Rasen Set To Lift In Doomben Cup


Punters are behind former Japanese stayer Satono Rasen claiming a Group 1 in tomorrow’s Doomben Cup.

Satono Rasen ($5.50 into $5.00), one of six runners for champion trainer Chris Waller, is the best supported runner, but the Mick Price trained Oregon’s Day ($4.00) heads betting.

Waller has half the field in the Doomben Cup and punters have singled out Satono Rasen as his best chance. The champion trainer will also saddle Comin’ Through ($9.00), Tom Melbourne ($9.50), One Foot In Heaven ($46), Life Less Ordinary ($11), Egg Tart $11.

Doomben Cup betting.

Satono Rasen has a couple of Australian runs behind him now. The six-year-old finished strongly for fourth behind Oregan’s Day in the Hollindale Stakes (1800m) last start, which should have him cherry ripe for this. The $4.60 second favourite, Ambitious, is also a Japanese import, now with Anthony Freedman and has received solid support.

At Morphettville hometown hero Viddora ($10 into $7.50) is the best supported runner in The Goodwood. Vega Magic has also had plenty if support, but is an easing favourite ($2.70 out to $3.10) for the Group 1 sprint.
