Doomben 10000 2018

Saturday May 12, 2018

Ladbrokes Tip: The Victory Stakes serves as the key lead-up to the rescheduled Doomben 10,000

The Doomben 10,000 is now the first Group 1 race of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival after the 2017 changes saw it moved forward a fortnight. Taking place on a Saturday in early – mid May at Doomben Racecourse, the Doomben 10,000 is a weight-for-age sprint now contested over 1200m having previously been run over 1350m. Offering $700,000 in prize money the race now serves as a nice lead-up to the Group 1 BTC Cup (1300m) – which from 2017 has been known as the Darley Kingsford Smith Cup.

Sea Siren (2012) was the last horse to complete the previous BTC Cup – Doomben 10,000 double when the former was held two weeks before over 1200m. The Doomben 10,000 horses are likely to come off a Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign or have had an earlier Queensland lead-up at Eagle Farm in the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) in Brisbane.

Following a Doomben 10,000 run, gallopers are likely to follow the new winter path into the Kingsford Smith Cup over 1300m and then into the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in June – Queensland’s richest race.

The latest edition of the Doomben 10000 ran on Saturday May 12, 2018 .

Doomben 10000 Field

The Doomben 10,000 field attracts a line-up of the season’s best weight-for-age sprinters and from 2017 after being moved forward two weeks, became a winter carnival kick-off point for sprinters.

The largest Doomben 10,000 field in recent years was 20 starters when Red Oog won from the inside barrier in 2005. The only time in over 30 years the Doomben 10,000 field featured under 10 runners was when Beaded defeated just six rivals in a seven-starter field in 2011.

Horses come into the Doomben 10,000 field via a number of races, but after the race was moved in 2017 the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) in Brisbane is now the key lead-up event.

Doomben 10,000 nominations close on the Tuesday of the week before race day, with the final field of acceptances closing on the Wednesday of race week.

Doomben 10000 Form Guide

The Doomben 10,000 form guide features all the must know info and stats for punters looking to place a well-informed wager on the race including the jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up runs of all the horses in the field.

Barrier seven produced five of the 11 Doomben 10,000 winners from 2007 – 2018 – including Music Magnate in 2016 – and is considered the best gate to draw. Sydney visitors have a solid record so watching the Doomben 10,000 form for Sydney-trained horses that ran well in a race like the All Aged Stakes over 1400m at Randwick in the lead-up is important.

The Doomben 10,000 form has stacked up in future Group 1 Brisbane races in recent years including the $1.5 million Stradbroke Handicap (1400m / 1350). In 2015 Boban won the Doomben 10,000 before a Stradbroke second, while Generalife ran third in both races that year.

  • 1st: #1 REDZEL ($2.30)
  • 2nd: #4 CARE TO THINK ($14)
  • 3rd: #12 IN HER TIME ($3.60)

REDZEL ($2.30) is the reigning champion had firming favourite in Doomben 10,000 betting, the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained inaugural The Everest winner looking hard to beat. He’ll be on the speed from the favourable barrier and hasn’t run worse than second in his past 12 runs going back to November of 2016. That’s a hugely impressive streak and odds are he can bounce back and return to Group 1 winning form after getting run down by Trapeze Artist in the TJ Smith Stakes last time out. CARE TO THINK ($14) is the value place chance having won all three of his past starts at the Doomben track, albeit in easier company. TJ Smith Stakes third placed mare IN HER TIME ($3.60) has gone up leaps and bounds since her fifth in this last year. Placings in the Stradbroke and Tiara at Doomben after that last winter, winner of The Galaxy first-up this prep and could just come out and win.
