The Mike Moroney trained Alburq has been placed at his two race starts, his latest a second to Yes Yes Yes in a 1200m 2yo Plate at The Valley on December 29 and will jump from gate eight with Jordan Childs in the saddle again.

The Lindsay Park Team will saddle the debutant Exeter who has drawn barrier nine for Damien Oliver while Anthony Freedman has entered the I Am Invincible colt I Am Immortal who has drawn barrier six with Ben Melham booked to ride.

Leading trainer Darren Weir only has one runner in the Colts Blue Diamond Preview, the I Am Invincible colt Hulk, who will be ridden by Mark Zahra from gate three.
