4:38pm Doomben Race 8
#7 Bohemian Boom – $3.30 with TopSport
Went back and forth on this one a bit but when it comes down to it this horse comes out of a very good race where he was far from disgraced and finds a much weaker affair here. Last start was in a Saturday 3YO Open race where he settled up behind the leader in a solidly run race. Couldn’t go with the superior horses late but battled on well enough to only be beaten 2L. Jetty and Boom Spender have much more than 2L on the rest of this field and he finished within a length of Super Gorgeous who I think would be a short priced favourite here too. Prior to that run was a good winner at the Sunshine Coast when wide throughout Draws barrier 4 and I think should be able to hold the rail and settle leaders back which I’m expecting to be a big advantage today. Gets Leah Kilner jumping on for Ronnie Stewart which is a positive switch in my book and if he can run up to what he has shown the last 2 starts then I expect him to be right in the finish.
