Consistent duo KEEP YOUR ROSES and CARTLAND will be looking to break-through for their first wins this preparation at today's midweek Metropolitan meeting at Doomben.

KEEP YOUR ROSES drops back in grade from a Saturday Metropolitan Class 2 (1300m) won by stablemate ZOUCARA at Eagle Farm on Saturday, February 23.

Three-year-old filly CARTLAND finished with her third second placing this preparation at the Gold Coast last start and is chasing a deserved Maiden victory today.

Trainer Chris Munce previews their chances below:

Doomben: Brisbane Racing Club@Doomben Wednesday 06, March 2019 | View race field

Race 1 - 1:18PM BLOKES DAY OUT RACEDAY Maiden Handicap (1200 METRES)
ColoursNo. / Horse Name / BarrierJockeyWeight
6. Cartland (4)Mark Du Plessis   55.5kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "She's very fit now and ran the 1200m out quite strongly the other day, it just took one a little bit better than her to beat her on the day. It looks the right race for her on paper." 

Race 7 - 4:50PM WEDDINGS AT BRC Class 2 Handicap (1350 METRES)
ColoursNo. / Horse Name / BarrierJockeyWeight
7. Keep Your Roses (9)Larry Cassidy    55.5kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "Although the 1350m start is a good start, the draw looks a little tricky so Larry is going to have to have his thinking cap on about where he puts her in the run. If she can relax and switch off, I believe her form is good enough to be up to a race like this and she should be hard to beat."
