Pornichet jogged home to win the Toowoomba Cup (2150m) with a big weight last weekend and currently maintains status as sole occupant of the top line of 2015 Doomben Cup betting with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au at $4.20 odds.

Beginning his racing career aboard in France, the Vespone entire stamped his claims as one to watch over a two start campaign upon debuting in Australia in spring; running fourth in the Group 3 Yellowglen Stakes (1400m) before taking out the Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m).

Taking a few starts to find competitive condition this time, Pornichet returned to the winner’s circle in the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m) on March 289th before boxing on for a credible fifth in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 6th.

Likely to receive the run of the race from the ideal barrier 4, Pornichet has been confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Blake Shinn in the 2015 Doomben Cup.

Leebaz registered an impressive win in the key form-indicating Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) a fortnight ago and currently figures outright second in 2015 Doomben Cup betting markets at even $5 odds.

Posting seven wins and a further five minors through his 17 career starts so far, the Zabeel gelding finished second in the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) and won the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) on his way to second in the 2014 edition of the Doomben Cup.

Unable to figure over two spring starts, Leebaz placed a close second in the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) just one week prior to his Hollindale Stakes triumph but will need some luck in running on Saturday from barrier 11.

I’m Imposing has returned to racing in typically competitive form this time and currently rates as outright third favourite to win the 2015 Doomben Cup at generous $8 odds.

Winning the Listed Festival Stakes (1500m) and running second in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) most notably over summer, the Danehill Dancer gelding ran third in the Hollindale Stakes most recently and is sure to lay a great account for himself from barrier 6.

Four-time Group 1 champion Silent Achiever ($8.50) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at odds of less than $10 in 2015 Doomben Cup betting markets, while Chris Waller-trained stable mates Foreteller ($10) and Moriarty ($16) offer great value for money at double figure odds.
