The money is rolling in for the airborne Peter & Paul Snowden-trained three-year-old mazu to extend his winning streak with a Group 1 victory over the older horses in the 2022 Dooms 10,000 on Saturday.
The first elite level of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnivalthis year’s Group 1 $1 million Dooms 10,000 (1200m) has been moved to Eagle Farm Racecourse due to ongoing heavy rainfall in southeastern Queensland.
It’s a quality field of winter sprinters competing and the latest Doomben 10,000 opportunities online on Ladbrokes.com.au have Maurice gelding Mazu for $3.20 to win.
Signed in port eight with Sam Clipperton to ride, the in-form youngster has won his past five starts, most recently the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) at Royal Randwick on April 9.
He was good there on a Heavy (10) track with Clipperton on board and won a subsequent test to keep him fit for his Group 1 test on Saturday.
With wet track form, Mazu is a deserved favorite looking to become the first three-year-old Doomben 10,000 winner since the co-Snowden-trained Epaulette in 2013.
Co-trainer Peter Snowden also primed the smart mare Beaded for her 2011 win, taking his third Doomben 10,000 trophy, and first in partnership with his son Paul, in 2017 with subsequent double The Everest hero Redzel.
Along with the clear favorite, Team Snowden also saddled up $61 roughie Signore Fox from gate nine this year Doomben 10,000 field†
Outside of Mazu, only two other runners are also under double digits in Doomben 10,000 bets this season with the James Cummings-trained Kementary ($7) and market mover Count De Rupee ($9) considered the dangers.
Drawn a treat in gate three for Nash Rawiller, Godolphin tough Kementari has his 41st career starts on Saturday.
He has had four runs so far on the Eagle Farm course for just one second place but was good in Sydney, last being fresh winning the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) in mid-April.
Two-of-two on tough tracks, Kementari is not without claims with conditions that fit again Saturday.
Cummings and Godolphin also saddle up the consistent Dawn Approach foal Paulele for $12.
He was third on Nature Strip two back in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) before his third to Mazu in the Arrowfield, both on tough tracks, and has been kept fit with a Hawkesbury class on May 3.
Paulele missed the kick in the Arrowfield and suffered from interference in the TJ so having a clearer run is more than doable at a price here.
Graaf De Rupee is another last starting winner, the Robert & Luke Price-trained Real Impact four-year-old who narrowly won the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) on the track and two weeks ago at a distance.
That followed his devastating second place finish on Kementari in the Hall Mark Stakes and he is the early Doomben 10,000 market mover since the location change from Doomben to Eagle Farm.
Count De Rupee, winner of $2.6 million in prize money, has a 50% success rate over the six furlongs and is racing well enough to challenge here again.
Wide resume in port $15, Mark Waller‘s Kiwi trained mare entriviere is next best at betting at $10.
The daughter of Tavistock has a lot of form down under, including her close fourth just 1.64 lengths from Icebath last October in the inaugural $2 million The Invitation (1400m) at Randwick.
She returned home on New Years Day to win the Group 1 NZ Railway Stakes (1200m) and has had two consecutive Group 1 runs across the ditch with Jamie Richards.
With a similar quote, gamblers can find the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Generation ($11) presenting fit fourth and ready to fire.
The three-year-old Snitzel colt is four-of-eight so far and was last seen finishing a close fourth behind September Run in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at The Valley on March 25th.
He has yet to officially race on a Heavy track, but won a Rosehill hit on a Heavy (8) on April 29 at over 1030m for the Brisbane debut.
At more generous opportunities, the value tokens chasing an upset include the Tony Gollan-trained Magic Millions Sprint winning mare isotope ($12), Rob Heathcotea‘s former JJ Atkins winner Rothfire ($14) second in gate seven and Danny WilliamsGroup 1 The Galaxy winning mudlark Shelby Sixty Six ($34).
The 2022 Dooms 10,000 is set to run as Eagle Farm Race 8 at 4:02 PM (AEST) on Saturday’s nine race map in Brisbane with full markets from Ladbrokes.com.au available here†
