    PREMIER trainer Emma Stewart is predicted to play a strong role in yet another rich futurity.

    Dominating features such as the Vicbred Super Series, Breeders’ Crown and Southern Cross in recent years, Stewart will head to Tabcorp Park Melton for today’s Australian Pacing Gold Bullion heats.

    Three pacing qualifiers are scheduled to be conducted, with Stewart to be represented by five two-year-olds…including the favourite in two heats!

    Debutante filly Eureka Jo will launch Stewart’s attack, with the daughter of Bettor’s Delight drawn perfectly in the pole.

    The first foal from former handy mare Our Star Dust, Eureka Jo is from the same family as Stewart’s former superstar, Safari.

    Eureka Jo is on the second line of betting at $3.20, with Eye Believe heading TAB Fixed Odds markets at $1.50 from gate two.

    Eye Believe has been runner-up during her two starts for Nathan Jack.

    Scoring upon debut in Maryborough last week, Stormryder is a $1.30 favourite in the opening colt and gelings’ heat.

    Drawn gate five, Stormryder will only face three rivals in the 1720-metre encounter following the scratching of the polemarker, Nathan Street.

    Like his stablemate, War Dan Buddy dominates betting at $1.12 in the second heat from barrier six.

    Also making his debut, another Stewart-prepared youngster – Prioritise – is considered the biggest threat at $5 from barrier five.

    Another by Bettor’s Delight, Prioritise is a half-brother to Group One winners Idyllic and Petacular, which finished third in the 2016 APG Final at Club Menangle.

    “They are all pretty nice types which are capable of winning today,” Stewart said. “It will come down to what kind of run they get.”
