|Where||Doomben Racecourse – 75 Hampden St, Ascot QLD 4007|
|When||Saturday, August 7, 2021|
|First Race||11:23am AEST|
HorseBetting’s Queensland form analyst brings you his best bets and quaddie numbers the nine-race card at Doomben this Saturday. The track is rated a Soft 5, the rail is in the true position for the entire course, and the first race is set to jump at 11:23am AEST.
Doomben Best Bet: Contemptuous
Steven O’Dea & Matthew Hoysted’s consistent five-year-old entire Contemptuous has had seven career starts for three wins and as many minor medals, including two third-place finishes last campaign behind Amiche and talented sprinter Weona Smartone. The son of Rubick had a recent trial where he finished second to a good trialler in Racecourse Road over the 840m course at Doomben on August 3. Drawn in barrier four, Baylee Nothdurft should have this horse in the first couple in the run, which will make him incredibly hard to run down.
Next Best at Doomben: London Banker
On the seven-day backup after winning at Eagle Farm last Saturday is Kelly Schweida’s improving stayer London Banker. The son of Tavistock finally got to a suitable trip last weekend and now stays at the 2212m, which is a massive bonus. Drawn in barrier five, Queensland’s form hoop, James Orman, will get the six-year-old in a good rhythm in the middle of the pack so they have a number of options as they turn. This gelding is rock-hard fit and was a very impressive 2.75-length winner last weekend, which suggests he can go on with the job now.
Doomben Value Bet: At Witz End
If you have heard of Northern Rivers-based trainer Owen Glue, chances are you’re either a local, or you, like us, have been impressed by At Witz End’s recent wins at Ipswich and Doomben. The six-year-old son of Epaulette has won nine from 33 starts, but his last two have been highlights at metropolitan level. Most recently, At Witz End won by 2.25 lengths at this track and distance in the same class on July 10. The gelding does rise 2.5kg and meets some of these worse off at the weights, but the winning form he is in suggests to us that he can go on with it. Brad Stewart takes over from Ryan Maloney, who is not riding at the meeting, and while they have drawn a touch wide in gate 13, they should still get over and be in a handy spot. The double-figure quote is great value.
