Due to run as Race 3 at 1:40pm (local) this year’s $115,000 Group 3 Queen’s Cup (2500m) has drawn a final field of 13 staying types, the top-weight of which is Darryl Dodson’s six-year-old Finiguerra with 59kg out to improve on a disappointing 11th in the Warrnambool Cup at the start of the month.

Following Finiguerra in the Queen’s Cup field and weights is then Michael Moroney’s Victorian visitor Muirfield with 56kg and barrier 12, the Warrnambool Cup runner-up after their first win since March last year.

There are also three last start winners in the mix for the Queen’s Cup trophy, the highest-rated of those being Phillip Stokes’ local Al Samer mare Elldami who has drawn the inside alley, the four-year-old coming off a win over the mile and a half (2400m) at the track last month.

The other last start winners are then Mujadale (barrier four) after their third on the trot and New Zeland-bred Princess Deauville with the far outside barrier to overcome.

Other notable hopes then include Darren Weir’s Warrnambool Cup third placed Reset six-year-old Shiny Buttons, the David Hayes-trained Motivado and Cranbourne-based mare Twin Soul.
