HRV have only been advised of two qualifiers thus far who do not intend on taking their place in the final 20, this includes NZ Harness Jewels Ruby winner Charlemagne, and Prince Eddie from WA who took out the Discreet Romeo Sprint in February.

Seventeen qualifiers have so far secured a position in the final 20. In order of stakes earned over the past 12 months they are:

HRV handicappers also have the option of choosing to use a Wildcard if they believe a worthy horse has failed to qualify. Last year Dreamit was issued a Wildcard into the event after taking out the Trotters Free For All on Grand Prix night.

Recent performances that will no doubt come under consideration for Wildcard entry  include  Flying Isa - taking the Australasian Trotters Mile record, Swedish bred emerging star Cardigan Boko - in taking seven victories from his last eight starts and Aleppo Midas who is showing plenty of ability.

Much could happen over the final two weeks to determine the starting 20 and to keep up to date on all current information visit www.greatsouthernstar.com.au
