Waterhouse’s 2013 Queensland Oaks Team

Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse is set to head to Saturday week’s Group 1 2013 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm with three strong chances.

Queenstown ($12), Vaquera ($15) and Porcellanus ($18) all feature towards the top of the bookmaker.com.au and all are in strong form.

Queenstown ran second last Saturday week at Rosehill while Vaquera was third in the Doomben Roses on the weekend.

The pair are the more experienced of Waterhouse’s trio but Porcellanus announced herself as a possible Oaks contender at Warwick Farm on Sunday.

After winning on debut at Newcastle on May 4, the daughter of High Chaparral stepped up to 1600m against the older horses and recorded a strong half-length win.

Waterhouse was thrilled with Sunday’s victory and has suggested the filly is showing maturity beyond her limited racing experience.

“The most impressive thing about yesterday’s win was the fact that the filly was racing against some older mares with only minimum weight relief,” Waterhouse wrote in her blog.

“Porcellanus has now impressed in two runs at distances that will eventually look well short of her best.”

“She has displayed heart, tenacity and a will to win in both her starts to date. These are tremendous attributes for such a well bred filly to be showing this early in her career and it all looks good going forward.”

The current Queensland Oaks favourite at $3.40 is Dear Demi who will race three times in three weeks.

The Clarry Conners-trained filly won the the Doomben Roses on Saturday and will back up this weekend against the boys in the Grand Prix Stakes.

A close second favourite in Oaks betting is Pat Carey’s Gondokoro who forced Dear Demi to a photo when flying home for second in The Roses.
