A bumper 108 three-year-old fillies make up the early nominees for the $500,000 Group 1 Treasury Casino & Hotel Queensland Oaks (2400m), due to run at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday June 4.

The first of the elite levels set to take place at the recently upgraded track, the Oaks was won last year by subsequent superstar Winx (2015).

Among those looking to be the next big thing with a Queensland Oaks success is Ambience who narrowly missed out on winning the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) in Sydney on April 9 when a half-length off Sofia Rosa as a $41 roughie in betting.

The other best out of the ATC Oaks nominated for the Queensland edition next month is the Anthony Cummings-trained third placegetter Believe.

Cummings has also nominated for his progressive daughter of High Chaparral Top Of My List who was last seen running second to current Queensland Oaks favourite Imposing Lass over 1500m at Rosehill on April 23.

That was the third straight win by Bjorn Baker’s Makfi filly Imposing Lass who leads all-in Queensland Oaks odds at some bookmakers around the country after her nice display.

Also high up those futures markets is New Zealand visitor Romantic Maid for Roger James, the Chris Waller-trained Chandana and Falkenberg for Peter & Paul Snowden.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden won the 2009 Queensland Oaks with Purple and has three entries for the 2016 edition led by More Than Ready filly Falkenberg, a winner of two of her six starts to date.

The other Team Snowden-trained nominees are Vinery Stud Stakes fourth placed Self Esteem and Tap This.

Sydney’s Clarry Conners has prepared two previous Queensland Oaks winners with Zagalia (2003) and Allow (2006).

He has two entries this season with the out-of-form Dawnie Perfect who won the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) last Caulfield Cup Day in Melbourne and the very promising Queen Of Wands.

A daughter of Not A Single Doubt, Queen Of Wands won back-to-back non-Black Type races in March before a third to He’s Our Rokkii in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on April 2.

She was last seen racing in the Listed Princess Stakes (1600m) at the Sunshine Coast on April 23 where she was defeated only a neck by the winner Look To The Stars in a nice Queensland Carnival kick-off.

David Vandyke’s Princess Stakes winning daughter of I Am Invincible is also among the Queensland Oaks entries this year to go all the way to the top.

Other notable Oaks hopes include the Robert Smerdon-trained Commands filly Dulveton who ran fifth to Jamkea in Melbourne’s Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) in the spring and dual Gold Coast winner Lyricist for Toby Edmonds.

NZ Oaks winner Fanatic is also being kept safe in early markets, but is a doubtful final acceptor for the clash down under.

The 2016 Queensland Oaks first acceptances close at 9:00am (AEST) on May 25 so stay tuned.
