Trainer Darren Weir will produce a couple more of his Brisbane team at the Werribee trials.

Group One Stradbroke Handicap entrants Peaceful State and Japanese import Danon Liberty are set to take part in the official barrier trials on Monday.

Weir had originally pencilled in the Queensland Guineas (1600m) on June 9 for Peaceful State but has instead changed tack to run him in the Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben on the same day.

“He’ll be a lightweight chance with something like 51 kilos,” Weir said.

“He’ll get back and finish hard.

“Hopefully they might switch the races to the Sunshine Coast as that would be better for him.”

Weir said no decision had been made on a rider for the colt noting Dean Yendall, who can ride light, would be a leading contender.

Peaceful State ran second to Grunt in the Australian Guineas in March and was twice successful in Adelaide during the recent carnival at Morphettville.

Weir said Monday’s trials fitted in with the program for the two horses.

Japanese import Danon Liberty is yet to race in Australia but comes with impressive credentials.

He was bought by Australian Bloodstock who have had previous success with Japanese imports Brave Smash and Tosen Stardom.

Weir described Danon Liberty as a beauty.

“We’ve got a fortnight to wind him up, but he’s a beautiful horse,” Weir said.

“He’s done his work at Warrnambool and he looks the real deal.

“The Australian Bloodstock boys certainly buy the right ones.”

Weir said Lucky For All, unplaced as $1.40 favourite under Ethan Brown at Sandown on Saturday, was likely to press ahead to the Queensland Derby on June 9.

He said the gelding had pulled up well but unfortunately got into the wrong spot during the run.

“Ethan might be a bit hard on himself but there wasn’t a lot he could do,” Weir said.

“He got into a spot and they got around him.

“You decide to go in or you decide to go out straightening, he went in and unfortunately things blocked up.

“We’ll still probably go there but it’s hard to know how he’ll go now.

“I’m sure he would have run well the way he was moving into it late.”
