2008 Doomben Stakes

Click here to go back to the Australian Horse Racing Blog main page.

The 2008 Doomben Stakes is as always shaping up to be an absolutely fantastic event. The majority of this lot lined up against each other in the 2008 George Moore Stakes, which was won by 20-1 shot Friendly Embrace. It is worth noting that non of the more fancied runners, ran up to expectations these days.

Raced at Doomben over 1350m, the 2008 Doomben Stakes is a listed handicap race, worth a handy $128,000. At fixed odds of $26 (UNITAB) my pick for the 2008 Doomben Stakes has to be Gillian Heinrich trained Rasmussen. I know his form is not the strongest it has been at present, but we all know he is a classy type; and from the 6 gate with Michael Palmer aboard he should sit just off the pace, and I reckon he is every chance to topple his more fancied rivals in the Doomben Stakes.
