WINNO'S WINNERS: DOOMBEN, 23 JANUARY, 2021

By Darren Winningham | Thursday, January 21, 2021

DOOMBEN RACES – SATURDAY 23 JANUARY 2021

This weekend we are back at DOOMBEN with the track rated “SOFT”. The rail is in the true position for the entire circuit. The track should dry out with some warm weather forecast over the next few days.

NB: As these selections were made prior to race-day please check for any changes to track conditions and for any scratchings on the day.

Race 1

The two-year old’s start off the day.

Open field here with many form lines that are difficult to line up.

Mishani Enchanted (10) went around in the lead up to the Magic Millions in the race won by Swift Witness. Forgive the run – was too far back could not make ground. Look for the Les Ross Racing runner to be full of confidence this weekend from barrier 1 with Chris Caserta to ride.

Jackson On Time (2) is from the Scott Morrisey stables on the Gold Coast. Amazing debut run on the Gold Coast when beaten by Finance Tycoon. Jim Byrne remains aboard – I would have had him on top, but barrier 14 may be a drama.

Rubiquitous (5), a nice Rubick gelding from the Chris Anderson yards, won on debut at the Sunshine Coast. Nice effort and looks like he is progressive but this field will test him. Brad Stewart is in the saddle.

A big watch on Hamlet Von Snitzel (7) from the Natalie McCall yards on the Sunshine Coast. He has won both of his trials at home. There are some big wraps on him and, making his debut here in town, Natalie must have a big opinion. Tiffani Brooker has ridden him to success in both trials and remains on him for his first race start. She will be looking for her first metro win in a while – GOOD LUCK TIFFANI!

Mystic Gem (11) from the Kris Lees Racing team has some big wraps on her as well - makes her debut here and has a good barrier. The unraced two could easily salute here.

Watch for any market moves in the lead up to this race.

Selections:

10 – Mishani Enchanted
2 – Jackson On Time
5 – Rubiquitous
3 – Portobello Road
Rough chance – (7) Hamlet Von Snitzel and (11) Mystic Gem

Race 2

A small field of only seven runners here over 1600 metres.

Kris Lees Racing and Andrew Mallyon combine here with Ligulate (2) who won two starts ago over the track and distance. Looks a safe bet.

Love Express (7) is the logical danger trained by Gary Duncan and to be ridden by Robbie Fradd. He was beaten a fortnight ago at the Gold Coast by Yao Dash and battled on well – just the mile may test this runner.

Zofonic Dancer (5), trained by Robert Heathcote and with Taylor Marshall aboard, looks the likely leader and at $34 could run them into the ground – do not overlook this runner.

Selections:

2 – Ligulate
7 – Love Express
5 – Zofonic Dancer
3 – Prometheus

Race 3

Another mile race.

Chris Munce trains Smart Meteor (7) with Larry Cassidy to ride. I just think he is well placed here and, with three weeks between runs, he will go well.

Hail Manhattan (5), a Peter & Will Hulbert trained runner, has been going good without much luck. Probably deserved a win next to his name in any of his past three starts but has been unlucky. Michael Rodd will be looking to change his luck here this weekend.

Barney’s Law (2) is a Mark Currie runner. Bobby El-Issa is aboard here. Bobby has been riding sensationally in the past month. This runner is looking for a hat trick of wins for the stable.

Terrius (4) looks for three in a row as well. Sears Racing have elected to claim three kilograms with Leah Kilner to ride. This runner will lead. Out in front a low weight – maybe too hard to run down.

Steve Tregea’s runner Champagne Aunty (12) is a rough chance.

Selections:

7 – Smart Meteor
5 – Hail Manhattan
2 – Barney’s Law
4 – Terrius
Rough chance – (12) Champagne Aunty
