After the drama of Eagle Farm being blacked out for two hours on Melbourne Cup day, the return to Doomben has been almost an afterthought in racing discussions this week. But it is a good program chock full of interest and Doomben has been playing very fair. The rail is out 1.5 metres, so it usually favours frontrunners until about race three when backmarkers start coming into play. The forecast is for possible thunderstorms but Doomben is one of the best wet track surfaces in Australia.
