Tony Gollan’s two mares Sheiswhatsheis and Pindan Pearl have drawn side by side in Saturday’s Listed $100,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) at Doomben.
Last start winner Sheiswhatsheis has drawn barrier four in the eleven horse field while Pindan Pearl, who finished second to her stablemate in a 1640m Handicap at Doomben on July 8, will jump from gate three.
Gollan has stuck with apprentice Alannah Fancourt for Sheiswhatsheis in the non-claiming Tattersall’s Mile after the pair combined for an all the way win at Doomben last start and the five year old mare should be able to find the front again easily from the good barrier draw.
“She is very good at Doomben and around the 1600 metre mark,” Gollan told AAP.
“Hopefully, we will get a late season Doomben surface with a bit of the sting out it.”
Doomben 10,000 winning jockey Jim Byrne has also retained the mount on Pindan Pearl who will meet Shewhatsheis 1.5kg better at the weights in the Tattersall’s Mile.
Pindan Pearl produced her best return since joining the Gollan stable when second to Shewhatsheis last start and the Testa Rossa mare will also be looking to enhance her stud value with a win or a placing in the Listed Tattersall’s Mile.
“She is owned by Glenlogan Park who are very keen to get black-type with her before she goes to stud,” Gollan said.
“She has had no luck in her races since coming from the south and she does to deserve to earn black-type.”
Trainer Matthew Dunn will also saddle up two runners in the Tattersall’s Mile, Chandan from barrier eight and Madame De Ban from barrier five.
Sunshine Coast trainer Natalie McCall has brought last start Rockhampton Cup winner Colour Charge back to the city and the six year old has ended up having to carry the top weight of 58kg after the weights were raised 3.5kg at acceptance time.
James Orman takes over from Adrian Coome on Colour Charge who has drawn barrier six in the Tattersall’s Mile.
Three year old Crack Me Up will be taking on the older horses in the Tattersall’s Mile after beating his own age group in the Group 3 $125,000 XXXX Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) at the Sunshine Coast on July 1.
Michael Cahill replaces Damian Browne on the Liam Birchely trained Crack Me Up who has drawn the outside barrier.
