The first of the metropolitan two-year-old races begin on Saturday and if recent history is anything to go by we may see the 2013 Golden Slipper winner.

The last two winners, Pierro and Sepoy, made their debuts on this weekend with Pierro winning the Breeders’ Plate (1000m) at Randwick and Sepoy taking out the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (1000m) at Flemington.

Nineteen colts and geldings have been entered for the Breeders’ Plate while 12 juveniles have been nominated for the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes.

A further 15 entries have been made for the Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) for fillies and as expected Gai Waterhouse has a strong hand across the events.

The high profile Sydney trainer has three entered for the Breeders’ plate, two for the Gimcrack and has sent recent trial winner Rockford to Melbourne for the Maribyrnong Trial.

Among the most interesting of her brigade to debut this weekend is War who was bought for $500,000 as a yearling and is a three-quarter brother to stable star More Joyous.

War won his trial ahead of fellow Breeders’ Plate nomination Mr Jackman while Gimcrack entrants Sugar Rush and Shahad were both impressive when winning trials last month.

Peter Snowden, who trained Sepoy to four Group 1 victories, has entered colts Champollion and Kuroshio for the Breeders’ Plate and the Maribyrnong Trial respectively as well as trial-winning filly Guelph for the Gimcrack.

Paul Messara’s stable star Ortensia may be nearing the end of her career but he may unearth a replacement this weekend with colts Chosen Idol and Havana both entered for the Breeders’ Plate.
