Capacity fields have been confirmed for nearly all eight races on Doomben 10,000 Day and we have analysed every runner in each, to help you find a winner.

The action on Doomben 10,000 Day will get underway with the running of the Swire Shipping Class 6 Plate (1100m) at 12:15pm local time and will officially close after the Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) at 4:39pm.

Race 1 (12:15pm) Swire Shipping Class 6 Plate (1110m)

A strong and capacity field has been confirmed for Race 1 at Doomben on Saturday and there is several horses that would not look out of place in the winner’s stall. Former Magic Millions winner Le Chef (barrier 10) returned to the races for a smart win on the Sunshine Coast on April 30th and is over the odds at his current quote. Consistent sprinter Tumbler (barrier 1) was far from disgraced when sixth in the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago and will enjoy a step back in company into this race, while Better Land (barrier 5) is drawn ideally and has the notable advantage of Jeff Lloyd in the saddle. Trevinder is a live chance in the race if he can overcome the wide and awkward barrier 18.

Tip: No 8 Better Land – Each Way ($9.50/$3.50)

Race 2 (12:51pm) Ambassador Travel BM85 (1350m)

It is another open and capacity field set to step out for Race 2 on Doomben 10,000 Day and there is a case to be made for a good portion of runners. The Robert Heathcote-trained Privlaka (barrier 13) has returned to racing in outstanding form this time and should find a good position off the early pace from a central draw, while Skylimit (barrier 7) looks over the odds in this company and should tuck in nicely from his draw. Payroll (barrier 6) is a proven first-up performer, could receive the run of the race from barrier 6 and will carry only 54kgs in this race. Godolphin mare Maternal steps back in company from her last-start eighth in the Group 3 Godolphin Crown (1300m) and should prove extremely tough to beat if jockey Brenton Avdulla can find a good running position from barrier 16.

Tip: No. 14 Payroll – Each Way ($12/$4.50)

Race 3 (1:26pm) Listed Singapore Turf Club Members’ Handicap (1600m)

The first black type race on Doomben 10,000 day will see eleven milers line up at 1:26pm. The scratching of Chris Waller-trained Amovatio has really opened the markets and in-form local Jumbo Prince (barrier 3) leads proceedings. The Outback Prince entire has been a strong and consistent performer throughout his entire racing career so far and was last seen placing fourth in the Listed Tails Stakes (1600m) on April 22nd, having dead-heated the Listed Weetwood Handicap (1200m) his start prior. Main dangers for the classy local include last-start winner include Punta Norte (barrier 12) and Cantbuybetter (barrier 9).

Tip: No. 2 Jumbo Prince ($4.20)

Race 4 (2:06pm) Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m)

The first stop on the traditional path towards the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in four weeks, the Champagne Classic has drawn a typically smart field of two-year-olds. Leading local Ours To Keep (barrier 4) is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from a first-up fourth in the Listed Dalrello Stakes (1200m) on April 29th and is sure to lay a good account for himself. All Too Huiying (barrier 13) has steadily built to the task this time and should be in peak condition for the Champagne Classic, while Noble Hussler (barrier 5) and interstate raider Tangled (barrier 7) carry winning form into the race. Chris Waller has a big opinion of Tangled and has booked in-form hoop Kerrin McEvoy to take the ride on Saturday.

Tip: No. 6 Tangled – Each Way ($7.50/$2.50)

Race 5 (2:46pm) Listed Queensland Day Stakes (1350m)

And outstanding field of three-year-olds is set to contest the Listed Queensland Day Stakes, including Good Standing (barrier 8). Good Standing is a black type winner amongst strong company than this race and is has reportedly taken plenty of benefit from his first-up seventh in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) a fortnight ago. Morton’s Fork (barrier 7) is also a winner amongst Group 2 company and has relished a freshen-up after a lacklustre run in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) in early March. Locals Oink (barrier 12) and Crack Me Up (barrier 1) are both more than capable of winning this race if they bring their best form, while Canberra horse Ruthless Agent (barrier 10) appears primed for a big run.

Tip: No. 1 Good Standing ($5.50)

Race 6 (3:26pm) Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2000m)

Stampede (barrier 14) was an impressive winner of the Listed Wagga Gold Cup (2000m) last weekend and should prove extremely tough to beat in Race 6 on Doomben 10,000 day. The consistent entire has finished outside the first three only once in eight career starts and has the added bonus of Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle on Saturday. Amexed (barrier 4) has had two tune-up runs and can never be counted out at odds, while former Perth galloper Neverland (barrier 13) will have her second start for Darren Weir in the race and will relish a return to a ‘Good’ racing surface. Feltre (barrier 6) was a strong and consistent performer in races like this last winter and could receive the run of the race from barrier 6.

Tip: No. 2 Stampede ($3.90)

Race 7 (4:04pm) Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m)

An outstanding field of interstate and international runners will line up for the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 and almost every horse has claims on winning the race. Consistent sprinter Fell Swoop (barrier 14) has been charged with overcoming a wide draw, but is more than capable on his day and is primed for a maiden win at the highest level. Japonisme (barrier 1), Takedown (barrier 15) and Rebel Dane (barrier 10) are all Group 1 winners, but will require luck from their respective barriers. Defending champion Music Magnate is drawn ideally in barrier 7 and carries winning form into the Doomben 10,000, while Peter & Paul Snowden-trained stable mates Redzel (barrier 3) and Russian Revolution (barrier 5) are both primed for success. Three-year-old Derryn (barrier 6) will carry only 57kgs and is drawn well.

Tip: No. 6 Redzel – Each Way ($9/$2.60)

Race 8 (4:39pm) Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m)

Doomben 10,000 will draw to a close after a capacity field of three-year-olds contest the Rough Habit Plate. Country horse Realing (barrier 4) has drawn ideally into this field and is in the right form for a career-best win to date, while the Darren Weir-trained Mongolian Wolf is undoubtedly the class horse of the field and should prove extremely difficult to beat from the rails draw. Like many of his rivals, Veladerro (barrier 10) has been set for the Queensland Derby and the horse appears as though he is ready to peak in the Rough Habit Plate.

Tip: No. 3 Mongolian Wolf ($3.80)

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
