Doomben Tips May 13

Race 1 - 11:48AM Breakfast With The Stars 6 June QTIS Class 6 Tips (1200m)

Selections: 11,1,5,7.

Like many of the races on this card, the opener has different form lines to pick through. 11. SELF INDULGENT can improve further from that second up win, over this same course, and will just need another heady ride from apprentice Gejay Graham from the wide gate. 

1. Astero won well in heavy going in a BM88 and measured up with a close up third in this same class here the start prior.

5. Argyle Lane was a beaten odds on favourite first up, though there were excuses. He raced wide and rearward and will benefit from that run.

7. Arentee can mix it with these on his day, but he struggled frist-up last prep and has drawn out.

Race 2 - 12:23PM Stradbroke Calcutta 8 June 3YO Plate Tips (1350m)

Selections: 11,2,3,6.

The wide draws of late for 11. EKATERINA have seen her giving her rivals a big start, so the rail alley this time should see her settle midfield on the fence. She got a big finish, so will just need some luck in the straight to get over the top of them. 

2. Atmosphere is back in grade from the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas, where the winner belted them. He was second in listed company the run prior. 

3. Count Da Beans ran some good placing last prep, but hasn’t quite hit his straps in his two runs this campaign. Will improve further and isn’t without a chance.

6. Chairman loomed as the winner last start and was run down by Spirit Queen. Won the start prior and should be thereabouts again.

Race 3 - 12:58PM The Star Benchmark 80 Handicap Tips (1350m)

Selections: 14,2,12,3.

14. NATIONAL CHOICE might be slipping under the radar, as he put together a couple of nice wins and backed that up with a solid third in BM85 grade. Back to a NM80 suits, with the ex-Victorian yet to finish out of the money in four runs for Rob Heathcote.

2. Meritable ran in Group 3's last year, so can measure up here on class. There’s a few more questions than answers on him producing a win first-up. 

13. Safework finished off well last start and will be fitter third-up. Doesn’t win out of turn, however.

3. Don’t Stop went close first-up last prep and has James Orman rides. Is one to throw into the exotics.

Race 4 - 1:33PM Channel 7 Members’ Handicap Tips (1600m)

Selections: 8,1,11,13.

8. IRISH PLAYBOY was an eye-catcher last start behind Skyman and going again at 1600m will be of benefit to him fourth-up now he's completed a run over the trip. Doesn't look far off a peak run and he's a live chance at decent odds.

1. Sunshine Rising finished second to Zeyrek over 2000m two back. He’s dropping back to 1600m and has the conditioning to be strong late. 

I’m not sure of 11. Alcyone’s ceiling, although he hasn’t been far off at his past couple. Should be ready to produce now third-up.

13. Santero has been very consistent since moving north, but this is harder again.

Race 5 - 2:08PM Spirit Of Boom Tips (1200m)

Selections: 8,6,1,10.

The debut run of 8. DUCASSE was superb, with the colt jumping out of the ground when finishing a half length third behind a more experienced Dipsy Doodle at Rosehill, a filly that was there off a second-up win. His trials showed a similar pattern. 

6. Addriel won in an inferior race at Ipswich, but donkey-licked them all the same. He could easily have improved further from that win.

1. Empire Of Japan tongue’s were wagging about this Snowden colt prior to the Golden Slipper where he ran fifth. He’s had a 6 week let up since the Sires.

10. Appin Girl will give them something to chase. Not sure about 1200m, but her class might get her through.

Race 6 - 2:43PM JRA Chairman’s Handicap Tips (2000m) 

Selections: 5,8,12,3.

This Group 3 has got a good mix of middle distance and staying types. The rise in trip to 2000m is the key here for 5. LONDON BANKER and Jimmy Orman has been given the ride, which is a decent lead. Wasn't far away last start and will strip fitter third-up. 

8. Kalapour looked the winner in the straight last start, but Serpentine was too tough and staved him off. Good winner the run before that.  .

12. Yaphet has taken on some tough assignments, which included the Group 1 Australian Cup. This is easier. 

3. Cephus won the Group 2 Ajax three runs back, which lines up well here. He's racing well.

Race 7 - 3:22PM Ladbrokes Rough Habit Plate Tips (2000m)  

Selections: 1,2,5,8. 

1. KOVALICA is a short price, but on his Guineas win, he deserves to be and should be better placed third-up and up to 2000m. He won over this course in December and this is another key race to tick off en route to the Queensland Derby.

2. The Vowels put together fice straight wins and showed great tenacity in all of those. Another win from him won’t surprise and he’ll push the fav again.

5. Stroke of Luck was a certainty beaten two starts back before finishing] eighth in the ATC Derby. He's very capable here on his Sydney form. 

8. Yasuke is still lightly raced,and may appreciate getting out to a trip. Stuck on for third last time.

Race 8 - 4:02PM Ladbrokes Doomben 10,000 Tips (1200m) 

Selections: 8,2,6,9.

They’ve had a couple of close battles over this sprint distance previously and I can’t see why they won’t fight it out again. 8. GIGA KICK has beaten Mazu by under a length the last two times they have met over 1200m and Mazu just didn’t get the trip last start over 1400m so dismiss that run. They’re the class runners.

2. Mazu is the reigning Doomben 10,000 winner and will look the winner in the straight. Whether he can hold out the new kid on the block is the question.

6. Prince Of Boom is the likely leader now Eduardo is scratched and might get his own way out in front. He will kick clear in the straight and could easily cause an upset.

11. Aft Cabin always carries the punters’ money and is better served at these shorter trips. He’s an exotics play for mine.

Race 9 - 4:38PM Magic Millions Bright Shadow Tips (1110m)

Selections: 3,9,11,10.

3. A VERY FINE RED almost reeled in the speedy Malkovich in what was a good second-up performance and she's value here third-up, now close to a peak. The daughter of Deep Field is very placed back against her own sex this Saturday.

9. Extremist led them up fresh and was run down by the odds-on pop. She’s a consistent type and will push them again. 

11. Fetch is in good form and draws to get all the favours. She will poke through over the final furlong. 

10. Siege won first-up last preparation and will track the speed. Will have the drop on them late.
