Echo Gal will find this much easier against the fillies and mares than her last start sixth to Spill The Beans in last Saturday’s Group 2 $175,000 MIRVAC QTC Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm.

That was Echo Gal’s second run back this preparation and followed her first up tenth to Malaguerra in the Group 1 $500,000 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben on May 14.

The Darren Weir trained Scarlet Billows is also among the twenty-one nominations for the Gai Waterhouse Classic and will also find this company much easier than then her last start eighth to Music Magnate in the Group 1 $750,000 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10000 (1350m) at Doomben on May 28.

Scarlet Billows has a tendency to mix her form but was a winner three starts in the $150,000 VOBIS Gold Distaff (1400m) at Caulfield on April 16.

Premiership winning trainer Tony Gollan has entered two for the Gai Waterhouse Classic, three year old filly Dee Nine Elle and smart mare Tina Melina.

Tina Melina is fitter for two runs back from a spell for a ninth to Eloping in the Listed $150,000 Better Than Ready Silk Stocking (1200m) at the Gold Coast on May 7 followed by a fourth to Palazzo Pubblico in the Listed $100,000 City Property Services Bright Shadow Handicap (1200m) at Doomben on May 21.

While Dee Nine Elle has been racing consistently in weaker company with a third two starts back in a 1350m three year old Handicap at Doomben on April 30 followed by a second to Themis in a three year old fillies BenchMark 72 Handicap at Randwick on May 28.
