The 2017 Doomben Cup Day results will be updated throughout the afternoon at horseracing.com.au and we are set for a big day of racing.

Wet weather looked as though it would plague the Doomben Cup meeting, but the sun is shining in Brisbane today and there has been no rain this morning.

The Doomben track will still be in the heavy range, but it is unlikely to be the bottomless heavy 10 track that was expected earlier in the week.

All eyes will be focused on the Doomben Cup this afternoon and it really is set to be one of the most competitive races of the 2017 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Doncaster Mile winner It’s Somewhat is currently a narrow favourites, but there has been money for German import Articus, Darren Weir-trained Amelie’s Star and Queen Elizabeth Stakes placegetter Sense Of Occasion.

Keep coming back to horseracing.com.au all afternoon and we will keep you updated with all the results throughout Doomben Cup Day.

Pardoe finished over the top of Skate To Paris to take out the 2017 Oxlade Stakes at Doomben this afternoon.

Skate To Paris hit the front at the 200 metre mark and looked like the winner, but Pardoe kept finding the line and hit the front in the shadows of the post.

Pardoe has now recorded three wins on the trot and impressed jockey Michael Cahill with the way that he got through the heavy track.

The Virginian stormed down the outside to return to the races with an excellent victory in the 2017 Chief De Beers at Doomben this afternoon.

The Virginian has had injury issues since he finished a surprise third in the Stradbroke Handicap last year and the the 1050 metres was expected to be too slick for horse, but he showed an explosive turn-of-foot to record the win.

Trainer Toby Edmonds was delighted to see The Virginian make a winning return to the races and he confirmed that another tilt at the Stradbroke Handicap was on the agenda.

  • 1st – The Virginian
  • 2nd – Highly Geared

Glyn Schofield settled Tactical Advantage just behind the speed in the early stages of the race, but it was All Over Bosanova that shot to the front at the top of the front.

All Over Bosanova kept finding and looked as though he would hung on for the win, but Schofield timed his run to perfection to secure another win for Tactical Advantage.

Bidii Babe stormed down the outside to score a thrilling win in 2017 Bright Shadow at Doomben this afternoon.

Dee Nine Elle kicked clear at the top of the straight and she looked as though she was going to be tough to catch, but she clearly tired with 150 metres left to run.

Untamed Diamond hit the front at the 50 metre mark, but it was a flying Bidii Babe out wide that hit the front at the right time to steal victory.

  • 1st – Bidii Babe
  • 2nd – Untamed Diamond

Kenedna fought-off Oklahoma Girl to record a brave win in the 2017 The Roses at Doomben this afternoon.

John Allen allowed Kenedna to drift back in the early stages of The Roses and she looked as though she may have trouble finding a run when she settled four horses back on the fence.

She eventually found clear running down the outside and wound up nicely down the outside before she held-off Oklahoma Girl for the win.

  • 1st – Kenedna
  • 2nd – Oklahoma Girl
  • 3rd – Perilous Love

Sense Of Occasion stormed down the outside of the track to take out the 2017 Doomben Cup in Brisbane this afternoon.

There was plenty of speed in the early stages of the race as Auvray, It’s Somewhat and Single Gaze all pressed forward, which set up the race for the backmakers.

At the 100 metre mark there was still five winning chances, but it was Sense Of Occasion that showed the superior turn-of-foot and he flew home to score a maiden Group 1 win.

  • 1st – Sense Of Occasion
  • 2nd – Star Exhibit
  • 3rd – Rudy

Jungle Edge led from start to finish to win the 2017 BRC Sprint at Doomben this afternoon.

  • 1st – Jungle Edge
  • 2nd – High Midnight
  • 3rd – Ulmann
