3rd race this prep

Career: 22-5-6-3

Needed the extra distance last start and would have won the C.F. Orr Stakes had he had a few more strides. He has a wide gate here (14) but has overcome wide barriers many times in the past.

#3 Ginga Dude

1st-up

Career: 37-12-5-6

#10 Spacecraft

3rd race this prep

Career: 14-5-1-1

Spacecraft was the first home, apart from Heart Of Dreams, of the field that has come through the C.F.Orr Stakes. He has never attempted this distance.

#11 Hanks

2nd-up

Career: 5-3-0-0

Rebel Soldier had a disappointing run in the C.F. Orr Stakes that saw him finish last, despite drawing a good barrier (4). He may finish better with the longer distance though, and did win the Group 3 Gordon Stakes at the end of his last prep.

#14 Faint Perfume

2nd-up

Career: 18-5-1-1

Faint perfume has not been in her best form of late, and didn’t finish better than sixth last prep. Looks like she is out-classed in this one.
