Avienus and Toorak Toff will be differently today.

The Group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) top weight Avienus will be ridden quieter if circumstances permit.

Connections have advised Racing Victoria stewards of the new tactics that will be adopted at Flemington..

Avienus settled in the top six in the Cox Plate but weakened before the turn.

In her best run this spring, the Mark Webb trained six-year-old was further back in a field of nine in the Caulfield Stakes and finished best when second to Descarado.

Toorak Toff, in the Group 1 $1m Emirate Stakes (1600m), will be ridden more forward from the good draw in in five.

He was ridden near the tail in the TAB.Com.au Stakes(1400m)at Flemington last Saturday and finished well for third.

The greatest worry for Toorak Toff is running out a strong 1600m.

Jockeys Damien Oliver and Corey Brown will not ride today.
