Brisbane Best
19 May 2017 | Racingandsports.com.au 
A heavy track is expected to greet punters at Doomben on Saturday which features the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) along with plenty of other competitive races.

It’s Somewhat has come back in terrific order this campaign and will be looking for his fourth win in a row when lining up in the Doomben Cup.

Following up his resuming Ajax win with an all the way victory in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile, It’s Somewhat proved too strong again when edging out Single Gaze in the Group 2 Hollindale at the Gold Coast last start.

Likely to push forward again and take up the lead in this field, the step up to 2000m should not cause any problems and the six-year-old is proven on wet tracks, winning the Doncaster on a heavy 8.

Darren Beadman who has recently taken over the reigns at Godolphin has started very well in his short time and James Doyle returns to partner It’s Somewhat in the feature race of the day.

It’s Somewhat definitely comes into the race with the best form and the current price of $4.20 looks a good bet for what he has produced in recent times.

The race prior Kenedna looks well placed when she lines up in the Magic Millions Roses (2000m) off strong recent form in Adelaide.

The Darren Weir-trained runner put two wins together in Group and Listed company before running a narrow second to Egg Tart in the Group 1 Oaks at Morphettville over this trip.

Building a very impressive career record, Kenedna rates clear of her rivals on recent form and has a decent record on wet tracks previously.

The current price of $3.20 looks a good bet based on her recent form and if she runs up to her last start effort you would expect her to be too strong once again.

Has drawn well in barrier 4 and is likely to be in the second half of the field again but like always will be running on strongly and looks among one of the better bets of the day.

Good Luck!
