The Hard Spun gelding is best known for his Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) victory over the Randwick mile in the autumn and returned to racing at the same track a fortnight ago for a second to Tycoon Tara in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m).

Four-year-old Le Romain is nominated for yet another Randwick start, a track he now has two wins and two second from four runs at, on Chelmsford Stakes Day in the $175,000 Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m).

The Tramway Stakes nominations feature 14 early entries and have been extended until 11:00am (AEST) on Tuesday morning by Racing NSW.

Le Romain is out to atone for being the beaten favourite first-up and will appreciate the extra metres on Saturday as he gears up for a shot at the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) on October 1.

Also coming off a first-up second and nominated for the Tramway Stakes this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival are the Lindsay Park-trained duo of Dibayani and Jacquinot Bay.

Imported seven-year-old Dibayani returned to racing with a second to Sooboog at Flemington on August 6 in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m).

He should enjoy getting back to Randwick where he placed second to Winx in February’s Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m).

Stablemate Jacquinot Bay was second past the post in the Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) in mid-August at Caulfield in Melbourne, the veteran nine-year-old also nominated for a clash with Winx in the $250,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) on Saturday.

Others with the fitness edge include Tim Martin’s Street Cry mare Heavens Above coming off a fourth in the Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m) from August 20 and Messene for Hawkes Racing.

Five-year-old Heavens Above rounded out her autumn with a second to Azkadellia in the Group 1 Queen Of the Turf Stakes (1600m) before her Toy Show return when defeated only 1.6 lengths.

Her two second-up runs to date have both produced second place efforts and she also has plenty of form at Randwick (5-2-1-1).

Messene ran fourth in the Show County Quality meanwhile not much further behind Le Romain (2nd), the Lonhro eight-year-old shooting four his fourth win from nine starts over Saturday’s distance if accepted.

Chris Waller meanwhile has nominated for a trio of hopefuls.

Waller’s possible Tramway Stakes contingent is made up by Kiwi expat Cosmic Cube, Pins four-year-old Mackintosh who has won five of his eight starts to date including back-to-back Group 3s in Doomben before the Queensland Derby last (18th) on June 11 and Sadler’s Lake coming off a first-up second at Rosehill from August 13.
