The biggest news coming in over the weekend was the Order Of The Sun, Gai Waterhouse’s favourite in the race, will be saddled by Vlad Duric. Order Of The Sun has been attracing a lot of interest in the betting markets leading up to the race following his impressive victory in the VRC St Leger last week, and Waterhouse must be confident of adding another victory to an already positive autumn campaign, which has come on the back of her triumphant Melbourne Cup season with Fiorente. The St Leger win will have been an important sign for Waterhouse, after her horse had disappointed in the last few months, failing to place in his last three races, having last won in February.

Ken Keys’ Bring Something is also shaping up as a strong contender for the race, and will be aiming for his third win on the trot, and will enter the race as the form horse after picking up two victories in the last month, notably the only two victories of Bring Something’s career.

The only other horse under 6.00 at this stage of the week is local trainer Richard Jolly’s Kushadasi. The Choisir colt boasts an impressive record, having won in four of his nine starts, and only twice finishing below second place, including his last effort in the Chairman’s Stakes, where he finished just out of the places in fourth. His last win was just a month ago, however, and he will be pushing the leaders all the way to the finish line.
