Message : (Nominated for Brisbane Race 9, Brisbane Cup) She finished 2nd in the NZ Oaks so the 2400m shouldn’t be a problem. She does however need a very firm track. Last start, she got caught three deep so she went forward but that’s not her normal racing pattern.

Message : (Nominated for Brisbane Race 7, Queensland Derby) The draw will count against him as he always races on pace.
Horse : Ambitious Champion
Message : (Nominated for Brisbane Race 7, Queensland Derby) 2nd emergency. The chance to get into the field is pretty slim but the horse has certainly done a treat since he’s been here.
Horse : Diademe
Message : (Nominated for Brisbane Race 2, Strawberry Road Hcp) She was very impressive finishing 3rd last start. The mile on Saturday suits her well and she has trained on well since last start. The big track at Eagle Farm should also suit her.
From Aaron Wheadon (John Bary Stable)
Horse : Survived
Message : (Nominated for Brisbane Race 7, Queensland Derby) Very happy with the way he’s working. He’s eating well and he’s come through the run well from the other week. And will keep him ticking along until next week. 5 weeks between runs would not be a problem. And he has won from firm track to Heavy track.
