The opening stakes race on the George Main Stakes Day program at Randwick Racecourse on Saturday, this year’s $100,000 Listed Schweppes Heritage Stakes (1100m) has attracted a final field of 12 three-year-olds.

Early favourite in the Heritage Stakes odds at paying $3.50 to retain his unbeaten record is flying Snitzel colt Russian Revolution carrying the 58.5kg top weight in the set weights plus penalties sprint.

Russian Revolution has won all three of his career starts to date including most recently the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield in mid-August.

He is back in Sydney for the first time since the winter and even under the kilos looks hard to beat in this field over the distance.

Close second favourite in the markets at $3.70 is Tango Rain drawn wide in gate 11 with Kerrin McEvoy booked to ride the Gerald Ryan-trained Manhattan Rain colt.

Tango Rain has won two of his three starts to date and comes of a Rosehill run from August 13 when second behind Star Turn in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m), his first stakes test.

Team Snowden meanwhile have also accepted for Jericho in barrier two, the returning Smart Missile colt at a current quote of $10 to win his three-year-old debut.

James McDonald partners the progressive youngster who comes off two smart seconds in Sydney lead-up trials ahead of his first run since the second to Archives in Brisbane’s Listed Hampden Stakes (1200m) on May 21.

Along with the top two fancies, a further two three-year-olds are under $10 in the latest Heritage Stakes betting odds with the rails-drawn Guard Of Honour ($6.50) and Hair Trigger ($6.50) in barrier four the other dangers.

Newcastle’s Kris Lees prepares Northern Meteor colt Guard Of Honour, the up-and-comer having broken his maiden status at just his second start on June 15 over 1000m at Warwick Farm before winning a subsequent trial over the same distance at Wyong on September 6.

Hair Trigger has Glyn Schofield aboard on Saturday, the James Cummings-trained son of Smart Missile making his black-type debut on the back of a winning Randwick trial from earlier in the month.

The other most notable hopefuls include the lightly-raced Team Hawkes-trained More Than Ready colt Spirit And Fire ($10) to be ridden by Tommy Berry from barrier three after a winning debut at Canterbury on August 17 and Gary Moore’s Sebring gelding Mount Panorama ($16) out to atone for his last (sixth) in the San Domenico Stakes first-up.
