Multiple weight-for-age winner Contributer heads what is expected to be a strong field for the Underwood Stakes at Caulfield.
Acceptances for the Group One Underwood (1800m) and the Group One Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) will be taken on Wednesday.
The Underwood attracted 16 nominations including Makybe Diva Stakes winner Fawkner and popular Tasmanian galloper The Cleaner who won his second-straight Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes earlier this month.
A big field is anticipated for the Sir Rupert Clarke with 27 entries taken for the race which has a field limit of 18.
Disposition is the early favourite ahead of acceptances.
Trainer Darren Weir, who won the Rupert Clarke Stakes last year with Trust In A Gust, has Lucky Hussler and Stratum Star in the mix.
Saturday’s meeting also features the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and the Thousand Guineas Prelude, lead-ups to the Group One events for three-year-olds two weeks later.
