A total of ten three-year-olds have been confirmed to take to the barriers for the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m), including Group 1 performer Odyssey Moon and Peter Moody’s standout winter contender El Greco.

Gregers undoubtedly headlines a 13 horse field for Race 7 – the Listed Carlyon Stakes (1000m). The talented David Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained mare has been set for Group 1 sprints this season and remains clear favourite in betting markets for first-up success, but faces a stern task in the likes of Éclair Choice, Fast Cash and the ever-consistent Le Bonsir.

Race 8 – the Sweeney Estate Agents Handicap (1500m) is shaping as of the standout races at Moonee Valley today, and will include the likes of Foundry, The United States, Ihtsahymn and the Australian debut of former Dubai galloper Almoonqith.

Moonee Valley is experiencing overcast weather today and as a result, the track has been rated a Soft 5.
