* European Godolphin galloper Jungle Cat is aiming to become first since Trust In A Gust in 2014 to win Sir Rupert Clarke-Toorak Handicap double

WHAT THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING:

“He’s back up to 59 kilograms but I think that against those horses he’s very capable of being competitive with them at that weight” – Hartnell’s trainer James Cummings

“I’m confident the barrier beat him last time. He came from gate 13 and just had to press forward and it fired him up for a furlong” – Dollar For Dollar’s trainer Tony McEvoy

“He’s a lightweight chance. There looks like there will be good speed on and he should just camp behind them and then hopefully he just gets a bit of luck” – Radipole’s trainer Mike Moroney

“”I thought he hit a bit of a flat spot in the Epsom around 200 metres out but in the last 100 metres when I could get at him again he really came on. That’s what I really liked, he was doing his best work late and hopefully he can do the same again on Saturday” – Muraaqeb’s jockey Cory Parish
