All three were given 58kg for 2017 Sydney Spring Carnival feature Randwick mile when the weights were released today by the Racing New South Wales Handicapping Panel.

The Darren Weir trained Australian Cup winner Humidor was back in the winner’s stall last Saturday with a breathtaking victory in the Group 1 $750,000 PFD Food Services Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington, beating the James Cummings trainer Hartnell with the Weir trained Black Heart Bart running his usual honest race to finish third.

The Kris Lees trained Le Romain also went around in the Makybe Diva Stakes but failed to fire and was a well beaten eleventh.

The Lindsay Park trained Vega Magic is next in the weights with 57kg and is racing in outstanding fashion with wins from his last four starts, including two at Group 1 level.

The former West Australian trained galloper scored a first up win for David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig in the Group 1 $1m Darley Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville on May 20 and then resumed after a break to win the Listed $120,000 Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 19.

The five year old chestnut kept the winning momentum going with a resounding victory in the Group 1 $1m New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on September 2.

The Pat Webster trained Happy Clapper gained automatic entry into the Epsom Handicap with his win in the Group 2 $200,000 Tattersalls Club Tramway Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on September 2 and has been given 56.5kg for the feature Randwick Mile.

Happy Clapper continued on with his good form when a creditable second to Winx in last Saturday’s Group 1 $500,000 Colgate Optic White Stakes (George Main Stakes) (1600m) at Randwick.

Also exempt from the ballot is the Gerald Ryan trained Deploy for his win in the Group 2 $200,000 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill on September 9 and has been given 54kg for The Epsom Handicap.

The Chris Waller trained Comin’ Through is another to miss the ballot because of his win in the Group 3 $150,000 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) at Randwick last Saturday and has the light weight of 50kg to contend with.

Vega Magic’s stablemate Redkirk Warrior retuned to the race track in dynamic form with a win last Saturday down the Flemington straight in the Group 2 $200,000 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) and has been allocated 56kg for the Epsom Handicap.

Waller has a very strong contingent for the 2017 Epsom Handicap and as well as Comin’ Through, also has Group 1 winners Foxplay (54kg), Egg Tart (50.5kg) and Good Prospect (52kg) among his thirteen Epsom Handicap hopefuls.

Final acceptances for the Epsom Handicap will be taken at 9am on Wednesday, September 27, 2017.
