Horse Racing Tips & Previews – Doomben | Sat 7th Aug

Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Saturday’s Doomben meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: True entire circuit

HAMLET VON SNITZEL won Rockhampton maiden two back then came to town and demolished them. Can make it three straight.

REALEASE THE BEANS was back to winning form with a gutsy win here last start and third-up he can go on with it in this field.

DERANI finished too well to win at Ipswich last start and he rarely runs a bad race. Cannot leave him out.

GENERAL WOLFFE comes off last start Listed placing at Eagle Farm albeit well off winner. Place looks best chance.


LONDON BANKER powered away last 200m and won with something in hand at Eagle Farm last start. Will be in the mix again.

TAVION PRINCE knuckled down strongly to win here two back then was not beaten far when placed last start. A must for exotics.

HE RUNS AWAY kept grinding away and was not beaten far off slow tempo last start. Will keep coming and has place claims.

LAST WEEK was Edenhope Cup winner three starts back but battled since particularly on heavy. Will not want it too wet.


TRAMONTO only just missed in Listed company at Eagle Farm last start and that form looks good enough to win this.

CONTEMPUOUS is a consistent gelding who races well fresh (4:2-0-1) and loves it wet. Must respect first-up from spell.

LEADERSHIP SPILL only battled away in the second half fresh and may need another outing but would not leave out of exotics.

AVIEMORE was found to be striding short in front fresh so must be forgiving. Warmly supported there. Expect sharp improvement.


DZSENIFER she looks ready to win coming off three strong placings this prep. Would not be surprised to see her win this.

FIGHTING COMMANDO won with something in hand at Sunshine Coast last start and only needs that form to be in the mix.

ZIEMBA should have finished closer here last start when just got out too late when favourite. He can win this.

PROSPECTUS was making late ground here last start without threatening. Place claims look best chance.


Doomben R5 – BM72 Handicap 1600m

ADELASE found the front and just proved too smart here last start. If finds the front will take catching again.

WHAM gave them a galloping lesson at Toowoomba first-up from spell. Tougher affair but must respect.

ALDERMAN is a most consistent gelding but does not win out of turn. Cannot leave out of exotics.

MAKEDON was a Sunshine Coast winner when fresh last time in work. Must respect on first-up form.


SHE CAN SING resumes from spell. Won with something in hand at Ipswich then was even more impressive at Gold Coast. Big watch.

THE PINES only had the one start last time in work and was a class above winning in a canter. She can figure fresh.

DIS DAH WUN resumes. She has super first-up record (3:2-0-1) and she has only missed place once in eight starts. Must include.

POWER BOOM had some support first-up and liked the way she attacked the line when beaten less than a length. Chance.


SO CLEVER was dominant winning his first two starts then he should have won here last start when found trouble. Can win.

FAR TOO EASY deserves his chance in town after two dominant Grafton wins. Looks talented and can measure up.

FUJI FLYER kept coming and found minor spot here last start. Only needs to hold that form to be a factor in this.

INVINCORE just missed at Sunshine Coast fresh then did not finish off at Grafton last outing. Ready third-up.


SHOOTING FOR GOLD is racing in super form winning both starts by a big margin this prep. Hard to see them beating him if he holds that form.

TOTALLY CHARMED was impressive winning at Sunshine Coast first-up and that made it three straight. Cannot leave out.

EF TROOP overraced a touch last start but still stayed on and held minor spot. Ready to find best third-up from spell.

DESERT MAN was dominant here two back then overran late at Eagle Farm. Back on his favourite track and can win.


REALLY DISCREET showed sharp turn-of-hoof to win by a big space here last start. Only needs to hold that form to win again.

ROMAN AUREUS is threatening to win. Always wide and only just missed here last start when should have won. Major player.

STUTTERING is another threatening to win coming off a couple of solid runs to begin prep. Third-up and this a winnable race.

WAPITI resumes. Only the one placing from his three first-up tries and prefer when gets over further than this but he can run a cheeky race fresh.
