* Dissident trying to win beyond 1600m for first time.

RACE ANALYSIS

PATTERN: Crackerjack King led Underwood last start and again likely to go forward from wide gate. Side Glance can also take up frontrunning role. Dissident should take sit off the speed while Criterion and Fawkner won’t be too far away. Foreteller a backmarker.

FANCIED RUNNERS: Open race with 10 individual Group One winners, many using Caulfield Stakes as final Cox Plate lead-up. Sacred Falls slight favourite over Dissident who is a query at 2000m. Happy Trails expected to bounce back after trainer unhappy with Turnbull Stakes ride last week.

BEST OF THE OUTSIDERS: Australian Derby winner Criterion unsuited by leader-dominated race in Sydney last start while Kirramosa gets to suitable distance for first time this campaign. Foreteller likes the track and is a three-time Caulfield winner.

COX PLATE GUIDE: With five of top 10 horses in Cox Plate betting running in Caulfield Stakes, it will have major bearing on markets for Moonee Valley feature.
