|Exciting Encosta de Lago filly Lashed will have the chance to
establish herself as a star galloper when she goes head to head with the boom juvenile
Lovely Jubly in the Group One $504,000 The TJ Smith (1600m) at Eagle Farm on Monday.
A member of the huge Graeme Rogerson stable, Lashed took the
Adelaide Cup Carnival by storm when she won two of the feature juvenile events at Victoria
Park and Morphettville.
In both wins the Patrick Hogan owned youngster missed the
start and came from well behind before clearing away from easy victories.
One of Melbourne's top hoops Stephen Baster will travel to
Brisbane to ride the filly on Monday after riding the same filly to victory in Adelaide.
"She's an exciting filly," Baster said.
"Something right out of the box," he added.
Baster described the
filly's most recent win in the Group Three SA Sires' Produce Stakes (1600m) at
Morphettville as "freakish."
Lovely Jubly who galloped to her first Group One win in the
Queensland Sires' Produce Stakes last start is one of the country's leading juveniles and
she will be a hard horse to beat considering the two are only separated by one kilogram in
The two are considered the two main chances in Monday's The
TJ Smith, Brisbane's feature event for two-year-olds late in the season.
Also in the field are the Michael Moroney trained recent
stakes winner Tequila Knowledge and Lovely Jubly's last start runner-up Sir Breakfast.
Lovely Jubly will be expected to go forward in Monday's
race after drawing the outside barrier in the field of eleven. Lashed drew gate nine.
