Amelie’s Star and her stablemates and Doomben contenders for Saturday Kenedna and Ulmann arrived on a flight from Melbourne this morning twenty-four hours after Weir’s other two Doomben Cup runners Articus and Star Exhibit landed in Brisbane.

Weir’s stable representative Jarrod McLean tweeted this morning that all his Doomben Cup runners are on the ground in Brisbane in fine order for Saturday.

“Amelia’s Star, Kenedna and Ulmann have arrived!!,” McLean tweeted.

Three year old filly Kenedna will run in the Group 2 $175,000 The Magic Millions Roses (2000m) while last start Wangoon Handicap winner Ulmann is an acceptor in the Group 3 $125,000 Taxibox BRC Sprint (1350m) with John Allen booked to ride both.

Amelie’s Star has drawn barrier ten in the original draw and will jump from eight if both emergencies fail to get a run when the Doomben Cup field is finalized to sixteen runners on Saturday morning.

Allen has been booked to ride Amelie’s Star who has been well supported in the betting for the Doomben Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au, firming in from $13 to be listed at $10 on Thursday morning.

The Testa Rossa mare has found form at the right time and heads to the Doomben Cup on the back of a win in the Group 2 $275,000 Hughes Limousines Queen Of The South Stakes (1600m) at Morphettville on May 6.

The prospect of another rain affected track will help the chances of all Weir’s three Doomben Cup runners with Articus and Amelie’s Star both wining on a heavy track while Star Exhibit is a winner on two occasions on a soft surface from two attempts.

The Bureau Of Meteorology has forecast rain for the southeast corner of Queensland in the lead up to the weekend and a wet track for the Doomben Cup will also enhance the chances of the Darren Beadman trained It’s Somewhat who currently sits at the top of the market order at $4.20, holding a slight advantage over Articus at $4.60 while Star Exhibit is marked as an $11 chance.

Brenton Avdulla takes the ride on Articus who has drawn barrier eight in the original draw while Blake Shinn has been booked to ride Star Exhibit who drew nicely at gate four.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?|
