DOOMBEN, WEDNESDAY JUNE 28
By Brock Anderson @brockyando87
Rail Position: +10m Entire Circuit
Track Conditions: Soft 5
Track Comments: This is a reasonably sized track but the sweeping downhill run into the home straight generally means that it is tough to make ground and leaders are advantaged, especially with the rail out so far like it is today.
This gelding is on debut from the astute Tony Gollan yard and has plenty of ability by the looks of his only trial a little under a month ago when he finished 2nd but he wasn’t asked to do much and was under a vice like grip, from the good gate I expect Robbie Fradd to either lead or sit just behind the leaders and will be winning this very average contest today. Take the $2.50 that is currently available as I expect he will be starting much shorter then that. Get on!
Gold Coast based trainer Toby Edmonds has had a break out season and here at Doomben he has dominated with 27 wins from just 92 starters which gives him an unbelievable strike rate of almost 30%, he has some great chances here today and I expect him to get at least one winner on the board.
Leg 1 (Race 5) 1,3,8,10
Leg 2 (Race 6) 1
Leg 3 (Race 7) 1,2,7
Leg 4 (Race 8) 3,4,6,11
A $48 outlay will get you 100% of the dividend.
Race 1: 1,3,6,2 (Absolutely terrible race, #1 should win, if it doesn’t I think Pony Club will be its next stop)
Race 2: 1**,6,9,11 (#1 has trialled well and will go very close, big watch on #6)
Race 3: 13,3,5,7 (#13 was very good on debut and is juicey odds at the $6.00)
Race 4: 4**,6,5,7 (#4 has been backed off the map and drops along way in grade)
Race 5: 1,10,8,3 (#1 flies fresh and could be too good for them here, #10 will be highballing in front and could be hard to catch with the rail out so far)
Race 6: 1**,2,6,5 (#1 is a very nice up and coming horse and should be winning this event today)
Race 7: 7*,2,1,5 (#7 finds the easiest race she has seen in her career, the stable mate #2 is the main danger)
Race 8: 11,4,3,6 (#11 will be peaking third up today, forgive #4 for his ordinary effort last time out)
