Mr Marbellouz is set to resume from an injury-enforced break at Doomben

Toowoomba trainer Kevin Kemp is eyeing another hometown feature race success with Mr Marbellouz, who resumes from an injury-enforced break at Doomben.

Mr Marbellouz has not raced since finishing eighth in last year’s Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich but Kemp believes the seven-year-old has retained his competitiveness.

“He had a jump out here last week and went really good so I’m sure he hasn’t lost his desire to race,” Kemp said.

“After his last run he got a virus which hung around a bit longer than normal so I gave him a bit longer out.

“Then when he got over that he gave his leg a bit of a knock, nothing serious but just enough to put him back out again.

“I can’t thank the owners enough. They told me to just give him whatever time he needed to come right again and they’ve been really patient.”

Toowoomba’s signature race, the Weetwood Handicap has been moved from its traditional autumn timeslot to late September for the first time this year.

Kemp has won the race four times with Startell (2001), Tellem (2005, 2007) and Typhoon Red (2014).

“Ask anyone in Toowoomba and they’ll tell you the Weetwood is the race they always want to win, so to do it four times has been a real thrill,” he said.

Kemp plans to give Mr Marbellouz three lead-up runs before the Weetwood, starting with Saturday’s Canadian Club Handicap (1050m) at Doomben.

“He’s drawn a bit sticky (eight) but if he gets the right run I’m sure he’ll be highly competitive,” Kemp said.

Apprentice Madeleine Wishart’s three kilogram claim means Mr Marbellouz will carry the minimum weight of 54kg.

Mr Marbellouz opened at $14 with TAB Fixed Odds but his price has been trimmed to $10 following steady support from punters.
