In a wide betting race, Trakstar and Epic are both currently at $6 with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of the topweight Jetset Lad at $7.50 and Little Brown Horse, Tornado Miss and Avalanches all at $8.

Trakstar had the better of Epic when they last meet at the Sunshine Coast on July when the Gollan trained five year beat Little Brown Horse in the $65,000 Troy Trevitt Homes Handicap (1600m) with Epic a well beaten six and a half lengths sixth.

Schweida is willing to forget Epic’s Sunshine Coast failure and has faith in him returning to the i600m at Doomben where he has saluted on five previous occasions.

“He couldn’t pick up and sprint with the others which is most unlike him,” Schweida told Racing Queensland News.

“It was a soft track last run and he handles it but he’s better on top of the ground.

“It was more of a sticky surface as it dried out during the day.”

“He’s got barrier one and has a great record at Doomben. He’s only ever run two bad races in his life.”

“One was last preparation and I still don’t know what happened then and last run.

“He’ll run well and I’m as confident as I could be after his last run.”

Trakstar’s is also a multiple winner over this course and distance with three wins to is credit but a wide barrier drew could go against his chances.

Little Brown Horse’s last start second to Trakstar was her best effort since winning at the Sunshine Coast four starts back over 1400m but is yet to win beyond that distance.

Jetset Lad is looking to win back to back Tattersall’s Mile after winning last’s year’s version with 54kg but has jumped sharply up in the weights after winning the Group 2 $300,000 Evergreen Turf Brisbane Cup (2200m) at Doomben on June 6 aand has been lumped with 58.5kg on Saturday.

The Brian Smith trained galloper has had a run since for a fifth to Addictive Habit in the Listed $100,000 Southbank Insurance Brokers Handicap (1800m) at the Gold Coast on June 20.

  2. website design

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all
    my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
