The 2016 Todman Stakes field has been released and four undefeated colts as well as two of the most promising juveniles in the country are set to do battle in the Group 2 event at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Capitalist went straight to the top of Golden Slipper betting markets after he made his racing debut with a very comfortable win in the Listed Breeders’ Plate (1000m) at Royal Randwick on October 3 and he lost no admirers with his wins in the Wyong Magic Millions (1100m) on December 17 and the $2 million Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 9.

The Written Tycoon colt was sent for a stint in the spelling paddock following his Magic Millions victory, but he was tuned up for the Todman Stakes with a barrier trial over 837 metres at Royal Randwick on February 19.

Capitalist is joined in the Todman Stakes field by stablemate Defcon, but at this stage the son of Choisir is set to contest the Black Opal Stakes at Canberra on Sunday.

Another trainer with multiple runners in the 2016 Todman Stakes field is John O’Shea, who has included both Astern and Tessera in the entries for the $300,000 event.

Astern made his racing debut with a very comfortable victory in the Surf Meets Turf Plate (1000m) at Royal Randwick on December 5 and he returned to the races with a win in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on February 20.

Tessera scored a narrow win in the Agribaba Plate (1100m) at Royal Randwick on January 16 and he stamped himself as a legitimate Golden Slipper contender when he beat Defcon to take out the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on January 30.

One of the most interesting horses in the 2016 Todman Stakes field is Kiss And Make Up, who is owned by John Singleton and trained by Gai Waterhouse.

Kiss And Make Up impressed in barrier trials in the lead-up to his racing debut and he justified the hype to upstage Detective and Star Of Monsoon to take out the Maiden Plate at Canterbury on February 17.

The Todman Stakes field is rounded out by Paul Messara-trained Weatherly, who will make his Sydney racing debut in the Group 2 event.

Weatherly blew the start and had no luck when he made his racing debut in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) at Caulfield on January 26, but he showed what he was capable of when he recorded a very impressive victory in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) at Flemington on February 20.

The Todman Stakes has produced two of the past four winners of the Golden Slipper, in the form of Pierro in 2012 and Vancouver in 2015.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
