The Darren Weir-trained galloper was a most emphatic winner of the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m), and although he is yet to win beyond 1400m, he is Group 2 placed over 2100m.

Damien Oliver picks up the ride from the suspended Brad Rawiller and will be looking for his fifth win in the race, as well as his second in a row after guiding Fawkner to victory last year.

Memsie Stakes runner-up Rising Romance finished 2nd to Fawkner and will be looking to go one better this time as she jumps from barrier 2.

Kiwi mare Sofia Rosa has drawn the outside barrier and will need some luck slotting in, as will Prince Of Penzance (barrier 12) and Happy Trails (11).

While Saturday’s $500,000 feature is mostly a Memsie rematch over 200m further, the Lee and Anthony Freedman-trained Our Ivanhowe and Happy Trails resuming and adding some depth to the race, while Entirely Platinum comes into the race following a 3rd in the PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) and Ayers Rock comes from a BM78 at Cranbourne.
