A total of nineteen sprinters have been nominated for the first leg of the Brisbane Summer Series at Doomben which includes the Listed $175,000 Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) on December 12 and the Listed $175,000 Bernborough Handicap (1600m) a week later.

Temple Of Boom was the winner of the 2012 Group 1 $350,000 Galaxy (1100m) at Randwick but his only win since was in the Group 2 $175,000 Victory Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm during the 2014 Brisbane Winter Carnival.

The nine year old is resuming following a short after finishing fourteenth to Boban in the Group 1 $400,000 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 29.

Gollan has also nominated Casual Choice, Didntcostaalot, Fontelina. Gundy Spirit and Whiskey Allround.

Fontelina is also returning from a Melbourne Spring Carnival campaign which saw him run ninth to Ecalir Choice in the Group 2 $300,000 tabcomau Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on October 31 but Gollan is prepared to dismiss that run.

“I’m not all that sure the Flemington sprint form will hold up because the way the track played and the amount of interference in races,” Gollan told AAP.

Gollan just hasn’t finalised his George Moore Stakes runners but is hoping to have four to boost his Summer resukts.

“I hope to have four runners,” Gollan said.

“I really hope to have a big summer this year. We were a bit away from things in the winter and then we were quiet during the spring.”

“But I had planned to have a big summer and Traveston Girl got us off on the right leg. The George Moore has a long history of being won by good horses.”

Co-trainers Peter and Paul Snowden will be hoping the skies will remain clear for the weekend for That’s A Good Idea who was a scratching from the Listed $100,000 Keith Noud Handicap (1200m) at Doomben on November 14 because of the rain affected track.

The Flying Spur six year old hasn’t raced since finishing second to Terravista in the Listed $150,000 City Tattersalls Club Lightning (1100m) at Randwick on October 17 but has finished second in two recent barrier trials at Randwick on October 30 and at Warwick Farm on November 19.

Trainer Robert Heathcote has nominated Saluter for the George Moore Stakes and the six year old will head to Doomben on Saturday with a last start third in the Ketih Noud Handicap under his belt, finishing behind Steel Zip and George Moore entrant Top Tone.

The Kelly Schweida trained Miss Cover Girl is back in Brisbane following a third to Nayeli in the Group 3 $125,000 City Tattersalls Club Nivison (1200m) at Randwick on October 17 and is also among the nominations for the George Moore Stakes.
