Russian Revolution ($3.10) has returned to racing in excellent condition this time and remains the outright favourite in 2017 Doomben 10,000 betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Music Magnate and Redzel; currently sharing the second line at generous $7 quotes.

Will Russian Revolution justify favouritism and win the 2017 Doomben 10,000, or will one of his talented rivals post an upset?

1st

Redzel ($7)

Redzel is absolutely flying this preparation and the horse is arguably faced with his best chance of a maiden Group 1 win when he takes his place in the Doomben 10,000 field. Resuming for second in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m), the Snitzel colt placed second to Russian Revolution in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) before returning to winning form in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) last time out.

2nd

Fell Swoop ($8.50)

Fell Swoop is unlucky not to have posted a maiden win at the highest level and should be right in the finish of the Doomben 10,000 on Saturday. The Not A Single Doubt gelding took a couple of runs to find form this time, but worked to the line well to finish third in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) on Day 1 of The Championships and has reportedly relished a freshen-up.

3rd

Derryn ($11)

Derryn has returned to racing in outstanding form this season and is a serious lightweight chance in the Doomben 10,000. The Hinchinbrook colt returned to winning form in the Listed Darby Munro Stakes (1200m) on March 18th and finished mid-pack in the TJ Smith Stakes, before savaging the lien to win the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint (1200m) last time out on April 8th.
