Waller will saddle up seven runners in the sixteen horse Queensland Oaks field with Egg Tart the ruling favourite at $3.10 at

Stablemate Dawn Wall sits on the second line of betting at $6 with the Darren Weir trained Kenedna ahead of SA Fillies Classic winner Ana Royale at $8 and the Waller trained Oklahoma Girl at $9.

Egg Tart comes into barrier nine after the field was finalized this morning with the elimination of the three emergencies while Dawn Wall moves into fifteen.

Waller agrees with the bookies that Egg Tart is the better fancied of the two fillies and is giving the Sebring filly a great chance to make it six wins in a row and add another Group 1 win to her record following her victory in the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) at Morphettville on May 6.

“With the barrier draw, for sure (the market is right),” Waller told Racing HQ Saturday.

“She has got a slightly awkward draw herself but she certainly has a much better draw than Dawn Wall.”

Waller has a high opinion of the widely travelled Egg Tart and can see her being a force over the next twelve months.

“She is a lovely athletic filly. That winning sense is there and when things go to plan she can win by a big space too,” Waller said.

“We are very excited about her chances over the next twelve months or so.”

Waller is not concerned about Egg Tart having four weeks in between runs and said that she has arrived at the Gold Coast in great order considering she has raced in three different starts over the last two months.

“The four weeks in between runs was mapped out after she won the Oaks in Adelaide because of all the travelling she was doing,” Waller said.

“She started in Sydney of course, went to Melbourne and raced, went to Adelaide, raced. Came back from Adelaide to Melbourne, Melbourne to Sydney, then Sydney to Queensland.”

“Each trip takes half a day each so you have to factor in a few gaps in between, a few training gallops so hence the reason for the four weeks.”

“Had a nice trial last Friday so we are very happy with the way she has arrived on the Gold Coast and then up to Brisbane today.”

Waller’s other four Queensland Oaks runner are at long odds in the betting, Incivcibella at $26, Cross Stitch and Baysa at $31 and Kirini is one of the outsiders of the field at $51.
