Trainer James Cummings is taking the opportunity to work several of his Group One contenders on the Randwick course proper during the Breakfast with the Stars session that is an annual feature of the autumn carnival.

Also travelling from Godolphin’s Warwick Farm base with Hartnell Horseform and Kiamichi Horseform will be Golden Slipper runner-up Microphone Horseform and Tenley.


Hartnell (Hugh Bowman) and Alizee Horseform (Blake Shinn) will represent Godolphin in Saturday’s $3 million Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick while Kiamichi, Microphone and Tenley progress to 1400m in Saturday’s $1 million ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

Other contenders for the G1 races on Day One of The Championships scheduled to appear at Randwick on Tuesday morning include TJ Smith Stakes entries Sunlight Horseform and Redzel Horseform, Australian Derby runners Chapada Horseform and Arrogant Horseform and the Kiwi filly Probabeel Horseform (Sires’ Produce).

The Doncaster field is all but resolved with Oregon Day and Violate now expected to start, leaving the three-year-old Brutal on the fringe of gaining a start.

Glen Boss is booked to fly from Singapore to ride Brutal Horseform.

The 3YO has only 49kg and is strongly favoured after his last start second to Winx Horseform in the G1 George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill backed up by the big record of his age group in the Doncaster.

He is equal on the order of entry with Siege of Quebec Horseform, So Si Bon Horseform and Violate Horseform but would get priority as the race conditions state older horses are the first eliminated in the event of a ballot.

Trainer Chris Waller will be after a record-equalling seventh Doncaster Mile win with four and possibly five starters.

He plans to start I Am Serious Horseform, Life Less Ordinary Horseform, Shillelagh Horseform and Unforgotten Horseform and the Sandown Guineas winner Ringerdindingding if he can make the final line-up in a bid to draw level with Tommy Smith on the Doncaster honour roll.

Waller will resolve his Doncaster riders on Tuesday with James McDonald and Corey Brown among the riders he has on standby.

Riding engagements confirmed for the Doncaster include Orgeon’s Day (Michael Dee); Fifty Stars (Jye McNeil); Aloisia (Jay Ford); So Si Bon (Lachie King); Widgee Turf (Billy Egan); and Fundementalist (Ben Thompson).

Japanese raider Kluger Horseform brings international attention to the Doncaster.

The Group 2 winner has been working strongly at Canterbury with his trainer Tomokazu Takano due to arrive to supervise his final gallops this week.

"He has settled in very nicely," said Kluger's travelling groom Seiji Moriya. "He's eating well, drinking well. We're very happy."

Other Doncaster Mile starters include Dixie Blossoms, Le Romain, Land Of Plenty, Dreamforce and Eckstein.
