The Eagle Way is run over three heats with a final over 2000m next month to help find stayers among Queensland's young horses.
“This series is a great idea because it gives Queensland trainers an idea of how their horses will go at 1600m and up to distance races early in the season,” Munce said.
Ceol Na Mara is raced by one of Queensland's biggest owners in Bill Andrews and his brother John.
Munce bought her as a yearling for clients but one of the owners died and Andrews bought three of his horses from a deceased estate sale.
“Bill was good enough to let me keep training her and I have always had a wrap on her,” Munce said.
Stewart is determined to get back into the limelight after leaving for a short contract in Mauritius in August.
“A few top jockeys have moved here while I was away so it is important I get winners early,” Stewart said.
