Four black type races will have been slated for 2016 Silver Slipper Day; begging with the Group 2 feature race for two-year-olds (Race 4) at 2:30pm local time.

Godolphin runner Astern has remained an odds-on favourite all week and will be tough to beat with Premiership-winning hoop Hugh Bowman aboard, however Defcon and Mount Panorama would not look out of place winning.

Race 5; The Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1400m) will see the return of popular grey and 2015 race winner Catkins, who faces a tough assignment in resuming Group 1 winner First Seal.

Press Statement returns to action in the Hobartville Stakes alongside fellow Group 1 winner Vanburgh. The Anthony Cummings-trained Montaigne has a fitness advantage but faces a tough task in what is his black type debut.

Some of the Autumn Carnival’s most exciting staying prospects return to black type company in the Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m, Race 8) including Allergic and Kiwi raider Hasselhoof.
