The Barley A Moment six-year-old resumes on the weekend, Moment Of Change one of 16 hopefuls nominated for the $120,000 Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) and likely Ladbrokes.com.au favourite.

Winner of the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes – Futurity Stakes double at Caulfield back in February, they were last seen running a disappointing 12th to Lankan Rupee in the Newmarket Handicap at Flemington on March 8.

A $50,000 bargain buy back in 2010, Moment Of Change has amassed over $1.57 million in prizemoney already and returns to their pet track on the weekend having won all four of their starts at Caulfield.

They’ve also got a great first-up record (6-2-3-1) and look on track for a big spring as they head towards a start in the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 25.

Moody has also nominated for Club Command, the fellow six-year-old also first-up here after some strong Queensland form in the summer including a third in the Magic Millions Cup and Sunshine Coast Cup.

Another topliner in the Regal Roller entries this year is the Trent Busuttin-trained Kiwi El Roca to be ridden by Hugh Bowman.

The Fastnet Rock stallion debuts as a four-year-old here having last been seen running a lackluster ninth in the Doncaster Mile in the mud at Randwick in April.

That was the only flat run from the youngster during their otherwise stellar autumn down under however that produced a second to Dissident in the Randwick Guineas and third behind Gordon Lord Byron in the George Ryder Stakes.

One local in flying form ready to line-up in the Regal Roller meanwhile is the Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained Hard Stride, the perennial placegetter coming off four straight second place finishes.

Two back the Street Sense four-year-old was runner-up to Pyrrolic in the Listed Creswick Stakes (1200m) at Flemington and they’re back in black-type company after another second this time in a Benchmark 90 at Moonee Valley a fortnight back.

They are joined too by stablemate Pillar Of Creation, the God’s Own five-year-old having won back-to-back races earlier this campaign before their fifth to Nearest To Pin in the Listed All Victorian Sprint Series Final (1200m) down the Flemington straight last month.

Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller is also in the mix with Kencella engaged for a first-up run here.

The Exceed And Excel gelding was in top form during the early stages of their previous prep but came unstuck when 11th to Tiger Tees in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m).

They’ve trialed well since at Rosehill however but need to handle the other way of racing if accepted for their maiden Caulfield run here.

Another top interstate hope is then Lloyd Kennewell’s flying filly Thiamandi who hails from Adelaide and who is also nominated for Saturday’s feature race – the $200,000 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m).

She’s won three on the trot including back-to-back Caulfield wins this campaign, most recently in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) on July 26.

Other in-form gallopers nominated for the Regal Roller then include the Robert Smerdon-trained Electric Fusion, Jemerica who beat home Paddy’s Gem here last start and Lonhro seven-year-old Territory for Jarrod Austin.

See below for the full Regal Roller Stakes 2014 nominations, the final field of acceptances set for release on Wednesday.
