Punters are treated to four Group status races starting with the Flight Stakes-bound fillies facing off in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (Race 4).

True Faith (10) for Friday’s Newcastle Cup winning trainer Kris Lees comes out of the 2020 Tea Rose Stakes field, which is shaping up as a two-filly affair between Hungry Heart ($2.10 @ Ladbrokes.com.au) and the Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes double winner Dame Giselle ($2.80 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

Next-up the Epsom types do battle in the Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (Race 5), the field for which is down to nine after four scratchings including the now Team Snowden-trained The Candy Man (3).

The meeting’s marquee event is the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) running as Race 6 at 3:15pm (AEST) and all seven original acceptors remain in the mix including the hot favourite Verry Elleegant ($2.35 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

Following the Group 1 there will be plenty of interest in Race 7 with a field of potential The Everest horses facing off in the Group 2 The Shorts including the resuming favourite Bivouac ($4.50 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

The last of the Black-Types and the penultimate race is then the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (Race 8) where the notable withdrawal is the in-form Paths Of Glory (9).
