Chris Nelson’s Doomben Best Bets

RACE 2 No.4 Dealing’s Done

Lightly raced colt who registered successive placings before breaking through for his maiden victory at the Gold Coast last start. Involved in a spirited battle with two rivals at the 200m he knuckled down strongly over the final 100m coming clear to the line. That suggests the additional 250m will suit and although yet to place on damp ground he’s by a very good wet track sire.

RACE 4 No.9 Vaccine

Last start maiden winner who takes a decent step up in grade however I’m confident she can handle it and is well worth an each-way play. She pulled clear late on that occasion suggesting the additional 150m suits and although yet to race on damp ground she’s by a noted wet track sire and has a barrier trial placing (beaten 0.9L) behind Mazu on a soft 7 surface.

RACE 9 No.2 Charmmebaby

Apart from her first up run at Scone (big odds, unsuited) she’s raced very well this prep winning and placing at Eagle Farm before game from a wide gate same track in the Group 1 Tiara last start. She maps to gain a good run and keep in mind she also raced well here over the summer months winning and placing in Listed company on heavy/soft ground.
