Brisbane Best - Doomben - June 9

Doomben will host eight competitive races on Saturday which includes the feature Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).
Unsure exactly what sort of track we will be racing on makes things a bit tougher but hopefully the wet weather stays away and the track will be in the soft range.
Impending got the job done for us two weeks ago in the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith and will be looking to defend his Stradbroke title after winning this race last year.
The James Cummings-trained runner has come back in outstanding order this campaign, winning two of his three starts and running second on the other occasion in the Doomben 10,000 and there is not reason he can’t prove too good once again.
Champagne Cuddles does get the weight swing and will jump from the inside barrier but at the current odds, Impending at $6 for a horse with his record and current form is too good to pass
Damian Browne should be able to settle Impending around midfield from barrier nine and the son of Lonhro loves it here at Doomben, winning three of his four outings and placing on the other occasion.
Impending does carry more weight then he did last year however he comes into this race in much better form and will give a big sight once again.
Earlier in the day Sheiswhatsheis looks well placed to continue her strong recent form when she lines up in the Wayne Wilson (1600m).
Winning in Listed company over this C/D two starts back, the Tony Gollan-trained runner then went on to finish runner up in the Lord Mayor’s Cup over 1 m last start.
From barrier 3, Jeff Lloyd will roll forward again on Sheiswhatsheis and despite there being a few others that will go forward she should be able to find the front without too much trouble.
Runs very well on wet tracks, undefeated from two previous outings on heavy going and was very good on the soft two starts back.
Sheiswhatsheis won’t find this any tougher to what she has been racing of late and she is a horse that leads and gives herself every chance of winning.
Good luck!
Bet of the day: Race 5 #1 Impending @ $6.00
Each way Play: Race 2 #14 Sheiswhatsheis @ $7.00
