The transfer of the Group 1 $500,000 Treasury Brisbane Queensland Oaks (2200m) from Eagle Farm to Doomben will suit Kenedna according to trainer Darren Weir.

Racing Queensland ordered the shift of the Queensland Oaks Race Day to Doomben after the Eagle Farm track, where it was originally scheduled to be run, was considered unsuitable to host another Group 1 day following last Saturday’s meeting on a substandard surface.

Kenedna is a last start winner at Doomben when she took out the Group 2 $175,000 The Magic Millions Roses over 2000m narrowly from Queensland Oaks rival Oklahoma Girl and Weir said that having that experience on the track will go a long way to helping her collect a Group 1 win this week.

“It probably helps her I would say because she’s won there and instead of it being 2400m, it’s 2200m which is not a massive step,” Weir told racing.com.

“The only little concern I would have is that Johnny (Allen) said that she never really handled the track at all the other day, even though she won.

“But providing it’s not too wet I’m looking at it as a plus for her.”

Kenedna would have to be one of the toughest fillies going around, having only missed a place once from eight starts since January which includes four wins.

The Not A Single Doubt filly was a Group 3 winner of the $150,000 The Vanity (1400m) at Flemington on February 18 and then went on two starts later to win the Listed $110,000 See South Australia Laelia Stakes (1600m) at Morphettville on April 8.

At her next run Kenedna was in the winner’s stall again after beating With A Bit Of Dash in the Group 3 $120,000 Schweppervescence Stakes (Registered as Auraria Stakes) (1800m) at Morphettville on April 22 before running second to Egg Tart in the Group 1 $400,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) at Morphettville on May 6 prior to heading to Brisbane.

Weir will also saddle up Parthesia in the Queensland Oaks and the Raise The Flag filly would probably have appreciated the 2400m at Eagle Farm better after dropping back from the 2500m of the Group 3 $175,000 SA Fillies Classic (2500m) at Morphettville on May 20 when second to Ana Royale who will be in the same predicament in the Queensland Oaks.

“Probably a negative for our other filly Parthesia who is going up there,” Weir said.

“For Parthesia, the testing ground and the 2400m at Eagle Farm would’ve been ideal for her to try and run a place.”

Parthesia’s last three runs have been over 2400m or further and prior to her running second in the SA Fillies Classic, was third three starts back over 2400m in the Listed $150,000 Ladbrokes Galilee Series Final at Caulfield on April 8 followed by a second over 2800m in the Listed $200,000 VRC St Leger on April 25.

Kenedna is well in commission in the betting for the Queensland Oaks at $4.80 at Ladbrokes.com.au behind Egg Tart at $3.20 and Ana Royale at $4.40 while Parthesia is listed as a $16 chance.

Market order for the Queensland Oaks at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3.20 Egg Tart, $4.40 Ana Royale, $4.80 Kenedna, $8 Oaklahoma Girl, $8.50 Dawn Wall, $15 Baysa, $16 Parthesia, Shenandoah, $17 Bianca Cara, $21 Perilous Love, Pygmy, $26 Invincibella, Mia Rosa, $41 Cross Stitch, $67 Kirini, Lipstick Lover, Namib, Sharp Speedo, $101 Isn’t She Elegant, Miabla.
