BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!! Shillelagh starting $5 equal favourite for the Doomben Cup. One win from twelve goes this season she is a good mare but needs luck on her side.  

WHY IS IT SO!!! Queensland Oaks being run at Doomben again. Eagle Farm is up and running and racing beautifully, there are a few fillies that were huge chances if the race was there but at Doomben not so much.

PEAR SHAPED!!!  Jamaican Rain this week her race went !!! from the get go, she sat 3 wide on the speed in the Group 1 Goodwood. To her credit she finished 7th 4.5L from the winner, it was her first start for quite a while, she could even turn up here in Brisbane.

OBSERVATIONS; All athletes have form lapses and jockeys are no different. One top Sydney jockey has been that far out of form over the last 6 months that we here at Horsebuck$ will not select his mounts on top. This was an observation we ran last but this top jock turned it around on Saturday with a double.

Niccanova race 7 Doomben on Saturday would have tested Tyzone to the max if he had clear running. Along side the winner on the corner James Orman elected to go through the pack whilst the winner had clear running out wide and won easy whilst the other horse ran up the backside of everything in the straight and had a soft run. Certainly food for thought.
