On paper, the Doomben 10,000 (1200m) looks a two horse race between Nature Strip and Osborne Bulls and that’s reflected in the Sportsbet.com.au market for the feature race this Saturday.
Nature Strip is fresh having come off a Group l win at Rosehill in the Galaxy (1100m). He has trialled well since and looks to be relaxing much better. He was as much as $3.50 all in but final field opened $1.90 and that was taken, now into $1.85 but is back to $2.00.
Back to that price because punters are forgiving when it comes to Osborne Bulls. He’s been beaten at his past four but has been supported again to win. He’s into $3.30 after opening $3.40.
Best specked at longer odds has clearly been Tactical Advantage ($26-$17), who was good first up at Hawkesbury.
