The winner of last year’s race, Platelet, lines up again for another crack at the title this year, but faces strong opposition this year, most notably in the form of the Gai Waterhouse-trained Driefontein, who has beaten Darren Weir’s sprinter in his last two starts at Morphetville, in a Group 3 and the Group 1 Sportingbet Classic over the same distance as the Goodwood this Saturday.

These two horses are by no means the only in the horses in the race, however, and punters will be keen to have a look at the form of Sistine, who, with seven wins from his last eight starts will be a more than handy opponent come raceday.

In fact, looking throughout the field, you will find winners. Daniel’s Clarken’s Miracles Of Life, for example, who recently came out on top of a Group 2 race at very same Morphetville where he will start as second favourite this Saturday. Also looking decent in the formbook is Gregers, whi has placed in two of his last three starts, most recently third behind Driefontein and Platelet in the Sportingbet Classic, where he proved he can push these type of opponents to the line. Saturday’s race will be a big test of his temperament, however.
