Having drawn just nine early entries nominations for this year’s $175,000 Group 3 Mitty’s McEwen Stakes (1000m) have been extended until 10:00am (AEST) on Tuesday.

Of the current hopefuls the top-rated is the Darren Weir-trained dual Group 1 winning mare Platelet who resumes racing here.

The flying daughter of Strategic enjoyed back-to-back Group 1 turf triumphs in Adelaide during the winter taking out the Robert Sangster Classic – The Goodwood double in her two most recent runs.

Always honest and always consistent, the now five-year-old will be out to go one better than 12 months ago when a brave second behind Bel Sprinter in the McEwen Stakes last spring.

Other big name entries running first-up in the McEwen include Jim Conlan’s 2013 Cox Plate hope Rekindled Interest who hasn’t raced since their dead last in that race last October after which they underwent minor knee surgery, and the Peter Moody-trained Moment Of Change.

Barley A Moment gelding Moment Of Change showed lots of potential as a juvenile and built on that last spring with their victory in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m).

During the autumn they ran two brave Group 1 seconds behind Black Caviar (Lightning Stakes) and Shamexpress (Newmarket Handicap) and were last seen finishing a close fifth in The Goodwood at Morphettville behind Platelet on May 11.

There are a number of other gallopers though who come into the race with the fitness edge here including DC McKay Stakes winner General Truce who will be ridden by Nicholas Hall and Dean Howard’s last start Geelong winner Glamour Planet.

See below for the current McEwen Stakes 2013 nominations, the final field to be announced on Wednesday along with the barriers.
