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.
