Twenty-five runners have been included in 2016 Queensland Guineas (1600m) nominations, highlighted by the pending appearance of some of the Brisbane Winter Carnival’s most exciting prospects at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Mr Individual has been something of an inconsistent performer for Leon and Troy Corstens through his entire racing career so far, but undoubtedly has the class to win the 2016 Queensland Guineas should he find peak condition on Saturday.

Debuting to racing last winter for success in a Bendigo minor over 1100m, Mr Individual failed to make much of an impression when seventh in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) in his black type debut second-up, but responded with a barnstorming run for success in the Polytrack BM64 (1200m) on September 16th.

Running a credible sixth amongst particularly classy company in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m), the Starspangledbanner colt returned to the paddock after taking out the Movenpick Raceday BM78 (1600m).

Clearly requiring a run when eleventh in the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) first-up on May 7th, Mr Individual ran on for fourth in the Le Pine Funerals Handicap (1400m) on May 28th and should find Saturday’s race a leading chance, should he draw a favourable barrier on Wednesday.

Leading trainer Chris Waller is offered only one chance of success in the Group 2 feature after including Tsaritsa in 2016 Queensland Guineas nominations.

Stamping herself as a filly to follow through an impressive four start debut preparation, Tsaritsa posted a maiden race win in the Café Culture Insitu BM66 (1400m) on January 7th before ending the campaign second in a Warwick Farm minor over 1400m a fortnight later.

Trialling well in the lead-up to her return this time, the Dane Shadow filly will be seeking a third-consecutive win in the Queensland Guineas after taking out each of the Schweppes BM67 (1250m) and Pat Hyland BM75 (1400m) through recent weeks.

Kimberley Star has posted a number of commendable results for Gai Waterhouse and is a leading chance of success in the 2016 Queensland Guineas.

Ending a strong 2015 spring campaign sixth in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m), Kimberley Star trialled well in the lead up to her 2016 return; running fourth in the Listed Fireball Stakes (1100m) first-up.

Progressing to a close second in the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m), the daughter of Star Witness failed to figure in the late stages of the Listed South Pacific Classic (1400m) on Day 2 of The Championships, but ran on for third in the Scone Guineas (1400m) last time out on May 14th.

The 2016 Queensland Guineas field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
