The James Cummings trained Prized Icon, with Dean Yendall booked to ride, has drawn barrier three in the final field of sixteen plus three emergencies and could jump from gate two if third reserve Hardham, who drew the rails, fails to gain a start.

Prized Icon is also an acceptor for the Group 1 $1m Girvan Waugh Randwick Guineas (1600m) which is going to be run a heavy track at Randwick on Saturday.

Priced Icon has visited Flemington on one previous occasion for a win in the Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington during the 2017 Melbourne Spring Carnival and has had one run back in the 2017 Autumn for a sixth to Man From Uncle in the Group 2 $400,000 Schweppes Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on February 18.

Divine Prophet has drawn barrier ten with Dwayne Dunn teaming up again with the Team Hawkes trained colt after the pair claimed the Group 1 $1m Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield during the 2016 Spring Carnival before resuming in the Autumn for a ninth to Black Heart Bart in the Group 1 $500,000 Ladbrokes C.F.

As well as Seaburge, the team will saddle up Snitzson (Andrew Mallyon, barrier 5), Harlow Gold (Regan Bayliss, 7) and Fuhryk (Cory Parish, 14).

The Tony McEvoy trained Hey Doc has been racing consistently since running third in the Caulfield Guineas and put himself into contention for the Australian Guineas with a last start win in the C S Hayes Stakes.

    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you
    could space it out better?
