Two-time Group 1 winner Stanley Road has drawn box five in Saturday night’s Group 1 Topgun Stayers (725m) at The Meadows.
The Mark Gatt-trained son of Allen Deed capped off his preparations for the $75,000-to-the-winner invitation with a slick 600 metre trial at The Meadows on Monday night, carving out 34.23.
In an extremely open edition to the race, new kid on the block Zac’s Entity will exit box eight at his first crack at Group 1 company while Sydney Cup winner Miss Ezmae has come up with the prized rails alley.
The Jeff Britton-trained group 3 winners Hank The Hustler and Mepunga Ruby have drawn boxes four and six respectively while NSW raiders Zipping Niseko and Super Estrella will exit boxes three and seven.
Gypsy Wyong, which goes around in the Group 1 Hume Cup at The Meadows on Monday night, has drawn box two.
