The Natalie McCall trained Colour Change is a four times winner over the Tattersall’s Mile distance, including his last start victory in the $100,000 Rockhampton Cup at Callaghan Park on June 24, but is yet to win on the tight turning Doomben track.

A good blood count from Colour Change during the week has boosted McCall’s confidence for the six year old who will now carry the top weight of 58kg after the weights were raise 3.5kg at acceptance time.

“After he won the Rocky Cup we had him nominated for races in Sydney and Doomben but his blood count wasn’t quite right so I gave him a bit more time,” McCall said.

“It wasn’t serious and he never missed any work.

“I wasn’t happy with his blood after the trip to Rocky and then back. So I thought a freshen-up wouldn’t do him any harm.”

“I have been happy with him since and this is an ideal race for him.”

“The Tatt’s Mile has always been his goal and he should run well but getting around Doomben is my biggest worry with him.

“We were super confident he’d win the Rocky Cup as his third run in is always his best.”

James Orman takes over the reins from Adrian Coome on Colour Change who has drawn barrier six in the eleven horse Tattersall’s Mile field.

The Tony Gollan trained Sheiswhatsheis also has an impressive mile record with four wins from seven starts at the distance all at Doomben, including her last start all the way win in an Open Handicap on July 8.

Apprentice Alannah Fancourt takes the ride again on Sheiswhatsheis but won’t be able to use her 1.5kg allowance in the non-claiming Tattersall’s Mile.

Liam Birchley’s three year old Crack Me Up will be taking on the older horses in the Tattersall’s Mile after being the best of his age in winning the Group 3 $125,000 XXXX Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) at the Sunshine Coast on July 1 but will have to overcome the outside barrier with Michael Cahill in the saddle.

Crack Me Up is holding onto favouritism at $2.35 at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Tattersall’s Mile just ahead of Sheiswhatsheis at $2.80 while Colour Change is marked as a $10 chance alongside of the John Meagher trained Cruising Speed.
