Jetset Lad broke a long run of outs when he got the judge’s decision in a blanket finish in beating Sense Of Occasion and Epingle in the Group 2 $300,000 Evergreen Turf Brisbane Cup (2200m) at Doomben on June 6.

Trainer Brian Smith has kept the Elusive City seven year old in work and took him to the Gold Coast for a fifth to Addictive Habit in Listed $100,000 Southbank Insurance Brokers Open Handicap (1800m) on June 20.

Jetset Lad will be dropping back in distance but that shouldn’t worry the gelding who is looking to make it back to back wins in the Tattersall’s Mile after beating stablemate Kingdoms last year.

Smith has also nominated Kingdoms who will be going into the Tattersall’s Mile first up after not having been to the races since finishing sixth to Contributer in the Group 3 $150,000 David Jones Cup (2000m) at Caulfield last October.

At his previous start Kingdoms ran home strongly to fill third spot behind Opinion and Araldo in the Group 1 $400,000 McGrath Estate Agents Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on October 4.

Leading Brisbane trainer Tony Gollan has nominated two for the Tattersall’s Mile, last start winner Trakstar and four year old mare Tornado Miss.

Trakstar has been to the races on eight occasions since February in a long campaign and has visited the winner’s stall twice, including a last start win over Little Brown Horse and Addictive Habit in the $65,000 Troy Trevitt Homes Open (1600m) at the Sunshine Coast on July 4.

Tornado Miss has also been mixing her form and two starts back was beaten a nose by Frespanol over this course and distance in the Listed $100,000 Boag’s Premium Spear Chief Handicap on May 30 followed by a sixth to Addictive Habit in the Southbank Insurance Brokers Open Handicap at the Gold Coast.

The Kelly Doughty trained Little Brown Horse is also among the entries for Saturday and will be out to turn the tables on Trakstar after getting beaten a neck at the Sunshine Coast.

Little Brown Horse was last in the winner’s stall four starts back when she won the $65,000 Parklands Tavern Handicap (1400m) for the fillies and mares at the Sunshine Coast on May 16.

Track specialist Epic, also among the nominations, has shown his liking for Doomben with six wins on the track, including five over this course and distance but has been out of the winner’s list since last September when he won an Open Handicap over 1650m at Doomben.
