Brisbane Best - Doomben - July 28

Doomben will host nine races in the sunshine state on Saturday with plenty of big fields and competitive races.
Late in the day I am tipping Bergerac to cause and upset in the Benchmark 85 over 1 m bringing some very strong recent form with him.
Bluebrook lines up as the well deserved favourite however there is a log to like about the form of Bergerac and at the odds of $9 would prefer to be with him.
The Steve Tregea-trained runner has placed in two of his three outings this campaign and backs up quickly off his second placing to Natch over 6 3⁄4 f last week.
Bergerac has backed up in seven days twice previously, placing on both occasions and has also placed both times over this distance range.
Possessing a terrific record of six wins and three placings from 12 starts on good tracks, if Michael Murphy who claims 4lbs can put him in a good spot from barrier 10 he is every chance of winning this race today.
Bluebrook is clearly the one to beat having gotten the better of Fit For Purpose last start who since went on to win in listed company although I am not as convinced of his form on good tracks winning just one of six.
James Orman will roll forward again from barrier nine and take some catching but Bergerac should be finding the line strongly and at the odds happy to play him each way in this field.
In the following race I have found another at each way odds in Chapter And Verse who was our each way play two weeks ago when runner up at the Sunshine Coast over 7 f.
The Desleigh Forster-trained runner has been in outstanding form this campaign placing on all four occasions which includes a win three back before running second to The Bostonian over 6 3⁄4 f at this course two back.
Found one better last start in Sacred Rebel who lines up in this race today but I think the step up to 1 m will really suit the son of Rothesay who is yet to miss the placings from six career outings.
Likely to get enough speed up front and lightly raced he looks one that has scope for improvement and this looks a nice race for him at the $7 currently.
Good luck
Each way play 1: Race 8 #4 Bergerac @ $9.00
Each way play 2: Race 9 #6 Chapter And Verse @ $7.00
