Mustajeer (GB) has been allotted the topweight in the race with 58.0kg.

He is the winner of the 2019 Ebor Handicap (2787m) at York (GB) as well as running 2nd in the WFA Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) behind Verry Elleegant at Rosehill Gardens.

Next in the weights with 57.0kg is Finche (GB) who has an excellent record over the staying distances.

This includes a 7th beaten only 1.4L in the 2019 Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington and a 5th beaten only 1.6L in the 2019 Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

His most recent run was 3rd beaten only 0.7L 1st up in the WFA Group 2 Chelmsford (1600m) at Randwick.

Young Rascal (Fr) and Mugatoo (Ire) will be asked to carry 56.0kg this year - both are very lightly raced with exceptional records that include wins both in Australia and overseas.

Etah James (NZ) is the highest rated mare and will be asked to carry 53.5kg. This represents a 2kg penalty on weight carried when most recently winning the 2020 Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Royal Randwick.
