* Godolphin has two European runners, Benbatl for Saeed bin Suroor and Blair House for Charlie Appleby

* Homesman will be attempting to become the 13th horse to claim the Underwood/Caulfield Stakes double, the latest being Ocean Park in 2012

WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“Everyone’s saying his manners are better this time and I’d have to say they are, but I think the barriers have had a lot to do with that” – Humidor’s trainer Darren Weir

“She is a very good horse but she is obviously racing against some seasoned weight for age campaigners here. However I believe she will certainly be in the finish” – Unforgotten’s trainer Chris Waller

“It’s a very competitive race and we just want him to run well and that will top him off for the Caulfield Cup” – Homesan’s co-owner Nick Williams
