Doomben R1 – Maiden Handicap 1350m

13:18 (local time)

STYLE SEEKER resumes from spell. Placed in both starts at first prep and recent trial should have him forward enough for this. Drawn ideally and can win this.

DOCTOR JACK did not get through the wet ground at Ipswich last start. Previous form had been solid and if finds firmer ground can bounce back.

DAY DAY SUPREME showed plenty of speed at Ipswich last start and was only overran final stages. If he can find early lead he will take catching.

DATA PATCH fought the race out strongly at Gold Coast last start. Comes into this third-up from spell of two sound placings and must consider.


GO WANDJI has given them a galloping lesson in last two starts. Drawn perfectly and he looks bit better than this field. The one to beat.

ASTRO BOY TOY fought the race out strongly to just miss first-up at Ipswich. Sure to be better from that outing and he can get away with this.

SPOKESMAN started favourite at Ipswich last start and got the job done running leader down late. He will take some catching.

HOT SPRING GOLD resumes from spell. Raced well in Sydney last time in work and he has won fresh. This winnable race.


ENTERPRISE MIA was well supported into short priced favourite at Eagle Farm last start and she got the job done with soft win. She can measure up to these.

Liked the way RATIONS finished the race off when placed first-up from spell. Sure to strip fitter and from her inside barrier she gets chance.

BENGAL BANDIT was placed here two starts back then he got the major prize at Sunshine Coast last start. Drawn to get ideal run and must consider.

VIVYN was odds on at Gold Coast last start and led until last couple of strides. Will roll forward and a must for first four players.


OUTBACK PLAYBOY is a debutant from the Robert Heathcote stable. He has been impressive winning both his trials and if any stable support would jump on board.

PRINCE AMONGST MEN had the perfect run but had to settle for place at Sunshine Coast last start. Been consistent and will be in placings again.

IL TORO D’ORO is another debutant who comes off sound Sunshine Coast trial placing. Needs luck from barrier but would not leave out of chances.

CHIEF ARTIE comes into this ready to find best third-up from spell. Placed at Ipswich last start and can sneak into a minor spot again.


NOT ANOTHER just ran out of fitness on debut when found one better final stages. Had a break since and recent trial win suggests she has improved enough to be right in this.

ISLAND MAGIC is the big query from the Tony Gollan stable. Won her only trial impressively and Ryan Maloney takes the mount. Expect she will have plenty of support.

HALLSIDE MARTINI comes off sound Deagon trial win and first couple beat the others easily. She is big watch on debut.

Would have put EMPRESS ZOU on top if she had drawn anywhere but the car park. Still would not leave her out of exotics.


NEPTUNE’S CHOICE was placed in a better race than this here last start. Has not had all that much luck with the barrier draw but going to have something each way.

KHAALIS started favourite at Eagle Farm last start and only just missed in driving finish. Only needs to hold that form to be right in the mix.

MOTAMAYIZ comes into this off a string of minor placings. He has the speed to go forward and lead these and will take some catching from the corner.

SHEBRINGZIT was long odds on at Sunshine Coast last start and she got the job done. Drawn perfectly and she can make it two in a row.


NEVER PAID raced on the speed and won again at Ipswich last start. That made it three wins from last four starts and although drawn wide would not dismiss.

Liked the way QUEEN SWEEPER finished the race off to win at Sunshine Coast last start. She comes into this third-up from spell and can win again.

SUPER ONE SUSIE ran on solidly finishing just behind Never Paid at Ipswich last start. Finds similar race and she gets chance to go one better.

MORT DOYLE rarely runs a bad race. Run was better than finishing position suggests last start and he has place claims.


STORMY ROCK covered extra ground first-up at Gold Coast and that cost him as faded late and beaten less than 2 lengths. Strips fitter and if he gets better run can win this.

PRINCESS TENKO resumes. She raced consistently last prep including a couple of wins. Drawn touch awkwardly but she has ability and cannot leave out.

VIRTUOUS MISS made it two in a row winning at Eagle Farm last start. She has drawn out in the car park but she will be in the mix.

ALLEZ ZOU finished too well to get the money at Sunshine Coast last start. Another who has horror gate but a must for exotics.
