Doomben Race 8: UBET BTC Cup 1200m

08/05/2015: How can you go past Our Boy Malachi? He can lead, he loves the wet and he has won a staggering seventeen races from nineteen starts. Obviously Scissor Kick and Srikandi are serious challengers on their best form and I wouldn’t be writing off Bring The Maid as she was just beaten by Delectation who was just beaten by Scissor Kick in Sydney. However, can she give Our Boy Malachi a start and a beating?

Doomben Race 8. RaceTime: AEST 16:07, 09/05/2015

Front Runners (2) Hot Snitzel, (7) Our Boy Malachi, (13) A Time For War.
On Pacers (4) Scissor Kick, (5) Cape Kidnappers, (11) Srikandi.
Mid Fielders (3) Fontelina, (6) Temple Of Boom, (8) Sacred Star, (10) Bring Me The Maid, (14) El Roca, (15) Big Money.
Get Back (9) Knoydart, (12) Villa Verde, (16) Nostradamus.
PACE COMMENTS I have looked at this race several times and I see trouble for Srikandi. If she goes forward she will have to work and be a sitting shot in the straight because there will be some serious racehorses ready to challenge. If she misses the kick a fraction she will be caught wide and it will take a top effort for victory. Overall pace wise I see the pace being solid enough for the off pacers to be considered chances as there should be a fair bit of action early.
