Julienas Heads 2013 Chairman’s Quality Field

Early Sydney Cup favourite Julienas heads a strong field for the Group 2 2013 Chairman’s Quality (2600m) which will take place at Randwick on Saturday.

Julienas is joined by a number of other Sydney Cup hopefuls in what is a traditional lead-up race to the autumn’s greatest staying test on April 27.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse, the six-year-old will chase a third straight win this weekend, having taken out the Sky High Stakes and the NE Manion Cup in convincing fashion last month.

Julienas will carry 58kg on Saturday, 0.5kg less than Lloyd Williams-owned topweight Mourayan.

Mourayan will be having his first start in Sydney this campaign after running eighth in the Australian Cup at Flemington on March 9.

The  tough seven-year-old stayer won the Group 3 Craven Plate at Randwick last year before running seventh in the Melbourne Cup.

Heading into the race in strong form is Chris Waller-trained import Permit who is coming off consecutive seconds in the Listed Randwick City Stakes and the NE Manion Cup.

The Dansili gelding started as favourite in last year’s Sydney Cup before going amiss during the race.

Epona Stakes winner Aliyana Tilde will attempt to score back-to-back victories and was a Group 1 runner-up in last year’s Australian Oaks.

Peter Moody has sent Vatuvei to Sydney in search of a staying trip after he won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) in the spring. He joins Thy as one of two Moody-trained runners in the field.

Backing up a week after finishing seventh in the BMW is Hathras who joins the majority of the field at the minimum weight of 53kg.

Out to confirm his Sydney Cup credentials is Randwick City Stakes winner Tremec while Saintly Sun steps up in class after two straight wins in restricted grade.
