The Chris Waller stable can’t see the consistent Egg Tart having any problem stepping up in distance for the Group 1 $400,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) over 2000m at Morphettville on Saturday.

Egg Tart is the winner of her last four starts, three this preparation as she worked her way up through the classes and is stepping up to the 2000m of the Schweppes Oaks following her win over 1600m in a three year old fillies Handicap at Flemington on April 25.

“The step up from the mile to the 2000m won’t be a hindrance,” said Charlie Duckworth.

“She has been a model of consistency, doesn’t seem to know how to come second.”

“She has won her three starts this prep, gone from strength to strength.”

“She went to the beach this morning, she travelled down overnight, settling in at Morphettville.”

The Morphettville track was rated a soft 5 on Friday afternoon and Duckworth said that would suit Egg Tart perfectly.

“She loves the softer track, I think it is a soft 5,” Duckworth said.

Egg Tart drew barrier five in the original draw but could move in one spot at jump time if second emergency Lilymorn, who draw barrier two, fails to gain a start and will have Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.

“Good barrier in barrier five, Kerrin McEvoy aboard, there is no one riding better than him,” Duckworth said.

“He knows her well, won her maiden. Should be certainly a top three chance, even hard to beat in a Group 1.”

Egg Tart is on the second line of betting at $4.40 for the Schweppes Oaks at Ladbrokes.com.au behind the Darren Weir trained Kenedna who heads the market order at $3.20.

The Danny O’Brien trained Toffee Nose is the on other runner under the $10 mark at $6.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative
    and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

    First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

  10. Hung

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who was doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch because I discovered it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this subject here on your site.

    for the post. I will certainly return.

  13. regular podcast

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Good blog!

    Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I believe that you simply could do with some % to drive the message house a
    little bit, but other than that, that is wonderful blog.

    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  19. http://pceet075.cern.ch/

    May I simply say what a relief to find someone that actually understands what they are talking about on the internet.
    You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More and more people must read this
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you
    definitely have the gift.

  32. former chief operating

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
