1. Vow And Declare
He won the Melbourne Cup last year and resumed for 9th in the Makybe Diva Stakes. He should improve second-up.
2. Kings Will Dream
Was 10th in the Makybe Diva and has a win at this track and distance
3. Surprise Baby
This six-year-old Shocking gelding was 5th in the Melbourne Cup last year and resumed for a close 2nd in the G2 Feehan Stakes over 1600m. He looks to be one of the main chances.
He has two wins at this track and resumed for 7th in the Makybe Diva.
He finished 1.9lengths 5th in the Makybe Diva and could run well.
6. Master Of Wine
Finished 4th in the Makybe Diva and has a good record at this distance.
7. King Of Leogrance
The only runner having his first-up run for this campaign but has always been in the first three home when first-up.
This imported gelding has won three of his six Ausralian starts, but in much weaker company.
9. Verry Elleegant
Won the Group 1 Winx Stakes when resuming then ran 4th in the Group 1 George Main Stakes over 1600m on 19 September. She is a top quality mare and should fight out the finish.
She has been been well beaten in both runs this preparation. Looking elsewhere.
This nine-year-old is the oldest runner in the race and finished 6th in the Makybe Diva.
Resumed for 3rd in the G2 Chelmsford Stakes after running 7th in the Melbourne Cup last year. One of the chances.
13. Django Freeman
He has been placed in all three Ausdtralian starts and ran 2nd over 1700m at Flemington last start. This is a big rise in class.
This Western Austrlain runner was badly held up when 3.2 lengths 12th in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes last outing. Looks a chance with the nice light weight.
15. Toffee Tongue
She won the Group 1 Scweppes Oaks over 2000m back in May and hasn’t been far from the winner in two runs this preparation. Not the worst.
