Only 7 Eagle Farm Cup 2015 Nominations

Nominations for Saturday’s 2015 Eagle Farm Cup have been extended after only seven staying types were entered for the weight-for-age feature at Doomben Racecourse this weekend.

One of the key support races on the Queensland Oaks Day card in Brisbane on Saturday, the $250,000 Group 2 Pages Event Equipment Hire Eagle Farm Cup (2200m) entries will remain open until 9am (AEST) on Tuesday morning.

Of the seven currently in the mix, the intriguing nominee is Ben Currie’s three-year-old filly Col ‘N’ Lil.

An ultra-consistent daughter of Bradbury’s Luck, the Toowoomba-based filly has finished out of the money just three times during her 12-start career.

Her latest effort was only last Saturday at Doomben when the distant runner-up behind Gai Waterhouse’s runaway winner Bohemian Lily in the Group 2 The Roses (2020m).

The Roses is the traditional lead-up to the $500,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks, run this year over an amended 2200m on Saturday.

Bohemian Lily is current $5 second pick to win the Oaks through while The Roses runner-up Col ‘N’ Lil is rated a $41 outsider.

The move from Eagle Farm to Doomben means this year’s Queensland Oaks field is restricted to just the 15 starters and Col ‘N’ Lil is assured of a run sitting seventh on the order of entry.

She could however run instead against the open age and sex field in the Eagle Farm Cup, a decision to be made by Currie and connections later in the week.

The other female in the Eagle Farm Cup mix this year is then seven-year-old Epingle, Michael Kent’s veteran daughter of Pins having won the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2200m) on the Gold Coast two back before her ninth behind Pornichet in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) last start.

Sydney’s Chris Waller, who has an imposing winter record in the Sunshine State, meanwhile has a bumper four Eagle Farm Cup nominations led by veteran nine-year-old I’m Imposing.

The in-form Danehill Dancer gelding has run third in his three most recent runs including the Doomben Cup in elite company.

He also ran last Saturday and was brave in defeat when dropped back from 2000m to the mile to finish third to stablemate Strawberry Boy in the Group 3 Lord Mayor’s Cup (1600m).

Waller won last year’s Eagle Farm Cup with his Clodovil gelding Moriarty, the now seven-year-old back to defend his title in 2015.

Moriarty’s last win was in Perth back in December in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m).

He resumed with a disappointing 10th in the Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on April 25, where I’m Imposing ran third to the Team Hawkes-trained winner Leebaz, before an improved Doomben Cup fourth last start with Hugh Bowman in the saddle.

Waller’s two other current Eagle Farm Cup hopes are Doomben Cup sixth-placed Dansili eight-year-old Foreteller and his former Queensland Derby winner Hawkspur.

Rounding out the entries is then the local Robert Heathcote-trained Volkhere who ran second behind Pornichet in the Toowoomba Cup before a below par eighth beaten 11 lengths in the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) on May 16 at the Sunshine Coast.

Stay tuned to for all the latest on the Eagle Farm Cup 2015 including the final field and barriers out on Wednesday morning.
