The two star mares will be aiming to emulate the deeds of a quality group of females, including Devil Moon (2007), Makybe Diva (2005), Sunline (2001), Let’s Elope (1991) and Just Now (1986) to have claimed the feature race in the past 30 years.

Lucia Valentina has been installed the $5.00 favourite with Sportsbet after recording a dazzling first-up victory in the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m), followed by a fast-finishing 2.6 lengths 6th behind Sacred Falls in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m).

The Roger James-trained Silent Achiever ($6) is sure to improve after two runs this campaign and looks suited stepping up to 2000m after recording win in the Group 1 NZ Stakes and Group 1 Ranvet Stakes over the trip during the autumn.

The 2013 Turnbull Stakes runner-up Puissance De Lune is on the third line of betting at $6.50 and will be looking to go one better this year after being bloused by Happy Trails in last year’s event.

The ghostly grey has shown improvement at each of his three runs this campaign and will be looking to give trainer Darren Weir his second consecutive Group 1 win after Trust In A Gust secured a narrow victory in last Saturday’s Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Last start Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) winner Foreteller is next in line at $7.50 and is one of two chances for Sydney trainer Chris Waller who also has Who Shot Thebarman ($21).

The David Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Crackerjack King ($8) has put himself into calculation with a bold front-running display that nearly came off in the Underwood.

The son of Shamardal booted 3 lengths clear in the straight but just ran out of condition as Foreteller and Happy Trails swooped late.

Reigning Turnbull Stakes champ Happy Trails is an $8.50 and is the only other horse under double figures as he aims for back-to-back wins in the $500,000 feature, with the last horse to achieve the rare feat being Vo Rogue (1987-88).
