Howard Be Thy Name runs in the $600,000 Queensland Derby, while Black Heart Bart contests the $1.5 million Stradbroke Handicap.

Weir’s Warrnambool foreman Jarrod McLean said both horses had improvedsince theyhad made the journeynorth.

“Howard Be Thy Name has been up here for a few weeks and has thrived,” McLean said.

“Black Heart Bart came up on Tuesday after a final gallop at Ararat on Monday and has settled in really well.

“Howard Be Thy Name ran third in the Grand Prix Stakes at Doomben, but he will be better suited to running at Eagle Farm.

“Both horses are working at the beach, similar to what we do with them in Warrnambool.

“I can’t fault the condition of either horse in the lead-up to the group one races.”

Ciaron Maher, who trains at Caulfield but uses pre-training facilities in Warrnambool, will be trying to win another group one race with Azkadellia when she runs in the Stradbroke.

Azkadellia won the group one Queen Of The Turf Stakes two runs ago, before running second in the Doomben 10,000 on May 28.

Weir’s Warrnambool stable also has Stratum Star, Real Love and Puccini running in other black type races at Eagle Farm.

The stable has five runners at Flemington and numerous starters at Swan Hill over its three-day Queen’s Birthday Carnival.
