Doomben Racing Tips for 28.7.2021 - Best Bets for Brisbane

We have sorted the form of every race and found four of the best bets at Doomben. Last-start winners come to the fore for the Queensland meeting and sticking with the in-form runners is a key to success when betting at Doomben.
    Table of Contents
  • Race 1 12:43pm AEST – No. 7 Vitesse Francais
  • Race 2 1:18pm AEST – No. 7 Lasting Kiss
  • Race 4 2:28pm AEST – No. 1 Hamlet Von Snitzel
  • Race 6 3:38pm AEST – No. 3 Duke of Buckingham

Race 1 12:43pm AEST – No. 7 Vitesse Francais

The Kelly Schweida-trained three-year-old looks ready to win after consecutive third placings and he doesn’t face an overly tough maiden field. The well-bred son of So You Think finished third at Doomben when running 2.6 lengths behind She’s an Eagle before finishing third over 1800m at Eagle Farm. Dropping in distance bodes well and he looks better suited over the mile.

Some of his best work has come at Doomben and having James Orman in the saddle helps. He is riding in good form this season and given the form of the rest of the field, punters should have Vitesse Francais on top. He should break maidens on Wednesday and do it in fine style.

Race 2 1:18pm AEST – No. 7 Lasting Kiss

Lasting Kiss has yet to run worse than second from five career starts and we’re sticking with the consistent type. The three-year-old daughter of Real Impact owns two wins and three second placings, including a last start win at Grafton. She scored by 2.3 lengths in a dominant display, and although rising in class is never easy, she looks to have a fair amount of class.

Carrying 54kg from barrier six makes her tough to beat and she’s going to get an economical run from there. Track conditions are no problem as she handles both good and soft surfaces, so if she handles the rise in class, she will be awfully tough to handle.

Race 4 2:28pm AEST – No. 1 Hamlet Von Snitzel

Looking to go back-to-back is Hamlet Von Snitzel, who scored an overdue win at Rockhampton and he is more than capable of producing back-to-back wins. The two-year-old colt by Snitzel scored by 2.5 lengths after promising to deliver throughout his fledgling career. He was disappointing in his first four starts in Queensland, but dropping in grade at Rocky was just what he needed for this confidence.

He now rises back up in class at Doomben, but he meets a field ripe for the taking. The Natalie McCall-trained sprinter faces a field yet to win a race and his experience crossing the line first shouldn’t be overlooked. Getting the inside draw is another positive, so there aren’t many things going against the top weight.

Race 6 3:38pm AEST – No. 3 Duke of Buckingham

Duke of Buckingham was good enough to score back-to-back wins at Hawkesbury earlier this preparation and there is nothing wrong with that form. The former New South Wales-based runner comes off a fourth at Gosford, but he didn’t handle the heavy conditions, and the slightly better track surface on Wednesday helps his cause.

Trained by Matthew Dunn, the three-year-old son of Street Boss has figured in the finish in five of his nine starts, and coming to Queensland could see his form continue to improve. There are no superstars in this field and punters should get each-way odds worth taking.
