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

Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 9m entire circuit

THE GOOD THE BAD has been placed in her last couple of starts. Drawn to get the perfect run in behind the speed and with an ounce of luck from the corner should get here chance.

TEXAS TRAMP is another who has been racing in consistent form with two sound placings leading into this. Gets out to longer trip which should suit and she will be competitive.

FROM NOW raced bit greenly but held place at Gatton two back before getting too far back last start. Should benefit from the extra distance but has had plenty of chances and place looks best.

STONEFISH has not been all that far off them in recent starts and may feature in the multiples.


SIENNA’S CHOICE started favourite at Ipswich last start but just got too far off them before running home into minor spot. Bigger track will suit and would be watching for her over last 200m.

TERRAJOHNA brings some consistent form down from Toowoomba. This not a difficult maiden and happy to throw him in place chances.

AMORE PRIMUS has the speed to go forward and lead these. Was only claimed final stages at Ipswich last start and that form good enough to get away with this.

STOCKED AND LOADED was in the market here on debut but missed the start and never really recovered. Sure to be better from the race experience and would expect him to improve.


TAYELLA did not have all that much luck when raced wide at Eagle Farm on debut but she stuck on well and held on for minor placing. She is sure to be better from the race experience and looks tough to beat.

TRUMPED UP is ready to win his maiden. Not beaten all that far when placed in first two starts back then beaten just over a length at Ipswich last start. Must include in major chances.

HEARTS DENIED resumes from spell. Started favourite here first-up last time in work on heavy ground and ran into minor placing. Dominant recent trial winner and expect him to be major player in this.

GAELIC PUZZLE is another first-up this time in new stable (ex: Bjorn Baker). Did not flatter in two NSW provincial runs last time in work but this not difficult and recent trial was solid.


BERING SEA was beaten less than a length behind Fastnet Cyclone in similar race to this here last start. Two placings in last two starts and gets his chance to go one better.

TOP ME UP AGAIN won here two starts back then battled on well enough when placed here last start in similar race as favourite. Would not be surprised to see him back in winners stall.

BRADBURY finished all over them to win at Ipswich last start. Extra distance looks ideal and can measure up to city class race.

JOCHBERG won with something in hand at Toowoomba two back then close up when placed at Gold Coast last start. Drawn to get ideal run and looks a major player.


INVINCIBLE GANGSTA gets back in his right race third-up from spell. Just been battling in better races this prep but looking for him to bounce back in easier company.

DECISIVE HEART has been racing well enough with two solid Gold Coast placings leading into this. Drawn to get the perfect sit in behind the speed and she will have last crack at leaders.

PAPER TRADE battled on well enough late to hold placing here last start but well off winner. Should sit forward and he can sneak into minor spot again.

BUFFY resumes from spell. She has been placed in two of her three first-up tries and stable thought enough to race her in Listed class before break. Class will take her a long way.


MANTELLI wanted to overrace up on the speed at Eagle Farm last start but he took over on the corner and held them all off for gutsy on pace win. Makes own luck rolling forward and takes catching again.

GINGER ROCK had nice trail in behind the speed before pouncing at right time to win here last start. Third-up from spell and from ideal barrier she can win again.

CABALO ESCURO is another who looks ready third-up from spell. Close up at Gold Coast fresh before tiring last start. She will not be far off these and sure to figure in finish.

BELLE’S PLUCK won two straight on the provincial circuit then came to town and overraced before tiring. Would not leave out of multiples.


KEEN ON GOLD has been racing in consistent form this time in. Won maiden with something in hand here three starts back then has been placed in two runs since. Drawn a touch awkwardly but happy to put him on top again.

CHAMPAGNE JET was not disgraced in much better race than this here last start. She gets back in right company and gets chance to return to winners stall.

Only race fitness that cost STILL INVINCIBLE first-up at Ipswich when had to do some early work and tired final stages. Drawn to lead these and the one to catch.

DR WHY NOT raced on the speed and proved too strong here winning maiden last start. This is a step up but would not leave out of multiples.


Going to finish the day with something each way on SUILVEN. Placed in two of his last three starts most recent a close minor spot at Eagle Farm when sat in behind the speed. Can see him getting a nice run in transit and will have last shot.

CENTREFIRE led all the way when well supported at Eagle Farm last start. Looks the likely speed again and will be the one to catch.

MANTELLI did some early work when overraced at Eagle Farm last start but stayed on and proved too strong. Drawn ideally and can win again.

LEGAL COUNSEL is getting into the veteran stage but he has not been beaten all that far this campaign and would not leave out of multiples.
