Brisbane Best: Doomben – 5th November 2022

Strong ratings and good form suggest Hatchet lands in a highly winnable race at Doomben on Saturday.

Robert Heathcote's gelding kicked off this campaign with back-to-back wins at this track and has been racing consistently since then, placing over 6 3⁄4 f last start.

Hatchet looks suited coming back to 6 f as he has recorded two wins and two placings from four attempts and has never been out of the top-three here so has plenty in his favour.


A narrow second-up defeat will have Shamaton ready to peak and win later on the card.

Tony Gollan's four-year-old closed strongly to miss by just a head last start and the horse that beat him on that occasion – Orbisyn – has been scratched from Saturday's assignment to make his task easier.

Shamaton has a decent third-up record and Ben Thompson goes back aboard having won on the gelding before.



BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 2 #3 Hatchet @ $2.50

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 8 #8 Shamaton @ $3.30
