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

Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: Out 4.5m entire circuit

The form of MORT DOYLE is impeccable. Moving through his classes with authority and his last win was dominant. Should drive through and lead these and although gets up in distance he looks strong enough to handle it.

SUPERARE resumes from spell. May have had enough when failed in the G1 J.J.Atkins before break. Two trial wins leading into this have been strong and although drawn little wide he should run cheeky race fresh.

MOLLY’S ROCKING arguably should have won in the small field at Eagle Farm last start when held-up. Will get back but if leaders stop she will be the one running on late.

GREAT KEPPELL is very honest. Yet to miss a place in any of her four first-up tries and cannot leave him out of multiples.


CHICO MILAGRO is an up and coming gelding. Just found one better final stages here last start. His previous win was dominant and this looks a nice race for him.

AMICHE has been in super form this time in winning three of her four starts. Finished strongly for soft win this track/distance last start and no reason she cannot win again.

HEARTS LIFTED chased home the speed Mort Doyle here last start. Gets out to the 1200m third-up from spell and she is ready to show best form.

FISTICUFFS was sent out favourite first-up but was only getting warm final stages in the small field. Fitter and the step out in distance ideal.


MITTERE started this prep in winning form with two straight wins then went to Eagle Farm and was making good late ground in the small field. Should get nice run in behind the speed and will have last crack at these.

SNOWZONE is racing in super form. Won on the heavy four starts back then has followed up with three sound placings. Never runs a bad race and can return to winners stall.

ONE STRYKE was making good late ground when placed at Sunshine Coast last start. Finds winnable race in town and cannot leave out of place chances.

PARKO controlled the race from the front and fought them all off here last start. If he can get his own way in this he will be the one to catch again.


Liked the way SAFEWORK got to the line despite covering ground behind Kisukano last start. Drawn to get perfect run behind the speed and if he can have some luck from the corner should go close to winning this.

THE ACTUARY finished last prep winning the Listed Phoenix Plate with ease on heavy ground. Recent trial should have her forward enough to run a cheeky race fresh.

AERIAL COMBAT looks like the new “Rockhampton Rocket”. Demolished them in two runs this prep and although hard to line up his form for city class but from inside gate he should drive through and lead these and may take catching.

TYCOON EVIE got her well deserved maiden win out of the way here last start. This a step up but she can go on with it.


LOVE STRUCK just keeps winning. Drew clear to win with ease at Eagle Farm two back then repeated the dose with tough win last start. No reason cannot make it three straight.

SNOWZONE is a model of consistency. Won on the heavy ground here four starts back and has followed up with three strong placings. Some rain forecast which would enhance his chances.

VOILA was sent out favourite here last start but she never looked happy in between runners and did not finish race off. Drawn wider which could be to her advantage and she can bounce back in this.

IMPASSE just found hem a little too slick first-up. He has won two of his four starts when second-up and getting out to this distance should be ideal.


NAPOLEON SOLO looks ready to win this campaign. Liked the way he kept coming behind the in form Cloak when placed here last start and that form looks good enough to get away with this.

FLYING MACHINE came from well back to win over the 1600m at Eagle Farm last start. She finds a similar task and would be looking for her to be steaming home final stages.

TOP ME UP AGAIN was placed behind Sayl here two starts back then back in distance last start and flew late to win. Racing well and back to this trip looks ideal.

SEEINGISBELIEVING is making his debut for the Tony Gollan stable. Comes off a strong Newcastle win last start and although this a little harder would not leave out of chances.


SUPERGIANT was always wide and looked in need of the run when tiring first-up. Strips fitter second-up from spell and he demolished them at Ipswich second-up last time in work. Quality gelding and will win better races than this during the Spring.

TORYJOY is overdue for a win this prep. Couple of placings on the heavy ground in Sydney before being beaten less than a length in the Rowley Mile last start. Drawn ideally and can win.

ONE FOR BETTY is a mare in form. Won her first two to begin prep then just got too far back at Eagle Farm last start and arrived a couple of strides too late. May need some luck from the corner but she will be hitting the line hard.

KAONIC finally broke through for supporters at Eagle Farm last start. Now he has finally won he may go on with it in this.


How exciting to have the exciting ALLIGATOR BLOOD back for his Spring campaign. Will not be fully wound up for this but still should be too classy.

THE ODYSSEY is another resuming from a spell. Chased home the speedy Zoustyle in his recent trial and from inside gate here he should get the perfect run and will get his chance last 200m.

JUST ORM has race fitness on a few of the better chances. Has come from the back for impressive wins at last couple and if any chink in the armour of the class runners he will be there to pounce.

BANDIPUR benefited from a rail weaving ride to win the Listed Eye Liner Stakes last start. He has never been far away in his races and will be competitive again.


ALIFEROUS comes into this ready third-up from spell. Came from well off them to just miss behind Kaonic last start and the extra distance should be the winning move.

SIR BARNABUS demolished them at Eagle Farm last start. Looks to be progressing nicely this campaign and would not leave him out of winning chances.

KAONIC finally broke through for supporters at Eagle Farm last start. Now he has finally won he may go on with it in this.

HUMBOLT CURRENT was back in winning form this track/distance last start when bolted in. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and will look winner at some stage in straight.
