A total of 74 fillies have been nominated for the $1 million race, including Dear Demi.
Dear Demi has won three of her 11 race starts and has earned more than $360,000 in prize money.
The Dehere filly finished fourth in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes last start behind fellow Crown oaks 2012 nominee Longport, who won on protest.
Prior to her Tea Rose run, Dear Demi won the Group 2 Furious Stakes at Warwick Farm racecourse on September 8 in her second spring race start.

Dear Demi will have to face off against Bart Cummings’ talented trio of runners in the 2012 Crown Oaks.
Cummings will be out to win the 10th Crown Oaks title of his career with Duet, Kim Dynasty and Norzita.
Norzita lost the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes to Longport on a protest last weekend, after originally being first passed the post in the $175,000 race.
