Running as Moonee Valley Race 10 at 5:45pm (AEDT), this year’s $200,000 LUCFR Super Vase (2040m) has drawn a final field of 11 hopeful three-year-olds.

Many are eyeing a possible run Saturday week at Flemington in the $1.5 million Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m), a double last achieved by Efficient (2006) a decade ago.

A number of progressive young stayers are battling it out in the early Moonee Valley Vase betting markets at with Sacred Elixir the current $5 favourite.

Due to jump from a mid-field barrier six draw with Damian Lane in the saddle, the Tony Pike-trained New Zealander galloper has won four of his eight career starts.

He saluted in elite level company in Brisbane’s Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in the winter and won in Melbourne first-up taking out the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m).

His latest run was an eighth when 2.7 lengths beaten by Divine Prophet in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), a run he is tipped to improve on this weekend getting out over the extra metres of the Vase.

Hot on his heels in the Moonee Valley Vase odds at an equal $5.50 for the win are the James Cummings-trained Prized Icon and the Lindsay Park-trained Harlow Gold drawn at opposite ends of the field in barriers two and 10 respectively.

As a two-year-old More Than Ready colt Prized Icon saluted in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in Sydney and he chases his first win since on the weekend.

He comes off back-to-back thirds in Sydney this campaign, the latest on October 8 behind a 2016 Cox Plate runner on Saturday Yankee Rose in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m).

Prized Icon is proven at the Vase distance and Glyn Schofield retains the ride from the gun gate on Saturday with the colt having his maiden Melbourne run.

Harlow Gold is drawn wider and apprentice Regan Bayliss continues associations with the Tavistock filly.

She is out to beat the boys in the Moonee Valley Vase on the back of a fifth to Global Glamour in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) and is another that looks like she’ll enjoy getting out over more metres.

The other filly taking on the colts and geldings in the Moonee Valley Vase field this spring is the Simon Miller-trained Whispering Brook.

The Perth raider jumps from gate seven with Nicholas Hall staying in the saddle of the Hinchinbrook filly who is at $8 for the win following her brave Thousand Guineas third last time out.

Also under $10 in the markets paying $6 is So Si Bon in barrier four.

Robbie Laing saddles-up the beautifully bred So You Think colt who was beaten under two lengths in the Caulfield Guineas running the eye-catching fifth as a $51 roughie from a wide barrier (12 of 14).
