Cummings’ sprinter was back to his best with a Group 2 win over 1000 metres at Randwick last time out, and will be looking to continue that winning form as he steps up a class. That race was a good indicator with regard to the form of many of the main contenders for Saturday’s race, and seemed to serve as a dress rehearsal for the Galaxy, with Famous Seamus and Bel Sprinter finishing in third and fourth respectively that day, followed by Sessions in sixth and Temple Of Doom eighth.

John O’Shea, poised to make his switch to the Darley operation at the end of the Spring Racing season leads his Kencella into the race fresh from a win in a Group 3 race over 1100 metres on the same track and looking to make a significant step up for Saturday’s race.

With the weather expected to play up over the weekend at Rosehill, it will be important to keep an eye out for the stronger wet-track runners, with both Sessions and Rain Affair both proving their abilities on a heavy track in the past. Rain Affair has the added advantage of having previously won on the track and over the same distance, and, starting from favourite in gate 5, Pride will be confident of his charge’s chances of repeating victory this weekend.
