Tom Dabernig, who trains the fillies in partnership with David and Ben Hayes, said the trio had all spelled particularly well.

"They are all having a gallop on Monday, it will not be a real hard gallop and they'll probably have two jumpouts at Flemington later in the month before resuming," Dabernig said.

"They are all at a similar stage and we're a little bit unsure of their paths. They have all spelled really well and they all look terrific and all seem to have come back in great order.

"You never know how they transition from two to three, but I think they look like they had that class factor and I reckon they will (train on),"

Catchy won the Group I Blue Diamond Stakes in March with Formality behind in third place while Tulip finished third behind She Will Reign in the Group I Golden Slipper Stakes and was fourth in the Blue Diamond Stakes.

Dabernig said the training partnership had not made any firm plans for the trio but will be aiming to keep them apart on race day.

"There's races like the Quezette Stakes and one of them might kick off in Sydney. We'll try to keep them all split up," Dabernig said.

"We're hoping they're milers. They've shown that they're good sprinters, but the key this preparation will be to see whether they can run a mile."
