Doomben Race 6: BMW JJ Atkins 1600m

5/6/2015: Each year this race has several runners attempting the distance for the first time which makes the race somewhat of a raffle. Press Statement has been rushed north by C Waller after his fighting win last Saturday. The pace won’t be as hectic as last start over the shorter course and he should acquit himself admirably. Look To The Stars and Blueberry Hill came away from the field in the Sires Produce and if the pace is good (I am a bit worried it won’t be) they will be contenders. Feast For Eyes is another C Waller traveler, with Hong Kong star Z Purton taking the ride, who won with authority last start albeit in weaker company. He slots into the classic lightly raced improver we punters find difficult to assess at times. P Moody has rocketed Bassett to Queensland for this race off just one race start but even though the distance is a query the form around Kinglike isn’t and the win was quite strong. Place chances to Counterattack, Cylinder Beach, Pepperano and Typing.

Front Runners (1) Feast For Eyes,(2) Bassett (10) Press Statement.

PACE COMMENTS From barrier ten I would be surprised if Press Statement didn't go forward with Bassett and Feast For Eyes. There shouldn't be too much jostling for position up front as Pepperano and Ashlee Marie will slot in fairly easily too. I don't see this race as hectic early which will make it harder for Counterattack, Blueberry Hill and Look To The Stars. Just be wary about that trio as, pace wise, they don't hold all the cards they would if they were on pacers.
