London Olympics hopeful Daniel Batman has nominated to run in tomorrow's Queanbeyan Gift, which was rescheduled after being rained out three weeks ago.

The former national sprint champion joins two-time Stawell Gift winner Josh Ross in a bumper race field chasing the $16,000 purse.

The pair will be competing with Collaroy Beach speedster Elliot Marynissen, who will jump from the 7m mark after his stirring win in the Cowra Gift last weekend.

''Like Ross, Batman is making a comeback to competition and is hoping to qualify for the London Olympic Games - on his best form Batman, off the 4m mark, should do very well,'' NSW Athletics president Ken English said.

''Backmarkers Josh Ross, a dual Stawell Gift winner, off 0.5m, and Liam Gander, off 2.25m, are two of Australia's best and will also be a good chance of taking out some of the $16,000 prize money on offer, while Victorian Chris Hargreaves showed very good recent form to finish second in last weekend's Mt Gambier Gift.

''Of the [Canberra] athletes, outstanding long jumper Ethan Gould ran brilliantly at Cowra on the weekend and has a competitive mark of 6.50m, while sprinter Brandan Galic, if anywhere near his best, will also give the race a shake from his 6.50m mark.''

The $16,000 women's Gift will be equally as intriguing with Yass runner Amy McIlrick also looking to win the Cowra-Queanbeyan double.

Australian pro sprinter of the year Laura-Jane Hilditch will be hard to beat off the 10.75m mark, while Canberra pair Melissa Breen (0.5m) and Lauren Boden (2m) will hope to storm home from the back.
