2019 Doomben Cup: Tips And Race Preview

Chris Waller dominates the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Doomben Cup at Doomben on Saturday, Youngstar loves Brisbane and we can back her at $4.80.

Archedemus is a natural leader so expect him to roll forward from the wide gate. Hallelujah Boy can push forward. YOUNGSTAR (13) is classy mare who has needed her two runs since a spell but will be ready now. Raced wide but ran on well on a wet track in the Hollindale last start. Has strong statistics at the course and the distance and races well third up so looks set to peak.

LIFE LESS ORDINARY (2) was impressive when running away to win the Hollindale last start, beating many of these rivals in the process. He is another with good third up form so he could progress off that. MISTER SEA WOLF (3) chased well for second in the Hollindale after a resuming G3 win in Sydney. Well drawn and his form must be respected.

GEM SONG (16) battled well to place in his first attempt against the older gallopers last time and won a G3 in his own age group before that. Progressive and could measure up. KENEDNA (12) won a G1 two back and could be a big improver back on a firm track.


1st – 13 Youngstar

2nd – 2 Life Less Ordinary

3rd – 3 Mister Sea Wolf

4th – 16 Gem Song

2019 The Roses: Tips And Race Preview

Class to the fore in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 The Roses, Scarlet Dream ran so well in Sydney without winning and she is at $2.50.

Itz Lily could hold the lead from the inside stall. Etana and Ceol Na Mara can settle handy. SCARLET DREAM (1) is smart filly with a couple of black type placings on her recent record including a closing second in the G1 Australian Oaks last start. Has had a month off but has been kept up to the mark with a trial win. If she performs up to that level she is the one to beat.

ALIFEROUS (2) also performed well during the Sydney autumn carnival, steaming home to win the G3 Adrian Knox at this distance before a fourth in the Oaks. She too has trialled since then and is drawn to get the favours.

ON THE WHITE TURF (15) is improving rapidly. She won two in a row at the provincials then was good against the boys when fourth in the G3 Packer Plate. Suited back against the fillies. PINMEDOWN (5) has won two of her last three starts in NZ including a G3. Can measure up. ETANA (14) has claims off her last start placing in the Gold Coast Bracelet.


1st – 1 Scarlet Dream

2nd – 2 Aliferous

3rd – 15 On The White Turf

4th – 5 Pinmedown

2019 BRC Sprint: Tips And Race Preview

Sydney form heads north to lead the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 BRC Sprint, Passage Of Time can be supported again at good odds of $9.

Expect the speedy I'm A Rippa to lead. Freddie Fox Trot and Boomsara can be prominent. PASSAGE OF TIME (12) heads north with good Sydney form. Resumed with a close second at Randwick before scoring a strong 2L victory on the Kensington track last outing. Takes a step up in grade but has won third up before so should be peaking.

CHAPTER AND VERSE (10) impressed first up when he ran on and draw away for a soft win. Has won two of three second attempts and hasn't missed a place at this distance. Big threat. TYZONE (6) won the Goldmarket and has only been about 2L from the winner in his two runs since in stakes races. Contender.

ADDICTIVE NATURE (11) missed by a nose at Flemington last time. Third-up winner who can peak. BOOMSARA (7) is smart and could be a big improver back on firm footing.


1st – 12 Passage Of Time

2nd – 10 Chapter And Verse

3rd – 6 Tyzone

4th – 11 Addictive Nature
