O'Brien's assistant trainer Ben Gleeson said Iconoclasm was now Brisbane bound with the goal being the Group One Handicap at .

Providing the second leg of a double, Iconoclasm ($2.90) scored a short-head win from ($15) with the $2.40 favourite 1-1/4 lengths away third.

Gleeson said Iconoclasm had undertaken the bulk of his preparation at O'Brien's Barwon Heads property before transferring to the base in the past couple of weeks.

Gleeson said Iconoclasm was likely to head to Brisbane early next month for the first of three runs in , culminating in the $1.5 million Stradbroke Handicap on June 8.

“Danny's got a couple of more runs planned for him,” Gleeson said.

“He may go two-week breaks between runs and that leaves us six weeks to the Stradbroke.”
