A familiar Queensland carnival theme returns as the weather looks set to play a major part in the make-up of the field for the Listed Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich next Saturday.

Several horses who failed to make the field for the Stradbroke Handicap at Doomben yesterday are expected to run a week later in the Eye Liner. But rain is predicted in Ipswich over the next four days and is not expected to clear until later in the week,

Trainer Matt Dunn has earmarked the Eye Liner for Perfect Dare, who finished third in the Gr. 2 Moreton Cup at his last start. However Dunn said Perfect Dare had an aversion to wet tracks and he would have to watch the weather.

Likewise, fellow trainer Toby Edmonds is keeping tabs on the rain for The Virginian, who was first emergency for the Stradbroke and missed a run.

"I had the Eye Liner ear marked for him but we will just have to wait and see now," said Edmonds, who indicated Col 'N' Lil would race on for another season after having her first start for him yesterday.

But Col 'N'Lil was now unlikely to run in the Ipswich Cup after being unplaced at Doomben.

"She will probably go for good spell and then race on until next winter," Edmonds said.

The weather has also influenced Desleigh Forster to miss the Eye Liner with Too Good To Refuse, who was beaten a nose in a Listed sprint at Doomben.

"The Eye Liner was to be his race after he was fourth emergency in the Stradbroke, but I didn't want to run him on a rain-affected track at Ipswich so he ran at Doomben," she said.

"He will now go to the Glasshouse Mountains Sprint in a fortnight at Caloundra."
