The meeting’s marquee race is next on the card with Fayerra (14) the sole scratching from the Group 1 2020 Neds Blue Diamond Stakes field where Anthony Freedman’s undefeated colt Hanseatic ($2.70 @ Ladbrokes.com.au) is the one to beat again.

A capacity field of sprinters then do battle in the Group 1 2020 Oakleigh Plate at 4:50pm (AEDT) including the triple-figure emergency runner Vainstream (1) coming in for the scratched I Am Immortal (18).
