Chief opposition is expected from Joe Hundertpfund's White Sportscoat, a strong second-place finisher last time out with Ross Wolfenden driving, trainer Lauren Allen's Public Enemy, a winner last time out handled by Vic Kirby, and Ben Stafford's Maximum Terror and Ben Stafford Jr., primed for a top effort.

The rest of the field is made up by Vince Copeland owned, trained and driven Casino Bags from the rail with Heather Minton's Cherokee Hunter piloted by Justin Vincent alongside. Drawing outside posts are Darrell and Dillon Lewis' TR Kilowatt Sam and George Dennis, Shrew Magoo with Tony Morgan driving for Rich Zulick and Crissman Inc., posts 7 and 8 with driver Brandon Henley's JR's Midnight Cry leaving from post 9 in the second tier.
