The final field to contest the inaugural running of The TAB Phoenix (525m) has been determined.

The $1.145m event will be staged at The Meadows on Saturday December 18 with the all important box draw to be decided on Sunday.

Race sponsor TAB have superstar sprinter Aston Rupee as the $2.10 pre-box draw favourite.

The son of Kc And All returns to The Meadows which was the scene of his Group 1 Topgun triumph last month where he’ll match motors with Koblenz, the Melbourne Cup hero representing SEN.

A solid $3.20 second favourite in pre-box draw markets, Koblenz will become the highest stakes winner in the sport’s history if he annexes Saturday week’s $750,000 first prize.

Sharing the third line of betting at $8 is exciting up and coming bitches True Collinda and Wow She’s Fast.

True Collinda will represent the TAB while Wow She’s Fast will line-up for Sportsbet.

Multiple group winner Jungle Deuce, representing GRNSW, is quoted at $10 and has the benefit of experience at The Meadows under his belt for trainer Jack Smith.

Queensland rep Spotted Elk and WA rep Vice Grip are both $26 chances currently while rank outsider Billy Creek is $101.
