Danchai has also been confirmed in the final field for a 2000m race at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens on Saturday but looks likely to contest the 2015 Ipswich Cup after being allocated the ideal barrier 2 and charged with carrying just 54kgs.

Posting two wins and a further seven minors over his 22 career starts so far, Danchai began his racing career under the guidance of William Haggas before being transferred to Australia and the care of Chris Waller prior to his 2014 campaign.

Returning this time for fifth in the TAB.com.au Handicap (1600m) at Warwick Farm on May 6th, the son of Authorized carries good form into the 2015 Ipswich Cup after finishing third behind Ecuador and Slow Pace in the Eremein Handicap (1800m) at Rosehill on May 30th.

Darci Be Good has also found competitive form leading into the 2015 Ipswich Cup and is sure to receive a good run in transit from barrier 6.

Securing seven wins and a further thirteen minors over his 46 career starts so far, the Darci Brahma gelding ran sixth in the Garrards Handicap (1350m) first-up on April 11th before returning to winning form in the Coastline BMW Handicap (1400m) on May 3rd.

Running a credible third in the Listed Spear Chief Quality (1600m) on May 30th, Darci Be Good will be partnered by last start hoop Damian Browne.

Local trainer Bruce Hill will launch a two-pronged attack on the feature race after confirming Miss Husson and Vodnik in the 2015 Ipswich Cup final field.

Finding great form leading into the Ipswich Cup, Miss Husson won an 1800m race on the Gold Coast on April 29th, and while failing to figure in the Summerveld Racing Stables BM95 (1800m), posting a near three length success in the Bruce McLachlan Memorial (1800m) on June 3rd.

Undoubtedly Hill’s better chance for success, Miss Husson will need some luck in running from barrier 10.

Vodnik is positioned slightly better in barrier 7 and is sure to be delivered a gem of a ride from Glen Colless.

Posting four wins and as many minors over his 16 start career, Vodnik ran fourth in the Wideform Handicap (1800m) before taking out the Victory Financial Cup Prelude (1800m) by two lengths on May 31st.
