The Ron Quinton-trained mare is topweight for Saturday’s 1500m-feature for fillies and mares with her stablemate Dixie Blossoms next with 56.5kg.
The two six-year-old mares have been mainstays of Quinton’s stable over the past few years but both are in their final preparations before heading to stud.
They have raced against each other throughout their careers and it is no different this time with the Queen of the Turf also a Group One target.
“They are both well and working well heading to the Coolmore,” Quinton said.
“They are not getting any better as they get older but they are still going well and wlll have a good gallop in the morning.
“It is a shame they have had to race each other so many times.”
Regular rider Andrew Adkins will be aboard Daysee Doom with Christian Reith taking the mount on Dixie Blossoms.
