Trainer Tony McEvoy had to withdraw Big Memory on Friday morning after he discovered inflammation in one of the stayer’s hocks paving the way for Mike Moroney’s French import to sneak in the field.

The scratching of Big Memory followed the withdrawal yesterday of Kiwi mare Fanatic because of a suspected spider bite allowing first emergency De Little Engine to take his place in the field.

Vengeur Masque is the winner of two races from six starts in France and had been placed once from three starts for Moroney since arriving in Australia.

At his latest start Vengeur Masque ran fourth to Almandin in the Group 3 $300,000 The Bart Cummings (2500m) at Flemington on October 2.

Crown Oaks winner Jameka sits at the top of the Caulfield Cup market order at $3.60 at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of English stayer Scottish and the Darren Weir trained Real Love at $7.50 and German stayer Articus at $9.50.
