There are currently 14 nominees for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap (1400m), set to run as one of the five black-type features on Sydney’s Chelmsford Stakes Day card on the weekend.

Headlining the entries with a handicap rating of 84 is the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Kimberley Star who is also nominated for the $175,000 Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) against a field of fellow fillies on the program.

A winner of three of her past four starts, the daughter of Star Witness was last seen running second to stablemate Speak Fondly in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at the track on August 22.

There are just three fillies among the Ming Dynasty Quality nominations this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival with Kimberley Star joined by the John O’Shea-trained Ottoman and Peter & Paul Snowden’s lightly-raced Tap This.

Exceed And Excel filly Ottoman won the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) in the wet at Randwick during the autumn and comes off a nice second in a Warwick Farm trial from August 14 won by subsequent Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) winner and stablemate Exosphere.

O’Shea also has Shards nominated in the Ming Dynasty, the in-form Medaglia D’Oro colt having won two of his four starts to date thanks to a first-up win in the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) at Randwick a fortnight ago.

Team Snowden’s Tap This meanwhile has had just three starts to date, most recently a second to Raphael’s Cat at Canterbury on August 19 over 1200m with Saturday to be her first black-type run if accepted.

Also coming via the Up & Coming Stakes along with the winner Shards are the Gary Nickson-trained runner-up Voilier and fourth placed Tatoosh for Newcastle’s Paul Perry who are both progeny of Beneteau.

Voilier was runner-up also in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) in February as a two-year-old before a fifth of five runners behind subsequent Golden Slipper champion Vancouver in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m).

His resuming run was on August 8 in the Listed Rosebud (1200m) when a length away second to Sebring Sun who he subsequently beat home in the Up & Coming Stakes where the duo finished second and third respectively.

Other notable Ming Dynasty Quality bound hopefuls include Godolphin’s Exceed And Excel gelding Haptic who ran third to Japonisme in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) last time out, the Chris Waller-trained Northern Meteor colt Metallic Crown coming off a breakthrough win at Warwick Farm over 1300m by three lengths and stablemate Vanbrugh.
