Trainer James Cummings has also accepted for the Australian Guineas at Flemington with the son of More Than Ready and now faces the task of choosing between the two lucrative options.

James’ father, Anthony Cummings, will saddle up the in-form Man From Uncle and has also drawn wide in barrier 13.

Traditionally, wide gates aren’t a major detractor in the Randwick Guineas with both Dissident and Mosheen having claimed victory from barrier 12 in the past five years.

Apart from Man From Uncle, the Kris Lees-trained Invincible Gem is the only other last start winner heading into the $1 million feature having posted a massive 3.8-length win in the Spring Stakes (1600m) at Randwick last start.
