Doomben Roses 2017

Saturday May 20, 2017

Ladbrokes Tip: The Roses – Queensland Oaks is a popular winter betting double in Brisbane

The Roses, also known as The Doomben Roses, is a Group 2 race for three-year-old fillies run at Doomben Racecourse on a Saturday in late May during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. Offering $175,000 in total prize money, the set weights race is run over 2000m, the same distance as the meeting’s feature race – the Group 1 Doomben Cup.

The fillies lining-up in The Roses field are traditionally heading towards a run in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse a fortnight later and the last filly to complete the double was Scarlett Lady (2011).

Before her, subsequent Caulfield and Melbourne Cup winner Ethereal (2011) was the last Doomben Roses winner to win the Queensland Oaks. In 2014, The Roses winner Arabian Gold went on to run second to Tinto in the Queensland Oaks, Tinto having come off a second in The Roses. Both Gondokoro (2nd in 2013) and Quintessential (4th in 2012) also went on to win the the group 1 after a good lead-up run in the Doomben Roses.

The latest edition of the The Roses ran on Saturday May 20, 2017 .

Doomben Roses Betting & Odds

The Roses betting markets are led by in-form fillies coming off good lead-up runs from the autumn – early winter season. The the fillies that finished in the money at the Gold Coast in the Bracelet usually head The Roses odds at Doomben, as do those dropping back in grade from a Group 1 Schweppes Oaks (2000m) run over the same distance in Adelaide a fortnight before. The last Doomben Roses favourite to salute for the punters was Kenedna ($3 in 2017) who came off a second in the Schweppes Oaks.

The Roses betting markets are dominated by fillies proven over at least 1800m and Gold Coast Bracelet graduates, and favourites have a fair recent record in the Group 2.
