Group 1 winners Foxplay, Global Glamour and Silent Sedition sit at the top of the field for the mares and have shared mixed fortunes at the barrier draw.

The Chris Waller trained Foxplay came up with barrier four with Kerrin McEvoy to ride, taking over from Hugh Bowman who was on board last start when fourth to Happy Clapper in the Group 1 $1m Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on September 30.

Global Glamour at sixteen and Silent Sedition at eighteen will move in two spots at start time if both the emergencies fail to gain a start.

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Global Glamour will be first up in the Tristrac Stakes with Tim Clark booked to ride, not having been to the races since running second to Derryn in the Group 2 $600,000 Arrowfield 3yo Sprint (1200m) at Randwick on April 8.

Katelyn Mallyon’s mount Silent Sedition will be fitter for one run back from a spell and the Andrew Noblet trained mare was beaten less than two lengths when fifth to Keen Array in the Group 2 $200,000 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on October 7.

Foxplay has been installed as the $4.80 favourite for the Tristarc Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au just ahead of Silent Sedition at $5 with Ravi at $7.50 just shading Global Glamour at $8.

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Ravi has drawn barrier seventeen in the original draw with Hugh Bowman booked to ride.

The Redoute’s Choice mare is fitter for two runs back from a spell for a first up win in the Group 3 $125,000 Irresistible Pools Sheraco Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on September 9 followed by a third to Tristarc Stakes rival Savanna Amour in the Group 3 $150,000 Ladbrokes Odds Boost Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on September 23.
