Early money for Mystic Journey has resulted in the inaugural All-Star Mile winner now becoming an $8 equal favourite at TAB with Melody Belle for the 2020 All-Star Mile to be run at Caulfield on Saturday, March 14.
Mystic Journey completed an amazing three-year-old season when she followed her Australian Guineas win at Flemington on March 2 with a dominant display in the first running of the world’s richest mile race at Flemington two weeks later.
Melody Belle had two runs during last month’s Melbourne Cup Carnival where she was victorious in the Empire Rose Stakes on November 2 before finishing runner-up to Magic Wand in the Mackinnon Stakes on November 9.
The Chris Waller-trained Kolding has opened $11 at TAB after taking out the TAB Epsom at Randwick on October 5 and the first running of the Golden Eagle at Rosehill on November 2.
Te Akau Shark also opened $11 after experiencing a luckless spring campaign in Australia.
The New Zealand gelding was second in the Tramway Handicap to Dreamforce at Randwick on September 7, runner-up to Kolding in the TAB Epsom and third to Lys Gracieux and Castelvecchio in the Cox Plate.
