Capacity field for Doomben Cup

There is a capacity field of 16, plus two emergencies, for the $700,000, Group 1 WFA Hardy Brothers Jewellers Doomben Cup (2000m) at Doomben on Saturday with two favoured runners drawing out.

The Waller stable have five acceptances for the race including Youngstar who has drawn barrier 11. The four-year-old High Chaparral mare, who this time last year won the Group 1 Queensland Oaks over 2200m at the same course, comes to the race off a fifth placing to stablemate Life Less Ordinary (IRE) in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes over 1800m at the Gold Coast.

That race on May 4th was on a Heavy 10 track which Youngstar struggles to handle. Saturday’s track should be in the Good range with a rating of a Good 4 on Wednesday.

Life Less Ordinary has barrier 10 with another stablemate Savvy Coup (NZ) also out wide in 13.

Gwenda Markwell’s Archedemus backs up from last week’s win in the listed Member’s Handicap over 1600m, the five-year-old Lope de Vega gelding’s second win in succession after taking the Group 3 Hawkesbury Cup over 1600m on April 27th.

On both occasions he added to Tom Melbourne’s liking for second placings. Archedemus heads into new territory on Saturday attempting 2000m for the first time. Corey Brown rides with barrier 17.

The Doomben Cup is Race 8 on the nine race programme at 3.40pm.

The rail will be out 2m for the entire circuit on Saturday.

Brisbane’s weather this week remains warm with showers forecast for each day of 0mm-2mm possible for Thursday and Friday and 0mm-3mm for Saturday. Saturday’s temperature’s are 16 – 25c.
