Romantic Touch has won three of his five race starts and has earned more than $365,000 in prize money during his career.

The three-year-old will be returning for the spring racing carnival in the 2013 Danehill Stakes after a winter spell.

Romantic Touch won his last start in the Group 1 JJ Atkins at Eagle Farm in June, despite having no Black Type experience prior to the race.

The Northern Meteor gelding is making his way towards the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas on October 12, 2013, and will be hoping to start his career on a high in the 2013 Danehill Stakes.

Romantic Touch has drawn the widest barrier of 17 for the 2013 Danehill Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Glen Boss.

Safeguard is also amongst the 2013 Danehill Stakes final field and barrier draw.

The Exceed And Excel colt is currently unbeaten, having won all three of his race starts and having accrued more than $205,000 in prize money.

Safeguard won his first-up start of the spring in the Group 3 Vain Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse on August 17, and will be looking to do the same in the 2013 Danehill Stakes.

The Peter Snowden-trained colt has drawn barrier seven for the race and will be ridden by jockey Craig Williams.
