Doomben Race 7: Queensland Derby 2200m

5/6/2015: There was nothing wrong with the win by Werther at wfa last Saturday when he soundly beat the likes of proven open age winners Moriarty and Epingle. You would think the drop back to his own age group would be a bonus. I certainly do. If you fancy Upham, and why shouldn’t you, the addition of Sadler’s Lake who beat Upham two runs ago is a formality. On the same basis you have to add Redoutable Heart with his good barrier draw and Chillin With Dylan as his finish last run was very strong. Add Magicool on his win beating open company horse Kenjorwood (he’s a contender for bet of the day at Moonee Valley) at Flemington. Place chances go to Jumbo Prince, Worthy Cause, Thermogenic, Harry and Spur On Gold.

PACE COMMENTS There are enough horses likely to lead or be on pace to suggest the pace will be solid going out of the straight. However, in most distances races of this type for relatively immature three year olds, the leaders would tend to drop anchor to assist their steeds to run the distance. This means the mid fielders need to be good enough to make up the ground plus run strong sectionals to win. This is going to be a race where, if you like a back marker or even mid fielder, you will have to take your chances.
