Spearheading the group is proven traveller Ortensia who took the international stage by storm last year, winning the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai as well as the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes and Group 2 King George Stakes in the UK.

But to warrant another international expedition the seven-year-old will have to show remarkable improvement from her first two autumn starts.

The Paul Messara-trained mare finished 11th in the Oakleigh Plate and beat just one runner home in a 13-horse Newmarket Handicap field.

Queensland brothers Spirit Of Boom and Temple Of Boom join the experienced mare in nominations.

Spirit Of Boom was third at Group 1 level when travelling to Perth in November and has begun his autumn campaign with a third in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate and a sixth in the Newmarket.

Temple Of Boom, a Group 1 winner in last year’s Galaxy, kicks off his autumn against Hay List in the Challenge Stakes at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

Another Australian Group 1 winner nominated is Atomic Force who took out the Galaxy in 2011.

Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller has entered consistent mare Red Tracer.

The five-year-old, who is unbeaten on wet tracks, has won 10 of 24 starts and finished in the minor placings on nine other occasions.

She has finished second in the Group 2 Thoroughbred Breeders’ Classic and won the Group 3 Millie Fox Stakes to begin her autumn.

Other Australian horses nominated for the KrisFlyer Sprint are lightly-raced mare Lady Melksham, Michael Moroney’s four-year-old speedster African Pulse and Perth’s Winterbottom Stakes runner-up Power Princess.
