Tony Gollan’s Mode Plate winning filly Secret Saga is one of the headline nominations taken for the Gold Edition Plate 2015 at Doomben Racecourse this weekend as the Brisbane Summer Racing Carnival continues.

A total of 18 three-year-olds make up the early entries for this year’s $100,000 Listed Gold Edition Plate (1200m), four of which come off a last start victory including Real Saga filly Secret Saga from the top Brisbane stables of Gollan.

She has won her past two on the trot to take her overall record to five wins from nine starts and her Doomben track record to five from eight.

Last time out she scored a black-type success with a narrow victory in the Listed Mode Plate (1200m) from a wide barrier 11 of 13 draw and she sees the same track and distance this weekend if accepted into the Gold Edition Plate field.

Gollan has three nominees this season with Secret Saga joined by Most Important and My Girl Hayley.

I Am Invincible colt Most Important has won three from nine to date including over the 1200m here back in early August, but is out to improve on a sixth to Dram Of Red over 1100m at Doomben on November 28.

Lightly-raced Bradbury’s Luck filly My Girl Hayley will be second-up this weekend after her third in the same lead-up race beaten only a length after a hard run from gate 11 of 12.

Winner of the three-years-old handicap that produces Gollan’s other two, Dram Of Red, is another Gold Edition Plate nominee who has won two from three at Doomben to date.

Second behind Secret Saga in the Mode Plate and the run before over 1050m at Doomben meanwhile was the Bradley Smith-trained Ferocity filly La Dolce Vita, the in-form grey nominated for the Gold Edition also where she’ll be out to turn the tables on Gollan’s filly.

Mode Plate third placegetter Madotti is another Gold Edition Plate hopeful for this weekend, the Matthew Dunn-trained daughter of Falvelon shooting for just her second win at start number 11 should she run.

Along with Secret Saga another flyer coming off back-to-back wins is the Chris Munce-trained Stick With Me.

The Duporth filly has saluted twice over 1000m at the Sunshine Coast in November and is back to Brisbane for the first time since her distant sixth in the Listed Lancaster Stakes (1200m) in early June.

She has had three previous runs over Saturday’s distance without a top three finish so will be out to prove she can handle further than 1000m on the weekend.

Other notable entries include Rex Lipp’s Group 2 performed In His Stride, nicely bred Sebring filly Typing racing for the first time since an unplaced effort behind Press Statement in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) during the winter and this year’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Le Chef after his first win since the $2 million victory on the Gold Coast in January.
