One of the major support acts on the Doomben 10,000 Day card in Brisbane this weekend, the $250,000 Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) has attracted 17 early entries.

The set weights event is the last traditional lead-up to the $600,000 Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) over the mile at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Stradbroke Day, June 11.

Sizzling (2012) was the last juvenile to complete the BRC Sires’ Produce – JJ Atkins double, but last year the Sires’ winner Look To The Stars went on to run a competitive third to Press Statement in the Group 1.

Favourite in all-in JJ Atkins betting at Ladbrokes.com.au this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival is Souchez ($3.60) who also heads the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes nominations for Saturday.

The John O’Shea-trained Lonrho colt is best known for his Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) victory in Sydney in March.

He returned on May 14 at Doomben and ran a very close third to Winning Rupert, defeated just a quarter-length in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m).

The other best out of the Champagne Classic entered for the rematch in the BRC Sires’ Produce this winter is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained runner-up Attention.

A nicely-bred son of Stratum, the colt improved on his last start 11th when beating home just one other runner in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) in Sydney on April 2 for his close second in the Brisbane race last time out.

Attention, who won Rosehill’s Group 3 Baillieu Handicap (1400m) in late March was beaten just a neck as a $21 roughie in the Champagne Classic and will be improving on that getting up to 1350m on the weekend.

Team Snowden have also nominated their in-form Smart Missile colt Jericho for the JJ Atkins lead-up, the youngster coming off a close second to Archives in last weekend’s Listed Hampden Stakes (1200m) at Doomben.

Following Souchez in futures JJ Atkins betting meanwhile and entered for the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is the Bjorn Baker-trained Cadogan ($6.50), another Smart Missile two-year-old who comes off a 1.8 length victory over 1400m at Randwick on May 18.

Also coming off a last start win and nominated for the Group 2 on Saturday are the likes of the Scone Inglis Challenge champion Barbass, the Tony Pike-trained Kiwi raider Sacred Elixir who won his down under debut over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast on May 11 and Royal Tithe.

Prepared on the Sunny Coast by John Zielke, Show A Heart filly Royal Tithe has won three of her past four starts including the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast in early May.

Kelly Schweida’s Sebring gelding Oink is the other most notable Ken Russell graduate entered for the BRC Sires’, the youngster running second in the Group 3 at the Gold Coast.

See below for the full BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes 2016 nominations, the final field and barriers due for release on Wednesday.
