Brisbane Best: Doomben – 20th August 2022

A fully fit Get The Idea looks set to run out a strong mile and return to the winners’ list at Doomben on Saturday.

John Smerdon's gelding kicked off his campaign with a win at this course over 6 3⁄4 f before stepping to the mile and sticking on for second.

Get The Idea stays at that trip on Saturday and should be better prepared to run it out right as he hits his peak third up.

Ryan Maloney stays aboard and Get The Idea brings strong ratings that suggest he will be tough to beat.


Promising three-year-old Hang Five lines up earlier in the program and should relish a longer trip second up.

The gelding was only warming up late when a fresh third and should be better for that hitout.

He gets blinkers on and while he'll settle back the race multiple speed sources giving him every chance to finish over the top of his rivals.



BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 6 #4 Get The Idea @ $4.00

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 2 #1 Hang Five @ $2.70
