The scratching of leading contender Alpine Eagle has more than opened the race from a betting standpoint, however there is still plenty of class via the likes of Happy Trails, Hartnell, Who Shot Thebarman and Rising Romance.

Three Group 2 races will also be contested in the Gilgai Stakes (1200m), Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) and Blazer Stakes (1600m), while the winner of race 6; the Group 3 Bart Cummings (2520m) will gain ballot-free entry into the 2015 Melbourne Cup.
