Doomben’s track manager Ross Smith believes the current sunny weather in Brisbane can have the track back to well within the Soft range on Saturday.

Doomben has received 300mm of rain in March, including 239mm for the past week. It has not rained since Tuesday night.

Doomben raced with the rail in the 10m spot last Wednesday, where times recorded were the slowest in at least 25 years.

That section of the track “copped a hammering”, with the full meeting being completed. Smith is hoping to have that outside section mowed on Friday, but to this point it has still been too wet to get the mower on.

However, the inside 9.5m section (the rail is in the 0.5m position for Saturday’s meeting) is improving all the time.

“I was able to get a mower on the inside of the track and that inside 10m is improving,” Smith said.

“The outside where we raced last Wednesday is still well in the Heavy 10 range.

Smith suggested the inside section can get back to possibly a Soft 6 with the way the weather has been since Wednesday.

“We just need sunshine. The track will improve and it can improve quickly sometimes with the right weather,” he said.

“I’m quite comfortable the 10m pad we have will recover well by raceday.”
