WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“If he can’t be highly competitive on Saturday at weight-for-age then he’s just not a weight-for-age horse” – Begood Toya Mother’s trainer Daniel Bowman

“I think he is up to the better three-year-olds, it’s just a matter of whether he’s going to be up to the better weight-for-age horses” – Alabama Express’ trainer Mike Moroney

“That run in the Australia Stakes has improved him. It’s tightened him up a bit and I’m looking forward to seeing him back at 1400 metres and seeing what he can do for us” Hey Doc’s co-trainer Tony McEvoy.

“He trialled up really nicely last week, he’s run around Caulfield before, he’s been in big fields at his past two starts, so I think he’ll run a really nice race fresh up” – Mirage Dancer’s co-trainer Natalie Young
