However the first appearance of the Chariots On Fire syndicated horse The Commander will draw a large group of owners through the turnstiles, after a number of trails the Presidential Ball 2yo who is trained by Toby Ryan and add interest to the series.

The fillies division has two interstate raiders but local start Flagbearer who claimed the Southern Cross Final last month will look to get back into the winners circle her main danger might be the other local Revered who returns from unsuccessful raid in Victoria.
