David Lawlor’s last start winner Architect heads a smart field lining up at Doomben this Saturday in the 2013 Gold Edition Plate.
There are 15 three-year-olds accepted to run in this year’s edition of the $100,000 Listed Trade Coast Legal Gold Edition Plate (1200m), scheduled as Doomben Race 7 at 4:20pm (local).
Coming off a win at the track over 1010m from last Friday is Bel Esprit gelding Architect who will look to make it two from two this time in on Saturday.
They carried 59kg for their win last week and will appreciate coming back to 57kg under the set weights conditions when jumping from gate two with regular rider Andrew Sprinks in the saddle again.
There are four other last start winners in the mix on Saturday too including the Helen Page-trained Rudy who won over 1100m here in the wet on November 30.
The others are then Smart Huss who won on debut last start at Eagle Farm on November 27, the Dvid Kelly-trained Royal Scribe coming off a 1200m victory at the Gold Coast and the Tony Gollan-trained Gundy Spirit who won at Ipswich last week.
Also coming off some nice recent form are the likes of Into The Red (barrier three) for Kelso Wood who was runner-up to Rudy last start, the consistent Lonhro gelding Drum Line and lightly-raced Stravinsky filly Ice Cream Girl having just her third career start here after runs at Ipswich and the Sunshine Coast.
As for the interstate presence Victoria’s Peter Moody had that covered having accepted for the resuming Weinholt who suffered an early blow drawing the ‘visitor’s gate’ out in barrier 15.
Moody however has since confirmed the Stratum colt, who ran a distant 12th to Long John in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) last start, would be scratched from the Queensland clash.
