Provocative in winning form, something her connections hope will be repeated in Brisbane.

Provocative in winning form, something her connections hope will be repeated in Brisbane.

Provocative will head to Australia on Sunday and is likely to start in a three-year-old event at Ipswich three day later.

Trainer Tony Pike is hoping the Zabeel filly can snare the thick end of the $A20,000 purse and boost her earnings to book a spot in the Gr. 1 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm on June 4.

Provocative, whose Gr.1 New Zealand Derby-winning stablemate Rangipo will line up in the Gr. 3 Fred Best Classic at Doomben on May 21, has two wins and two placings from her five starts.
