TALKING POINTS

* Booker and Catchy will be attempting to become the 16th three-year-old filly to win and first since Alinghi in 2005

* Redkirk Warrior became the first horse since 1917 to win the Newmarket first-up. He became the first imported horse since Gothic (1927-28) to win and will be attempting to become first since Razor Sharp (1982-83) to win in successive years

WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“Group One handicaps in big fields are never easy to win, but I wouldn’t swap him for any other horse. He’s a high-class colt. He’s well-weighted.” – Merchant Navy’s trainer Aaron Purcell

“It’s not weight-for-age but, gee, he’s a good horse,” – topweight Redkirk Warrior’s co-trainer David Hayes

“She ran super in the Oakleigh Plate and proved herself at Group One level. Hopefully we can have a bit more luck on Saturday.” – Booker’s rider Ben Thompson

“I’ve had a bit of luck in it and Missrock looks a good chance to hopefully make it four on Saturday” – jockey Craig Newitt
