The Charlie Appleby trained English stayer Qewy will be stepping out for his second visit to Australia after earning a start in last year’s Group 1 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington with his win in the Group 3 $300,000 Geelong Cup (2400m) at Geelong.

Qewy went on to run fourth to Almandin in the Melbourne Cup and followed that up with a win in the Listed $150,000 Ladbrokes Sandown Cup (3200m) at Sandown.

Qewy hasn’t raced since running thirteenth to Stradivarius in the Group 1 £523,000 Qatar Goodwood Cup Stakes (2 mile) at Goodwood in England on August 1 and is currently twenty second in the order of entry for the Melbourne Cup.

Kerrin McEvoy rode Qewy in his two wins during the 2016 Melbourne Spring Carnival and is back aboard the eight year old who has drawn barrier two in the seven horse Bendigo Cup field.

The Robert Hickmott trained Foundry has drawn the rails with Michael Dee keeping the ride after they combined for a win in the Group 1 $750,000 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on September 30 before a last start tenth in the Group 2 $400,000 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) at Caulfield on October 14.

Foundry is number twenty-nine in the order of entry for the Melbourne Cup following second acceptances today.

Leading Victorian trainer Darren Weir will saddle up Kiwia who is the winner of two of his three Spring Carnival outings and will be stepping up to the 2400m again following his win in the Group 3 $150,000 Priceline Pharmacy Coongy Cup (2000m) at Caulfield on October 21.

Kiwia has drawn barrier five and will be ridden again by Coongy Cup winning jockey Damian Lane.
