bet365 Brisbane Best: Doomben – 19th August 2023

Punters can get their day off on the right note with progressive gelding Apophis in the opening event at Doomben on Saturday.

The lightly-raced five-year-old made it two from two this time in when he scored by 2.8 lengths over 5 f at Sunshine Coast, a performance that saw him unbeaten at this distance range.

Apophis produced a rating that puts him clear of these rivals and has scope for further development so can successfully take the step into city racing.

Two eye-catching placings since a spell will have Heleva Deel ready to strike later on the program.

Mark Currie's mare ran on into second last start at Eagle Farm over 7 f so the extra 1 f will suit.

Heleva Deel races well third up and won her only previous attempt at this track so can peak.



BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 1 #9 Apophis @ $2.70 with bet365*

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 4 #5 Heleva Deel @ $4.80 with bet365*

*Odds correct at 2:30pm 17/8/23
