Doomben 1600m specialist Sheiswhatsheis is among the nominations for the Listed $100,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) at Doomben on Saturday.
Sheiswhatsheis has won six of her eight victories over the Doomben Mile including a win four starts back in the Listed $100,000 Members’ Handicap on May 12 when ridden by premiership leading jockey Jeff Lloyd.
Lloyd has been aboard the Tony Gollan trained mare for her next three starts and will partner the six year old again in the Tattersall’s Mile coming off a last start fifth to Grande Rosso in the Listed $100,000 G.H. Mumm (1615m) at Doomben on June 23.
Gollan and Lloyd will team up again with Sheiswhatsheis who is one of eighteen horses nominated for the Tattersall’s Mile.
“Sheiswhatsheis won the Listed Members Cup at the start of the carnival. She does like the Doomben 1600 metres and the Tatt’s race is ideal for her,” Gollan told AAP.
“Jeff has won on her and his style of letting her roll along suits.”
As the 2017 – 2018 racing season draws to a close, Gollan is in line to claim his fifth Brisbane Metropolitan trainers’ premiership while Lloyd, who has announced his imminent retirement for the saddle, will be crowned Brisbane’s leading jockey for the third consecutive year.
Gollan is currently sitting on 86 metropolitan winners for the season, way ahead of his nearest rival Toby Edmonds on 55, while Lloyd has ridden more than a hundred metropolitan winners for the second season in a row and currently sits on 106 winners with Jim Byrne in second spot with 75.
Rival Eagle Farm trainer Robert Heathcote has three horses among the Tattersall’s Mile nominations with last start winners Ruling Dynasty and No Annamossity as well as the seven year old Lordag.
Ruling Dynasty is racing in great form and will be chasing a hat trick after wins at the Sunshine Coast and at Doomben while No Annamossity has been working his way up through the classes with two wins over 1350m at Doomben from his last three starts.
Trainer Kris Lees has nominated the in-form restricted class mare Princess Posh while Chris Waller has entered Dagny, Religify and Vassal.
