Caulfield trainer Stuart Webb is considering paying the $18,000 late entry fee for Ana Royale to take her place in the Queensland Derby after the filly had no luck last Saturday when eighth to Egg Tart in the Group 1 $500,000 Treasury Brisbane Queensland Oaks (2200m) at Doomben.

“She has had an easy run so I am contemplating paying a late fee and backing up next Saturday,” Webb told RSN’s Racing Pulse.

“If she is bouncing around the place and eating all of her feed I think we probably will be running.”

Ana Royale was prominent in the stewards’ report for the Queensland Oaks which stated that she was slow to begin and had to be steadied near the 700m and was also held up for a run rounding the home turn and then did not obtain clear running until the 200m.

Webb said that Anne Royale got caught up behind some of the tiring fillies and went to the line virtually unextended.

“In those sort of races there are always some horses that don’t get the trip and they are going to be coming back on your lap,” Webb said.

“Ana Royale just needs a slow run into the race so it didn’t suit her at all.”

Webb has reported that Ana Royale has pulled up in terrific order and he has until final acceptance time on Wednesday morning to decide if her connections will pay the $18,000 late entry fee.

“Came through the run terrific. After the race you would not have known that she had been around, she was really unextended,” Webb said.

“She is getting in the roll and rolling four or five times and when she gets up she is eating all of her feed. She is very sound.”

“If she would have shown any signs at all if any of that wasn’t right she would be straight in the paddock because I think we have a nice filly going forward.”

Mark Zahra will get the ride again and has been aboard the Anacheeva filly for her last three starts, which includes a third to Egg Tart in the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) at Morphettville on May 6 and a win in the Group 3 $175,000 SA Fillies Classic (2500m) at Morphettville on May 20.
