15/04/02 Adelaide Carnival Ready to Rumble
Leading trainers from around Australia and New Zealand are among those who have nominated promising members of their stable for the first day of the Adelaide Cup Carnival on Saturday.

Gai Waterhouse, John Hawkes, Colin Alderson, Colin Jillings, Tony McEvoy, Peter Moody, Graeme Rogerson, Bart Cummings, Michael Moroney, Craig Ritchie and Leon Macdonald are among a select group of trainers who have entered horses for the three feature events at Morphettville this Saturday.

The springboard race to the double Group One Oaks series, the $100,000 Lakewood Stud Stakes (1800m) has attracted 23 entries.

Among the Lakewood entries are NZ Oaks runner-up Sursum Corda, Group race performers Gold Lottey, Tully Thunder, Venus Was Her Name, Fortune Streak and Clothilde, recent Flemington winner Embraceable You and Saturday's Sydney placegetter Allez France.

The three-year-old event opened to colts and geldings (as well as fillies), the $100,000 Turfgrass Adelaide Port Adelaide Guineas has 25 entries. Aside from the fillies who are double engaged the race has attracted the Group performers Saturday Fever, Berezny, Solitary Soldier, Silver Baron and the talented kiwi (Our) Kazz.

Meanwhile, some promising youngsters are entered for the listed Yellow Cab Group Plate (formerly Oaklands Plate), a feature event for the two-year-olds. The race was won last year by Tully Thunder. Two of the more interesting runners could be two first starters from leading stables. Tony McEvoy has nominated the Fuji Kiseki filly Carnatic, while John Hawkes has entered Prickly (Strategic-Hedgehog) after a handy trial effort recently.
