This is a very strong card in its own right and a number of Group 1 contenders will be in action in the Lonhro Plate, Eskimo Prince Stakes and the Breeders Classic.

There have been a number of key scratchings ahead of the Breeders Classic meeting and the removal of star filly Omei Sword caused some major changes to the 2017 Eskimo Prince Stakes betting market.

Omei Sword was withdrawn from the Eskimo Prince Stakes after she was found with a slight muscle issue, but trainer Chris Waller is hopeful that she will be able to return to the races for the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) next weekend.
