Early Stradbroke Handicap favourites Our Boy Malachi and Srikandi will go head-to-head in Saturday’s $500,000 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben.
The race is far from a two-horse affair though, with proven Group 1 performers Trust In A Gust, Sacred Star, Scissor Kick and Bring Me The Maid among a host of other genuine chances.
Our Boy Malachi and Srikandi are equal favourites with www.tab.com.au at $4.40.
The feature race of the day is the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m), with Gai Waterhouse’s imported galloper Pornichet the $4.40 favourite off the back of an impressive win in the Toowoomba Cup last Saturday.
Leebaz, I’m Imposing, Silent Achiever and Gypsy Diamond are all well in commission, in a race that contains plenty of depth.
Red Belly will be providing a comprehensive set of ratings for this quality-laden Doomben meeting, along with our regular Sydney product.
