Queensland Derby Hopefuls Included in 2013 Gunsynd Classic Nominations

A number of emerging gallopers will get the chance to press their claims for a 2013 Queensland Derby berth at Doomben this Saturday in the Group 3 2013 Gunsynd Classic (1600m).

Last year’s Queensland Derby winner Brambles was third in the Gunsynd Classic and it is a common lead-up to the Winter Carnival’s major three-year-old event.

Included in nominations is Lindsay Gough’s in-form gelding It’s On The Pocket who has won his last four starts.

Unbeaten in his current preparation, It’s On The Pocket has progressed from a Sunshine Coast maiden winner to taking out the Listed Queensland Day Plate last start.

Second in that race was Carmora who was previously unbeaten in four starts and will get the chance to exact revenge this weekend.

Also in form is Less Ross-trained gelding Mishani Stealth who has won four of nine career starts and was a strong first-up winner at Eagle Farm on April 10.

Queensland’s leading trainer Robert Heathcote always has a strong presence in Queensland’s big races and has two of his charges entered for the Gunsynd Classic.

Bewhatyouwannabe is coming off a maiden victory on April 1 while Written Above All will be out to bounce back from a last-start 12th in the Queensland Day Plate.

Tony Gollan is considered to be one of Queensland’s best trainers and he also has two runners with Queensland Day Plate third Riddle Me This and Stratum gelding Trakstar.

Warwick Farm trainer Steve Englebrecht has entered Lucky Lucky Lucky while head Darley trainer Peter Snowden has nominated Proverb.
