Brisbane Best: Doomben – 22nd April 2023

There will be a hint of Brisbane winter carnival in the air at Doomben on Saturday with three stakes races providing a taste of what is come over the next few months.

We're looking earlier on the card for our best bet though and it comes in the form of the Brian Smith-trained Alburq who chased well to miss by a nose here when resuming.

He races well second up and steps out to a distance where he won his lone attempt.

Boris Thornton stays aboard and has built a good association with him.

Improvement is likely and he doesn't have to progress a lot to beat these.


A good each way option comes up in the following event with Beaux Rumble.

Gillian Heinrich's gelding looks close to a win having gone under by narrow margins when placed in both starts at this track since a spell, the latest when beaten a neck over this distance.

He is building a strong record at the trip and won his lone third up attempt so could peak on Saturday.



BET OF THE DAY: Race 3 #5 Alburq @ $3.00

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 4 #10 Beaux Rumble @ $11.00
