in the small field.

Shijin will likely take the sit behind stablemate Parko who is a bold front-running type, and with just 51kg, taking the sit and saving for a dash home could be the winning move.

She gets barrier one so it should be a very cruzy ride from Jaden Lloyd, and one that should tick off another win from his apprenticeship.

SKY RACING BENCHMARK 65 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Highland Son

This gelding was good last start when second-up at the Sunshine Coast when we’ll supported in the market.

He was slow away and caught wide, but really stuck to his task and kept coming at the line to only get beaten a half length.

Highland Son is always around the mark with two wins and five placings, but third-up now and with 55.5kg on his back, he gets his chance to claim a third career win today.

XXXX DRY Class 5 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Doomben Value Bet - Race 7 No. 1 Great Keppell

On an each-way basis, this gelding looks in his right race with a very good first-up record of four placings from five goes.

Great Keppell loves the six furlongs with a win and two placings from four starts, while he handles all surfaces, winning all five career races on good ground, yet still has not missed a placing on wet ground.

Maybe now into his sixth prep he could be looking for a touch further, but I am confident in what the horse has shown first-up previously and his consitency to date.
