A total of 10 three-year-old colts and geldings are in the mix for Saturday’s $150,000 Group 3 KS Environmental Vain Stakes (1100m), which is set to run as Caulfield Race 5 at 2:40pm (AEST) on P.B. Lawrence Stakes Day.

Undefeated boasting two wins from as many starts to date, Snitzel colt Russian Revolution has his Melbourne debut in the Vain Stakes to avoid a clash with his Golden Slipper Stakes winning stablemate Capitalist in Sydney’s Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) on Saturday.

Last time out Russian Revolution, who is early favourite in Vain Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, won a set weights plus penalties race for two-year-olds over 1200m at Randwick.

This weekend is his first Black-Type test as well as his first run the other way of going, barrier four to help the recent Randwick trial winner handle the assignment.

Russian Revolution is likely to head back to Sydney for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 10, a race Capitalist is early favourite to win, before a possible October 8 run in the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over a mile.

The youngster is at $13 in pre-field Golden Rose odds, while he occupies the second line of betting at $13 in all-in Caulfield Guineas markets – equal with Capitalist and trailing only Sacred Elixir ($9).

The other notable 2016 Caulfield Guineas-bound three-year-old in the Vain Stakes mix this year at $31 for the Group 1 in futures markets is the Darren Weir-trained Artie Dee Two.

Like Russian Revolution, the up-and-comer has won both of his career starts ahead of the Group 3 this weekend.

A son of Artie Schiller, Artie Dee Two saluted on the Synthetic Geelong track on debut before a last start Moonee Valley win over 1200m on June 18.

The other runner yet to taste defeat in the race is the Mick Price-trained Hardham in gate eight with Damien Oliver to ride the returning Redoute’s Choice colt, a winner on debut at Pakenham back in early March.

The highest-rated of the Vain Stakes acceptors meanwhile is the David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Valliano (76), to be ridden from gate seven by Damian Lane.

The son of French-bred stallion Equiano has won two of his seven runs to date, both victories achieved at the Caulfield track.

He won the lucrative $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) in early February before his distant 11th to Extreme Choice back at the track later that month in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Valliano was back in the winner’s stall in mid-April though carting 60kg to a quarter-length win over Dissolute in the $150,000 VOBIS Gold Ingot (1200m).

Hayes’ & Dabernig’s Lindsay Park stable has also accepted for Highland Beat who is drawn a treat in barrier three with champion hoop Craig Williams jumping aboard the well-tried Exceed and Excel colt.

Highland Beat has had nine starts so far for two wins and four seconds, his latest run on April 30 producing a devastatingly close second behind Oregon’s Day in the Listed Redoute’s Choice Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield.
