Brisbane Best: Doomben – February 9

A rise in distance can see capable mare Star Reflection return to the winner’s stall at Doomben on Saturday.

Star Reflection Horseform stands out as the in-form runner in the Cascade Handicap over 1350m.


The six-year-old is in a purple patch of form and caught the eye at Eagle Farm last start when she was slow out and settled near the rear of the field before working home well for a 1.3 length second.

Star Reflection was dropping back in trip to 1200m on that occasion and raced like a mare who would be much better suited over today’s journey with four of her seven career wins coming at this distance range.

She had won her previous two outings, charging home to score over 1400m at Gold Coast following another fast-finishing win at Randwick.

She again has the services of Jeff Lloyd - who was aboard for the first time last outing – and only has to hold her form to prove tough to beat in this line up.

Lightly-raced but talented gelding Kid Flash Horseform could be ready to show his best third up in the Cascade Benchmark 70 Handicap over 1050m.

The Toby Edmonds-trained four-year-old has returned in good order having finished runner up in his two runs this campaign, both at this course.

He ran into the smart Meet Mr Taylor last start and while he wasn’t in the same league he did keep fighting to the line well.

That followed a good resuming effort when he was just edged out over 1110m and his statistics at the course and distance are encouraging.

Apprentice Jag Guthmann-Chester goes on to give him a 2kg weight offset and his recent ratings suggest he is a strong each way chance.
