Brisbane Best: Doomben – 18th April 2020

Plenty of odds on favourites at Doomben on Saturday but we’ve gone looking for a bit more value.

One that fits that bill is the lightly-raced but progressive sprinter Scathing in the last of the day.

The Chris Munce-trained gelding has yet to mss a place and was strong when drawing away for a 1.8Lwin at Sunshine Coast first up.

He is proven at this course and doesn't look badly off at the weights after Justin Huxtable's 4lbs claim.

Scathing has plenty of upside and looks capable of going on with the job.


Solar Star should be close to her peak when she lines up one race earlier.

She produced a solid resuming effort when beaten 1.7L then improved her rating when runner up at Eagle Farm last start.

That run will have brought her to her peak as she has yet to miss a place third up and also has a good record at this distance.

If she can take another step forward she is an each way chance in a competitive race.



BET OF THE DAY: Race 9 #10 Scathing @ $3.70

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 8 #8 Solar Star @ $5.50
