Final Thoughts

Buffering is out to avenge last years 3rd place showing in this very race and the loss to Famous Seamus at the BTC Cup. Buffering is under a lot of pressure to produce a Group 1 win in this 2014 Doomben 10,000. However, the competition is strong and this race is far from an easy one to predict. Buffering has finished in the money 76% of the time, but as a punter you should observe that Platelet and Knoydart have placed in the money over 80% of the time. This race is going to go down to the wire and it could be a close one. Until we meet again may your punting be better and remember to always be a good sport.
