Chris Nelson’s Doomben Best Bets

RACE 6 No.8 Oscar Zulu

Absolutely zero luck first up at Gosford when just coming into the race at the right time, looking all set to challenge he ran into a dead end which quickly put an end to his chances. Overall his form has been quite consistent for some time now and he’s won twice on heavy ground. From a good gate settling around midfield he’s right in this.

RACE 7 No.1 Zaaki

Similar to two weeks ago on Hollindale Stakes Day he looks the logical best on what could be a very wet and difficult afternoon’s racing. He was very fresh and full of himself getting the job done narrowly that day and will be far better placed with the run under his belt. He bolted this race in last year and I’d suggest he’ll be lengths better once again.

RACE 8 No.11 Smirk

Just get the feeling this filly from the Chris Waller yard is hitting her straps at the right time. Only lightly raced she prevailed narrowly at Canterbury two back before improving plenty to clock in third at the Gold Coast in the Listed Bracelet. A repeat of that or further improvement suggests she’s going to be very hard to beat.
