What Doomben Races
Where Doomben Racecourse – 75 Hampden St, Ascot QLD 4007
When Wednesday, April 3, 2024
First Race 11:52am AEST

Brisbane’s Doomben Racecourse will host a massive 10-race card this Wednesday afternoon, with several runners taking their place in rescheduled races that were abandoned last Saturday. The track was rated a Soft 7 at the time of acceptances, and with rain forecast to fall during the meeting, the surface is expected to stay in the Soft range. The rail will be pushed out to the +8m position for the entire circuit, with racing set to kick off at 11:52am AEST.

Best Bet at Doomben: Transatlantic

Transatlantic was a dominant winner over 1500m last start, when the Tony Gollan-trained colt settled on speed before careering away with a 3.3-length victory over Side Show at Eagle Farm. Angela Jones gave this son of Snitzel a peach of a ride that day, and she will reconnect with the galloper as he steps up to 1650m for the first time. From barrier five, Jones should be able to push forward and replicate her previous ride, and if Transatlantic shows the same turn of foot late, he will be winning again.

Best Bet

Race 2 – #1 Transatlantic (5)

3yo Colt | T: Tony Gollan | J: Angela Jones (60kg)

Next Best at Doomben: Pole Position

After finishing third behind En Pointe on his Queensland debut at this track and trip on March 13, Pole Position steps back in grade as he seeks his first victory in the Sunshine State. With a solid second-up record (4:1-1-1), the son of Astern will appreciate Marnu Potgeiter’s 3kg claim and a softer track. From barrier six, Potgieter can settle this guy behind the speed in the one-one position and make his move around the home turn.

Next Best

Race 10 – #2 Pole Position (6)

5yo Gelding | T: Annabel Neasham | J: Marnu Potgieter (a3) (61.5kg)

+450 with Neds

Best Value at Doomben: Polarising

Polarising took care of her maiden two starts back with a strong win at the Sunshine Coast before going down in a photo finish at Grafton over 1175m. There appears to be a lot of speed in this 1100m contest, so expect Boris Thornton to push forward and settle behind the speed from barrier three. If the leaders go too quick, Polarising can peel off their backs and run over the top of them late.

Best Value

Race 5 – #11 Polarising (3)

4yo Mare | T: Steven O’Dea & Matthew Hoysted | J: Boris Thornton (58kg)
