Gollan Confident in Tattersall’s Mile Pair

Trainer Tony Gollan is set to launch a two-pronged attack in Saturday’s Listed Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) at Doomben and is confident that both Sheiswhatsheis and Pindan Pearl are ready to run well.

Sheiswhatsheis has been a strong and consistent performer this time and will carry winning form into the Tattersall’s Mile 2017, following an impressive and dominant six-length triumph in the Brett Whalley & Co Handicap (1640m) at Doomben a fortnight ago.

A proven performer at the distance of the feature race, Gollan told AAP that he is pleased with the mare’s condition and is hopeful that the Doomben surface is not too hard on Saturday afternoon.

“She has shown she can run 2000 metres with her third in the Toowoomba Cup. But she is very good at Doomben and around the 1600 metre mark,” Gollan said.

“Hopefully, we will get a late season Doomben surface with a bit of the sting out it.”

Sheiswhatsheis is amidst a long and busy preparation, spanning a total of fourteen starts since early October 2016.

A freshen-up following her competitive run for fourth in the Listed Tattersall’s Club Members’ Handicap (1600m) on May 13th clearly paid dividends when she returned for her recent dominant win.

Pindan Pearl was transferred to Gollan’s care in April this year and will likely be retired into a career as a broodmare following her appearance in the Tattersall’s Mile field.

The six-year-old has produced several smart performance for Gollan through her five starts in Brisbane without returning to winning, but the leading Brisbane trainer remains hopeful that she will break the drought this weekend.

“She is owned by Glenlogan Park who are very keen to get black-type with her before she goes to stud,” he said.

“She has had no luck in her races since coming from the south and she does to deserve to earn black-type.”

Saddled by Tony Martin in Sydney prior to transferring to Gollan’s stables, Pindan Pearl has secured five wins and seven minors through her thirty-four career starts so far.

The 2017 Tattersall’s Mile field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
