Last season's WA champion two-year-old Luke's Luck will be transferred to Brisbane trainer Kelly Schweida for a winter campaign culminating in the $350,000 Queensland Guineas.

Owner Craig Thompson said Luke's Luck was likely to travel to Queensland next week to join Schweida's Eagle Farm stables.

The son of Show A Heart, who was gelded after a disappointing Ascot summer campaign, will be set for three races in Queensland. His first-up aim is the $125,000 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) on May 4.

He will then tackle the $125,000 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben on May 18 before the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 8.

Thompson's classy four-year-old, King Saul, may also head to Queensland. His immediate fate will be determined by his performance first-up in the $100,000 Bunbury Stakes (1400m) on March 10.

"Luke's Luck will head over next week straight from the paddock and get ready for the three races," Thompson said.

"There isn't much coming up for him here in Perth. He's come back nice and strong after being gelded.

"If King Saul goes well in the Bunbury Stakes, he will go over too.

"It would be a bit of a gamble with him because he doesn't like wet tracks."

Schweida won the Group 1 Winter Stakes at Eagle Farm in 2007 with Nova Star. He trains exciting colt Better Than Ready, who broke the Randwick 1200m record when winning the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes in October.

Thompson is excited about his chances of taking out Saturday week's $250,000 Magic Millions Perth 2YO Classic (1100m) at Ascot with Princess Hallowell, an impressive winner last Saturday.

Another filly could stand in his way after Camporella blitzed rivals in yesterday's MM Perth Yearling Sale Plate (1100m) at Ascot.

Jockey Jarrad Noske never panicked on the $2.30 favourite, who ran on from sixth on the turn to score by 1 3/4 lengths, despite being trapped three-wide throughout.

Trainer Dan Morton scored a quinella with Camporella beating Isola Blu. Noske and jockey Shaun O'Donnell, who rode Isola Blu, are likely to retain their respective rides for the MM Perth 2YO Classic.

Morton has booked jockey Campbell McCallum to ride his other classic contender, Moet Me.
