Egg Tart showed a glimpse of her three year old form last start with a fighting second to her stablemate Comin’ Through in the Group 1 $650,000 Hardy Brothers Doomben Cup (2000m) at Doomben on May 19 and bookies at Ladbrokes.com.au have reacted by opening her at the short price of $1.60.

Egg Tart was one of the star staying fillies during her three year old season and was able to claim an Oaks double with victories in the 2017 Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) at Morphettville and the 2017 Group 1 $500,000 Treasury Brisbane Queensland Oaks (2200m) at Doomben.

Waller said that the Doomben Cup was the first time he had been able to get Egg Tart out to a suitable distance since her Queensland Oaks win and the 2200m of the P.J. O’Shea Stakes will suit her even better.

“It was the first time this campaign she had got out to somewhere near the 2200 metres of the Queensland Oaks,” Waller told AAP.

Kiwi jockey Leith Innes is back aboard Egg Tart who will jump from barrier eight in the P.J. O’Shea Stakes field that has been reduced to nine runners with the early scratching of Marabel.

On the second line of betting at $6.50 is the Darren Weir trained Tradesman who has drawn in close at barrier two with Dean Yendall in the saddle.

Tradesman was a winner two starts back over 1700m at Warrnambool on May 1 before finishing ninth in the Doomben Cup.

The Gold Coast trained Man Of His Word is the third pick at $8.50 while the Weir trained Gallic Chieftain is the only other runner under the $10 mark at $9.50.

Man Of His Word produced his best recent run two starts back when third to Oregon’s Day in the Group 2 $358,000 Attwood Marshall A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on May 5 but was then outclassed when tenth in the Doomben Cup.

Michael Cahill takes over from Brad Stewart on the Bruce Hill trained five year old who will jump from barrier six.

Gallic Chieftain was also a winner for Weir at the Warrnambool Carnival in taking out the Listed $200,000 Warrnambool Cup (2350m) but then failed to fire when tenth in the Group 3 $125,000 Channel Seven Premier’s Cup (2200m) at Doomben on May 26.
