Due to run as Toowoomba Race 7 at 3:57pm (AEDT) as the second of two black-types on the card, this year’s $150,000 Listed Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood Handicap (1200m) attracted an above capacity field.

Two of the original starters are early scratchings with the 59kg top weigh Casual Choice (14) and Whiskey Allround (19) both prepared by Group 1 winning trainer Tony Gollan.

That has paved the way for the first two of the five emergencies to gain a start in the 14-runner field.

Leading the updated Weetwood Handicap odds at at a short $2.10 and firming for the win is Coolring who is set to jump from barrier one with Jeff Lloyd booked for the ride.

Warwick Farm’s Bjorn Baker prepares the Sebring five-year-old whose last start produced a third to the 2016 Stradbroke Handicap favourite Malaguerra, a runner in Sydney’s Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) on Saturday, in the Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 26.

Coolring is yet to race in Queensland and goes up from 54kg to 56.5kg, but is still the one to beat according to the bookies with the money coming for the top fancy.

There are currently just two other single figure hopes despite the size of the field with Jumbo Prince ($10 into $7.50) and Pillar Of Creation ($8 out to $9).

Local horseman Michael Nolan prepares Outback Prince four-year-old Jumbo Prince, the stallion first-up having last been seen running ninth to Tinto in the Magic Millions Trophy (1800m) at the Gold Coast in early January.

He has a gun record at his home track of three wins and a third from five runs ahead of his return on the weekend, and is also well-proven over the 1200m with three wins and a second from four runs over the distance.

Pillar Of Creation is the new Weetwood Handicap top weight with 57kg, the Tony Sears-trained local God’s Own six-year-old shooting for his third win on the trot.

He comes off back-to-back Doomben wins over 1350m, the latest carrying 56.5kg on March 5.

At more generous odds but still with genuine claims for a win are Sears’ other runner Hard Stride ($10) after his first win since February last year, the Liam Birchely-trained seven-year-old Rock Royalty ($11) dropping two kilos down to 55.5kg from last start and Le Val ($12) for the Gold Coast’s Noel Doyle.

A five-year-old son of Snitzel, Le Val sees Toowoomba for the first time and comes off a close fourth behind Casual Choice in the Gold Coast Stakes (1200m) at his home track on March 12.

He won a subsequent trial, also at home, on March 29 and looks set for a big run on the weekend even from the wide barrier (13).
