Having claimed the Epsom Handicap (1600m) during the spring, Hauraki will be aiming to emulate the deeds of Winx who claimed the Epsom/Doncaster double in 2015-16.
We may not have seen the best of Chris Waller’s filly, Omei Sword, during the spring where she was ruled out early with an injury, but the daughter of High Chaparral sits on the second line of betting at $11.
The Kris Lees-trained Le Romain is next in line at $13 and represents great value considering he has raced over 1600m on three occasions and recorded Group 1 wins in the Randwick Guineas and Cantala Stakes, while finishing 1.2 lengths from Hauraki in the Epsom.
A host of runners occupy the $15 line of betting including the Waller-prepared Comin’ Through, Mackintosh and Mccreery, Caulfield Guineas winner Divine Prophet and Railway Stakes winner Scales Of Justice.
Darren Weir’s multiple Group 1-winner Black Heart Bart is a $17 chance to head north and capture the Doncaster during the autumn.
