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: Out 3.5m entire circuit

HINGED raced on the speed and proved too strong final stages winning here last start. That made it two in a row and she can continue on her winning ways.

SHALUNA led them up in the same race as Hinged here first-up from spell but her run peaked late and she could only hang onto minor spot. Better from the run and takes catching in this.

BAYERISCHE comes out of the same race as the top two. Got long way off them early but liked the way he hit the line and out to the 1600m looks ideal.

ARCHDEACON looks the likely speed and he proved too strong winning at Eagle Farm last start. Expect he will roll along in front and if left alone will be up front for a long way.


SEENTOOMANY finished too well last 200m to win at Randwick two starts back then she chased home the smart Indispensable in small field here last start. That form good enough for this.

HE RUNS AWAY kept grinding away well enough over the two miles at Rosehill last start. Gets back in what looks and easier assignment here and can figure.

SMART METEOR chased home strongly from the corner and took over last 200m to win at Eagle Farm last start. Drawn to get the perfect run and he will be in the mix again.

TAVION PRINCE raced up on the speed and proved too smart for them here last start. Will make his own luck sitting in first couple and takes holding out.


WITHOUT THINKING won his first two starts to begin this prep then he was luckless in the Gunsynd Classic last start and should have finished closer. Drawn perfectly and gets chance to return to winner stall.

DZSENIFER comes into this third-up from spell. Beaten less than a length at Ipswich first-up then just found one better at Sunshine Coast last start. Third-up from spell and happy to have something each way on her in this.

TAMILAIDE finished too well and won with something in hand at Grafton last start. Will give them a start from the corner but has big finish and watch for him late.

SAFEEYA came to Queensland and powered away to win an easier race at Eagle Farm last start. Steps up in class but she is talented and can measure up to these.


MIAMI FLEISS is the big query resuming from a spell. She won her first two starts at first prep before battling on heavy ground before break. Recent trial will have her fit enough for first-up tilt.

DUSTY TYCOON looked like she would benefit from her first-up run when just faded last 100m into minor placing. Her second-up record is super (3:2-0-1) and she can get away with this.

ELOQUENTLY just keeps winning. She goes forward and makes her own luck going forward and no reason she cannot make it five straight.

MISHANI MISS was only overran last 100m at Sunshine Coast first-up from spell. If she can improve off that outing she will be in this for a long way.


Going to have something each way on TOP ORDER in this. Liked the way he got to the line when placed behind Tavion Prince last start and that form good enough to be included in chances.

BLACKLOG was beaten just on a length here two starts back then went to Gold Coast and ran into a placing. Form consistent and can sneak a place in this.

HONORABLE SPIRIT was dominant last 200m at Gold Coast last start winning by a soft 3 lengths. Should get nice run in behind the speed and will take holding out final stages.


ACROBATIC won with something in hand here last start showing a sharp turn-of-hoof last 200m. Comes into this third-up from spell and he can win again.

SO CLEVER is the one to watch in this. He has won his only two starts in a canter and although this is toughest test he has no weight on his back and can make it three from three.

EXPLOSIVE QUALITY won her first two starts this time in work then was just run down last 100m at Gold Coast last start. Drawn ideally and she can feature.

LUSKIN HERO is another who began his prep in style with a couple of strong wins then beaten less than a length behind the smart Nordicus here last start. That good form for this.


INDISPENSABLE controlled the race from the front before powering away for soft win here last start. If he gets similar run out front here he will be the one to catch.

PROFIT finished too well to win at Eagle Farm first-up from spell then he has just got too far off them last couple. Drawn wide but if he finds best will be right in the mix.

STARDOME railed through for impressive win here two starts back then just found out over the 2400m last start. Back to right distance range and will bounce back in this.

PROSPECTUS finished too well to win at Ipswich two starts back then went to Eagle Farm and was poor. He is better than that and can bounce back in this.


EAST ASIA is racing in super form having won her last couple. Finished hard to get up late here two starts back then came from well back to win at Sunshine Coast. Drawn bit wide but can win again.

REALLY DISCREET was dominant winning here three starts back then taken on a couple of hot races since but just battled. She finds winnable race here and can figure.

HARD LABOUR raced up on the speed and showed sharp turn-of-hoof to win at Grafton last start. Will make own luck going forward and will take holding out final stages.

BEACHBREAK comes into this third-up from spell. Her two runs back from spell have been better than finishing positions suggest and she must be include in chances.


ROMAN AUREUS is ready to win. He has been placed in both runs back and finds similar race here. He looks clear top pick to finish up the program.

ULYSSES was placed at Randwick first-up from spell then forget he went around last start as found plenty of trouble. He will measure up to this.

STUTTERING looked like he would benefit from the run first-up when weakened after leading. Sure to be better from the outing and from inside gate will lead these for a long way.

NORDICUS has been impressive working through his classes winning last couple in town. Drawn bit awkwardly but no reason he cannot make it three straight.
