The Charlie Appleby-prepared Dubhe has drawn ideally for Saturday’s Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Royal Randwick and will jump from barrier 4 with Kerrin McEvoy aboard. 

McEvoy steered Cross Counter to victory in the Melbourne Cup for Appleby, and the Godolphin trainer now aims for his second Sydney Cup win having scored with Polarisation in 2017.

Last year’s Sydney Cup placegetters, Zacada (2nd) and Sir Charles Road (3rd), are back for another attempt and will jump from gates 12 and 20 respectively. 

Chris Waller claimed his second Sydney Cup last year with Who Shot Thebarman and will saddle up three runners on Saturday including Patrick Erin, Brimham Rocks and Shraaoh.
