One of the key support races on the program that are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% markets on, this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Schweppes Crystal Mile (1600m) features a dozen hopefuls.

Sitting top of the Crystal Mile odds at $2.30, backed in early from $2.30, is the Darren Weir-trained Husson six-year-old Lucky Hussler coming off a smart victory in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m).

On Saturday Lucky Hussler returns to the Valley for the first time since winning the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at the track during the autumn, and is tipped to enjoy back-to-back 1600m wins on way to a trip to Perth for the Railway Stakes on November 21.

The favourite is fourth-up this weekend and looks hard to beat at his peak getting in well at weight-for-age with Glen Boss in the saddle.

Two of Lucky Hussler’s 11 rivals join him at single figures in the latest Crystal Mile betting markets with the rails-drawn Turn Me Loose ($5) and Bow Creek ($6) drawn nicely in gate four for his returning run.

New Zealand horseman Murray Baker enjoyed a stellar weekend of racing in Victoria last Saturday – Sunday winning the Caulfield Cup with Melbourne Cup-bound four-year-old Mongolian Khan and then the Seymour Cup with Turn Me Loose.

Nominated for both the Railway Stakes and Kingston Town Classic during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival, Turn Me Loose is also likely to target the $1 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on November 7.

Firstly though he shoots for the Crystal Mile win from the inside alley with Opie Bosson in the saddle on the short six-day turnaround.

Bow Creek will get the run of the race in barrier four with Wednesday’s Geelong Cup winning jockey James McDonald in the saddle, the John O’Shea-trained import debuting down under on the back of a last when sixth to Cox Plate fancy Arod in the Group 2 Summer Mile (1609m) at Ascot in July.

The next best in the markets at longer odds for an upset include Amovatio ($12) in the outside alley for jockey Damien Oliver to overcome and the super consistent Sons Of John ($15).

Sydney’s top trainer Chris Waller prepares Al Maher five-year-old Amovatio who has won his past three starts on the trot all in Melbourne including a first-up Listed Weekend Hussler Stakes (1400m) victory at Caulfield two weeks ago.

Drawn well in gate two with Jeff Penza retaining the ride, Jason Attard’s always-honest Oratorio five-year-old Sons Of John makes his Melbourne debut this weekend.

Winner of the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) in the winter he comes off back-to-back places this time in the latest of which was a brave third as a 16/1 shot behind Chris Waller’s Cox Plate chance this weekend Winx in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) on October 3.
