The Fastnet Rock four-year-old is one of a full 20 starter field for this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) and sits top of the markets at $4.80 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The stallion is undefeated first-up (2-2-0-0) and races for the first time since a flat effort in the mud at Randwick in April when ninth to Sacred Falls in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Before that however he was on fire during the autumn running second to Dissident, who franked the form with a Memsie Stakes win last month to earn favouritism for the $400,000 Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) this Saturday, in the Randwick Guineas.

He was also a close third in the George Ryder Stakes over the 1500m at Rosehill with Saturday to be his maiden run at Flemington.

There are generous odds on offer for the bulk of this year’s Bobbie Lewis Quality field with just two other runners at single figures to win with Flamberge ($6.50) and the widely drawn Chautauqua ($7.50).

Drawn in barrier four with Vlad Duric to ride, Peter Moody’s Exceed And Excel gelding Flamberge is after his third straight win here.

Back on Golden Slipper Day in April the now five-year-old beat Hot Snitzel home in the Group 3 St Kingdom Stakes (1200m) in the wet and then won again first-up this time at Caulfield in the Group 3 The Heath (1100m) with Duric aboard.

Chautauqua on the other hand has barrier 19 to overcome, the Team Hawkes-trained Encosta De Lago four-year-old racing for the first time since a fifth to Cosmic Endeavour in the Inglis Guineas.

Before that the Gosford Guineas runner-up won the Hawkesbury Guineas with connections hoping he comes back in the same good order as a four-year-old this season.

The next best in betting at more generous odds are then the likes of last year’s runner-up and Group 1 performer Temple Of Boom ($10), the Gerald Ryan-trained Group 2 Danehill Stakes winner from last year Charlie Boy ($10), top winter miler Akavoroun ($11) and Speediness paying $14 to go back-to-back after winning the feature 12 months ago.

Colin Scott’s defending champ, drawn in barrier 12 with Craig Williams in the saddle, did it last year with the same hoop and a similarly wide gate (10) but had just 56.5kg compared to the equal 59.5kg he’s been allocated alongside Temple Of Boom for this weekend.
