Turnbull Stakes nominations 2015 – Protectionist tops the ratings for Turnbull Stakes

  • 24 nominations for Sunday's feature Group 1.
Ryan Moore rides Protectionist to win the Melbourne Cup

Reigning Melbourne Cup champion Protectionist has featured among 24 nominations for Sunday’s Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington.

Get up to $1000 in bonuses when signing up Crownbet*.

The six-year-old son of Monsun has failed to break through in Australia since scoring emphatically in the 2014 Melbourne Cup (3200m) but has tuned up this campaign with satisfactory runs in the Tramway Stakes (1400m) and George Main Stakes (1600m).

Stepping up to 2000m is sure to be more to his liking but being an out and out stayer, punters may not see his best until he gets back out to 3200m.

Sydney’s leading trainer, Chris Waller, has nominated seven horses for the $1 million feature and will be looking for his first win in the event with Beaten Up, Grand Marshall, Junoob, Preferment, Royal Descent, Weary and Who Shot Thebarman.

Unlucky Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) runner-up Rising Romance looks a likely contender and is one of two entries for trainers David Hayes and Tom Dabernig.

Tony McEvoy’s exciting Alpine Eagle is a dual acceptor and may head to the JRA Cup at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

Other top hopes among nominations include Dandino, Gust Of Wind, Happy Trails, Hartnell, Lucia Valentina, Set Square, Thunder Lady and Volkstok’n’barrel.
