Queensland Oaks 2012 Possibility for Poste Restante

Promising New Zealand filly Poste Restante is being targeted for the 2012 Queensland Oaks and gets her first chance to impress this weekend when lining up in the 2012 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) at Doomben.

The Howard Matthews-trained three-year-old has been in solid form of late, finishing fourth to Miss Artistic in the New Zealand Oaks before producing a runner-up effort in the Group 3 Manawatu Classic.

Matthews is hoping she can build on that form as soon as this weekend as he looks to secure a Queensland Oaks spot with the daughter of Postponed.

“Her run in the New Zealand Oaks was outstanding,” Mathews said.

“If she goes well she’ll go to The Roses and then the Queensland Oaks.”

From 12 career starts, the talented filly has won twice but placed on a another five occasions and has a worst finish of fifth in her last seven outings.

One thing that won’t be a problem this weekend is the distance, with her three most recent starts coming at 2000 metres or more.

The Group 3 $125,000 Rough Habit Plate will be Poste Restante’s first race on Australian soil and she will come up against a quality line up, with 21 horses today nominated to fill the 16 available spots.

Headlining the list of nominations is John Thompson-trained gelding Isopach who finished third in the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes and fourth in the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate in his two most recent starts.

Also included is local gelding Trump who is fresh off a win in the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic and Peter Moody-trained Brambles who ran fourth in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes and third in the Gunsynd Classic.

The race serves as key support act on the first day of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival which features the Group 1 BTC Cup.
