The Lindsay Park-trained Long Leaf Horseform is unbeaten in three starts including the Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) (Listed, 1000m), while Ennis Hill Horseform was most recently seen winning the Chairman's Stakes (Gr 3, 1000m).

"Basically, as a rule, fillies don't run against colts in these type of races because generally there are Group One races for fillies and Group One races for colts,” Kirwin said.

"We don't have that situation down here and it should be addressed in my mind.

"There are no Group One races for two-year-old fillies here so you have no other choice but to run against each other."
