Peter Moody has included All That I Know in 2016 Tasmanian Derby nominations, who has found great form leading into what will be her black type debut.

Placing fifth in a Pakenham minor over 1000m on debut last winter, All The I Know was immediately returned to the paddock with a view towards this preparation.

Placing fifth in the All Day Café Maiden (1112m) on December 14th, the More Than Ready filly progressed to second in the Unox Maiden Plate (1400m) on January 8th before breaking through for a maiden race win in the Procon Developments Maiden Plate (1600m) most recently on January 22nd.

Patrick Payne has been pleased with the form and class displayed by Al Shameel this time and has included the gelding in 2016 Tasmanian Derby nominations.

Posting one win and five minors through eight career starts so far, Al Shameel clearly needed the run when ninth in the Swan Hill Bus Lines BM64 (1200m) on November 29th but has since placed second in each of his four most recent starts, including the Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) on January 24th.

A proven performer over a staying distance, the Zabeel gelding will be tough to beat in the 2016 Tasmanian Derby.

Darren Weir has posted notable success in the country’s best staying races recently and has included Howard Be Thy Name in 2016 Tasmanian Derby nominations.

Yet to finish outside the first three through six career starts so far, the Redoute’s Choice colt placed second in each of the CRT Whites Rural Maiden Plate (1533m) and Grand Hotel Frankston Maiden (1400m) before winning the Porter Plant Maiden Plate (1600m) last time out on January 27th.

The 2016 Tasmanian Derby final field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
