Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente and Cox Plate winner Shamus Award headline a nine-horse field for Saturday’s Group One Australian Cup at Flemington.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained Fiorente has come up with barrier eight in the 2000m weight-for-age race while last week’s Australian Guineas winner Shamus Award has drawn barrier four.
The 2012 Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon has the outside barrier and is one of two entries for owner Lloyd Williams along with Mourayan who will jump from barrier two.
Imported mare Voleuse De Coeurs heads into the Australian Cup first-up and has the inside barrier, while trainer Anthony Cummings has decided to run three-year-old Thunder Fantasy after a fast-finishing third to Shamus Award in the Australian Guineas.
He has barrier three with Mark Zahra to ride.
