The Guineas Prelude also looks likely to attract a capacity field, with 20 nominations including Cluster, Eclair Big Bang, Fast ‘N’ Rocking, Long John and Romantic Touch.
Ryan also has chasing an elusive Group 1 success with brilliant mare Snitzerland in the $450,000 Moir Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.
Snitzerland is resuming in the Moir but she trialled impressively at Rosehill this month and the mare does have an outstanding first-up record.
“She arrived in Melbourne (yesterday) morning and handled the trip well,” Ryan said.
“This is going to be a very good race but she is in with a great chance. She has won at Moonee Valley previously so she knows the course.”
The Moir Stakes has attracted a crack entry of 12 top sprinters including six individual Group 1 winners – Bel Sprinter, Epaulette, Linton, Moment Of Change, Red Tracer and Samaready.
