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 .

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.
