#1 Mosheen ($3.50)
Difficult to look past Mosheen who has already won four times at Group 1 level and collected more than $2.7 million in stakes.
Prior to a throat operation she was considered among the top Cox Plate contenders and after obviously struggling in her first two spring starts she bounced back tremendously to win the Blazer Stakes against a similar field last start.
Looks a class above her rivals here.
#12 Lucky Penny ($18.00) and #4 Red Tracer ($5.50)
Lucky Penny is a talented mare and won the first three starts of her career before failing on a heavy track in the Cockram Stakes in August.
It was her first run on a wet track and she showed she couldn’t handle it but can bounce back here on a suitable dry surface.
Red Tracer showed she is adept on all surfaces when winning the Premiere Stakes on a good track against a quality field of sprinters in her first spring start on October 6.
A highly consistent mare with nine wins and seven placings from 20 starts she looks well placed to feature in the top three here.
