DOOMBEN CUP DAY TIPS AND BEST BETS

This week we’re looking at Pro Group Racings tips and best bets for Doomben Cup day as we see packed fields head to Doomben Racecourse as the Winter Carnival continues in the Sunshine State.

Tips and Best Bets For Doomben Cup Day

Betting on the Doomben Cup is the main draw of todays racecards and with the Doomben track set to play a Soft 4 we’re judging the run of our Queensland tips on that going.


Doomben Race 3 - Socialist - $3.20

A race for the 2yo Fillies here with Socialist looking set to go close. Was impressive in her last win at Canterbury beating some of these runners by over a length on a heavy track. 

Looks to have fitness on her side and should have won two starts back when interference arguably cost her the race that day finishing second. 

Can see many others challenging here and the bigger track will give Socialist every chance. 

Back Socialist to win. 

Doomben Race 5 - Yamazaki - $6.50

A lot to like about her win at the Gold Coast last time out in the Listed Grade Silk Stocking over 1400m. Racing was on a slow track that day and she came flying home to win by 2.25 lengths over the rest of the field.

If the race is run in the same fashion, which it maps to do, then Yamazaki is likely to have to much pace late and should be in the finish.

Back Yamazki each way.

Doomben Race 7 - Sir Dragonet - $3.70

If you look at Doomben tips through the week it's been a toss up between Mugatoo, Zaaki and Sir Dragonet. We like Sir Dragonet to win the Doomben Cup.

His form lines, as pointed out by Glen Boss earlier in the week, are much stronger than Zaaki’s and with the money coming for him after those comments it seems like the punters agree. 

Sir Dragonet draws well and the ground is set to suit. 

Back Sir Dragonet to win. 


As always the boys take you through an action packed day of racing as well as a preview of the Rosehill and Flemington. For their thoughts and best bets across all Metro racing check out the latest episode of Show Us Your Tips.
