* Murray Baker, who trains Bonneval in partnership with Andrew Forsman, is aiming for his fifth Underwood win. Along with Bonneval (2017) he won with It’s A Dundeel (2013), Lion Tamer (2011), The Phantom (1990)

* Appleby is aiming for his second Melbourne Group One win after Jungle Cat’s Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes victory last weekend

* Grunt is chasing his first win on his home track at Caulfield having won two Group One races at Flemington

WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“We want to see an improvement in her. We’ll be happy to see her finish a lot closer” – Bonneval’s co-trainer Murray Baker

“He is a winner of the Group One Jebel Hatta at Meydan, and I think the Australian style of racing will suit him. He travelled over fine and has settled in well at Werribee” – Blair House’s trainer Charlie Appleby

“Michael Walker rode him in a gallop at Flemington on Tuesday and said he felt sharp so I’m hoping he can bounce back to form on Sunday” – Comin’ Through’s trainer Chris Waller
