Thirteen three-year-olds are among the original entries for this year’s $600,000 Group 1 Royal Randwick Guineas (1600m), Racing NSW extending the nominations until 11am (AEDT) on Tuesday.

Current top-rated hopeful heading towards the classic, Street Sense colt Hallowed Crown goes into the race with an outstanding record of five wins from six starts.

During the spring at Roshill he won an opening Group 1 in the Golden Rose Stakes over 1400m before suffering his first loss when fourth to subsequent Coolmore Stud Stakes winner Brazen Beau when dropped back down in distance for the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m).

First-up this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival he made an immediate impact returning to form to hold off Sweynesse in a star-studded edition of the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m).

If accepted and if successful Hallowed Crown will become the second horse in as many years to complete the Hobartville Stakes – Randwick Guineas double following Dissident (2014) last autumn.

The second and third placegetters coming out of the Hobartville are also nominated to take on their last start conqueror in the Randwick Guineas with runner-up Sweynesse and the Chris Waller-trained Kermadec.

Winner of back-to-back Group 3 races in Sydney last September, Lonhro colt Sweynesse ran third to Hampton Court in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick last October before a brave eighth when beaten under two lengths in Melbourne’s Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) in open company.

He returned when beaten only a neck in the Hobartville Stakes, an effort he’ll be out to improve on when shooting for his fifth career win at start number eight.

O’Shea and Godolphin have also nominated for Street Cry colt Lassitude who is yet to race in black type company.

Kermadec meanwhile has a host of options this autumn after running just a nose further back from Sweynesse when third in the Hobartville Stakes second-up this time in.

A winner over a mile at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival last November, the Teofilo colt will relish the step back up to the 1600m on Saturday and looks primed to perform third-up here.

Team Waller could also be represented by proven Zabeel colt Preferment.

The born-to-stay young gun won the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington to finish off his spring before failing to impress when 11th first-up in the Hobartville Stakes over an unsuitably short distance he will have taken improvement from.

Other notable Randwick Guineas nominees this autumn include Gai Waterhouse’s Spring Champion Stakes winner Hampton Court set to resume racing, last year’s Golden Rose runner-up Scissor Kick who won the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) first-up before a Hobartville fifth, and Peter & Paul Snowden’s Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win who ran one better when fourth in the Hobartville Stakes.

Extended nominations are out tomorrow followed by the Randwick Guineas 2015 final field and barriers on Wednesday.
