Enbihaar and Catchy will be the main chances for the David & B Hayes & T Dabernig stable heading into TJ Smith Stakes day at Royal Randwick, with Muraaqeb, Ventura Storm and Long Leaf among the chances.
2-year-old Enbihaar was most notably runner up to Written By in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes, coming from second-last at the 400m mark to get the better of the likes of the highly rated Oohood.
The Magnus colt will go into the opening event, the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes as a $2.60 favorite ahead of Legend of Condor ($5.00) and stable-mate Ennis Hill ($5.25).
Coming off a convincing trial, Enbihaar will look to go 3 from 4 in his career having already won over the 1100m trip, as well as taking care of Ennis Hill by 6.3L last time they met. Enbihaar has drawn the extreme outside with Cory Parish to ride, a current $2.60 shot with Sportsbet.com.au.

Also drawing out wide, William Reid stakes-placed Catchy will be searching for her first win in 7 starts as she lines up as the top-weight in the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes over 1200m.
It will be the first start at the track for the Fastnet Rock filly, currently placed in 3 of 6 over the distance and winning 2. It will be a fitting return to form for the 3-year-old, who finished just 1 length off Doncaster Mile favourite Kementari when placing in the Caulfield Guineas in October last year.
Catchy has drawn barrier 12 with superstar jockey Kerrin McEvoy to ride, and is a current $7 shot with Sportsbet.com.au.
