Outrageous ($6) for Hawkes Racing and jockey Tommy Berry and Through The Cracks ($6) for Gosford trainer Angela Davies and jockey Robbie Dolan are next in betting.

Godolphin runner Ranier ($8.50) ridden by Hugh Bowman is aiming to become only the second horse in more than 70 years to win consecutive Festival Stakes.

In the Listed $140,000 ATC Cup, Bonvicini for top jockey Kerrin McEvoy and trainers Ciaron Maher and David Eustace heads TAB markets at $4 in another competitive betting race.

Jockey Tim Clark is looking to win his third consecutive $140,000 Schweppes Starlight Stakes aboard the Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou-trained Villami ($8).
