Formerly known as the Chatham Stakes, this year’s $200,000 Group 3 Yellowglen Stakes (1400m) takes over the race name of the Group 2 run over 1200m on the program from previous years and attracted 20 nominees.

One of the bigger names in the field is Wez Hunter’s Encosta De Lago seven-year-old Smokin’ Joey, upset $41 winner of the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) in Adelaide back in May.

Since then the veteran has failed to finish in the money in all three of his assignments including a last start fifth in the Group 3 Moonga Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on October 18.

Moonga Stakes winner Lucky Hussler is also nominated for Saturday’s Yellowglen Stakes, the Darren Weir-trained Husson gelding coming off four straight top three runs in Melbourne.

He’s been to the track twice for one win and a second two back behind Under The Louvre in a Listed race over this distance.

Also coming via the Moonga Stakes is the John O’Shea-trained third placegetter Generalife, fourth to Shamus Seamus the run before in Sydney’s Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m).

O’Shea and Godolphin have also nominated for Commands gelding Limes coming off a seventh in the Moonga Stakes but with a credible record at Flemington (7-1-3-0).

Other last start winners along with Lucky Hussler include Phillip Stokes’ Adelaide raider Hucklebuck, the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Sydnesider Mahara, Rainbow Gold coming off a victory at Seymour, and the Anthony Cummings-trained duo of Aomen and Spy Decoder.

Shamardal seven-year-old Aomen beat home Monton over 1400m at Randwick on October 11 while his four-year-old Testa Rosa stable mate Spy Decoder improved off a 12th to He’s Your Man in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) to win over this distance on the Kensington track.

Other higher rated hopes then include Aeronautical who is also nominated for the $300,000 Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) on Saturday, the Tony Gollan-trained Alma’s Fury gearing up for his 52nd career start, and Gai Waterhouse’s Epsom Handicap eighth placed Hussonet four-year-old Woodbine.
