The Yulumba 162 might be a new name but the talent pool is just like it has always been in the Autumn Classic.
Betting markets are starting to really pick up with the money coming in for a couple of horses in particular.
The Bart Cummings trained Kim Divine is the current favourite with online bookmakers Luxbet at $3.30.
With two wins a second from the last three starts this horse looks the goods but with all seven career starts coming without a genuine spell who knows how long he can keep going.
Second is Almindoro which is coming off a good win last start at Moonee Valley and sits at $4.40 fixed.
The impressive Domesky is next at $6.50 which has only missed a placing once in his entire career and is coming off a last start victory.
Elusive King is the last horse inside single figures and you can grab $8 fixed for the horse with a win and two placings so far this preparation.
Those who like a bit of lineage will find I Think I Do from Redoute’s Choice paying a very healthy $19 after failing in the last start Autumn Stakes.
For those chasing value there are two horses not without a hope at $16 each, number 11 Second Draw and number 9 Clemente have both shown quality form in past runs.
At the top of the field though we’re going for a small upset saying Domesky will get the better of the favourite Kim Divine.
For third we think the Danny O’Brien trained New Zealand horse Meaisin is a lot better than the $12 currently on offer and should be in the mix in the final 100m.
