Horse Racing Tips & Previews – Doomben | Wed 18th Aug

Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Wednesdays Doomben meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 8 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 8m entire circuit

ALLORA ENZO looks ready to break his maiden status. Chased home the smart Scissorhands here two starts back then was beaten less than a length at Gold Coast last start. He goes on top.

TE JINA ROSE is another that has put together a string of placings and she looks well placed to be right in the mix. Will not be maiden for much longer.

COULOMB was only run down final stages at Ipswich last start and coming into this third-up from spell he looks close to finding best form.

WHITEWATER started short at Sunshine Coast on debut and thought he chased home solidly but winner bit too good. He will be better from the experience.


SHIJIN found the front and just proved too smart for them at Gold Coast last start. Drawn to drive through and lead again and she will be the one to catch.

SPECTROSCOPE started big odds at Doomben first-up and was never in the race. Will still want further than he has here but expect an improved effort.

CATESBY battled on well enough without getting close at Doomben last start. Only small field and he can sneak into a minor spot.

PARKO was beaten less than 2 lengths at Doomben last start and although hard to see him winning can feature in first four.


Only race fitness that cost TESAURA first-up from spell when she led until last couple of strides. Strips fitter and she will be the one to catch last 200m.

FROSTY MANGO showed good speed on debut and was only claimed last stride at Gold Coast. Will be better from the race experience and has the speed to be in this for a long way.

ROYAL REBELLION was not beaten all that far at Sunshine Coast on debut then fought the race out strongly when placed at Gold Coast. This nice race for her and she can sneak into a placing.

Liked the way GET EVEN worked home when not beaten all that far at Sunshine Coast on debut. Has drawn awkwardly but would not leave out of first four players.


AZURE PRIDE looks ready to break his maiden status. Placed in both his runs this time in and gets a winnable maiden here.

REAWAKEN has been placed in two of three starts this time in. Fought the race out strongly when placed at Gold Coast last start and he will go close again.

IMBATIDO got long way back at Sunshine Coast last start and although made good late ground just missed placing. Will give them a start but watch for him last 200m.

BARONIAL has been placed in all three career starts. Looked like he was going to win at Ipswich first-up but just peaked late. He will be in this for a long way.


IAMICAN is the query resuming from spell. She won when fresh at Sunshine Coast last time in work and if she is forward enough would give this a real shake.

HIGHLAND SON comes into this third-up from spell. Placed in both runs at Sunshine Coast leading into this and would not leave him out of winning chances.

LIZA WITH A ZEE won at Grafton two starts back then went to Doomben and battled on well to be placed. Consistent and she will be competitive again.

A RIVER SOMEWHERE won with authority at the Gold Coast when first-up last time in work. She will not mind if there is some rain about.


WAY BEYOND comes into this ready to win third-up from spell. He has not been beaten all that far in both runs and from ideal barrier here gets his chance.

MONTEZ was dominant on the heavy ground at Beaudesert first-up from spell then he may just have gone a bit too hard here last start and was overran late. He will take catching.

VITESSE FRANCAIS won his maiden two starts back then he backed that up with another win last start. Drawn perfectly and he will make his own luck going forward.

BLAZING SUNRISE put together a couple of solid placings then his run was better than finishing position suggests here last start. Would not leave him out of exotics.


LET’S PARTY MARTY looked like he would benefit from his first-up run at Doomben when just tired final stages. Strips fitter and will be in this for a long way.

OCEAN TREATY is the big query resuming from a spell. She won four straight when working through her classes last time in work and from ideal barrier she can surprise these.

GREAT KEPPELL has a super first-up record (5:0-2-2) and he raced consistently last time in work. Would not leave him out of place chances.

REBEL SALUTE only just missed in driving finish first-up at Ipswich and he can go one better with right run in transit.


TOLKOWSKY went forward and fought the race out strongly when placed at Doomben first-up from spell. Should be better from the outing and he can get away with this.

BOHEMIAN BOOM finished too well to win narrowly at Sunshine Coast two starts back then he took on better race at Eagle Farm last start and was beaten less than 2 lengths. He can surprise these.

HELSUN resumes from spell. Will be better when he gets over bit further than this but has had recent trial and not without a cheeky chance.

CHOMPERS finally broke his maiden at Gold Coast first-up from spell winning with something in hand. Drawn to get ideal run and he can measure up to these.
