Waller filly has a taste for winning
PREMIER trainer Chris Waller has given EGG TART a great foundation to win tomorrow’s Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) at Doomben.
The Sebring filly goes into the race winning her past four starts, the latest in the SAJC Schweppes Oaks over 2000m on May 6.
Her latest gallop on the course proper was on May 23 with stablemate Richard Of Yorke, running 1400m in 1:41.60, last 600m in 39.40 and final 200m in 12.47 with the markers out 14m.
That was great staying work as they started from the 2000m chute and came off track in fantastic order.
He unplaced effort in a 1050m barrier trial at Rosehill last Friday was terrific as she finished off like a Group 1 filly and went to Brisbane in top class shape and ready to win on the weekend.
DEPLOY is another Rosehill horse heading to Doomben tomorrow and the Gerald Ryan trained 4yo has a very good hope of winning the Group 2 Moreton Cup (1200m).
He has improved since his tidy first-up second to Quatronic in the Ortensia Stakes at Scone on May 13.
The son of Fastnet Rock ran the best the morning gallop on Tuesday pairing up with Girl Sunday over 800m in 52.43 and last 400m in 24.80 on a ‘dead’ inside grass with the markers out 14m.
The Waller prepared former Kiwi NEW UNIVERSE can make it a winning hat-trick at Rosehill tomorrow in the 1200m Benchmark 79.
This impressive son of Darci Brahama looked a treat before working on the inside grass on a dead surface on Tuesday with the markers out 14m.
He galloped over 1000m in 1:10.70, last 600m in 40 and last 200m in 13 when well held.
DAGNY, another member of the Waller juggernaut, can continue to progress through the grades in stylish fashion with another win in Race 3 over 1500m at Rosehill tomorrow.
He finished the race off really well to win last start taking his tally four wins from five starts since coming Victoria.
Tomorrow’s small field should suit and the step from 1400m to 1500m is also in his favour.
He worked over 800m on Tuesday on a dead inside grass track, recording 56.10 with the markers out 14m. Dual acceptor GIRL SUN
DAY is ready to fire after two unplaced runs back from a 17 week spell.
Failing on the Gold Coast first-up, Girl Sunday led from a wide barrier over 1200m when 4th to the flying Bonny O’Reilly beaten under a length at Rosehill on May 20.
The Ryan trained mare will be just about winning Race 6 at Rosehill tomorrow if her workout on Tuesday with Deploy is a true guide.
See times above Deploy. She is also third emergency in race 8.
