Doomben Tips for October 2


SKY RACING BENCHMARK 72 Handicap Tips (Race 3)


Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Contemptuous

The five-year-old was a blackbooker two starts ago when beaten by Tramonto, but did the job well last start when streaking away (although green) at Eagle Farm last start.

I am keen to see Contemptous out to 1200m now, and he looks well placed here with the 3kg claim bringing him down to 57kg which is essentially one of the bottom weights in this field.

He has the scope to improve going into this race, and while his race manners are still not 100%, it means he can only get better.

MOUNT FRANKLIN Class 3 Plate Tips (Race 5)


Doomben Value Bet - Race 5 No. 6 First Son

When Kubrick is favourite, you know the race is wide open which means we go value hunting.

Have landed on First Son who is unbeaten in two starts, and although these were in weaker races, winning form is good form.

The obvious question is whether he is going to handle what we expect to be a wet surface with no race experience, but one would think the stable will scratch if they don't think he will go in it.

MOUNT FRANKLIN Class 3 Plate Tips (Race 7)


Doomben Best Bet - Race 7 No. 15 Ruuca

He was a blackbooker last start after attacking the line well at the Gold Coast in what was the faster of the two 1100m races on the day.

The market has found Ruuca early as well, opening at $7 and into $4.80, so there is confidence there which is always a positive sign for horse you had planned to follow out of their last run.

Now third-up into his prep, with just 54.5kg on his back, this five-year-old looks superbly placed to storm over the top of them at his peak.
