Classy five-year-old mare Mystic Journey has drawn barrier five for the TAB Empire Rose Stakes. After a pair of disappointing performances, the Adam Trinder-trained mare returned to form with victory in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) at The Valley.
Three-year-old filly Odeum captured the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) last start and will carry 49kg on the weekend. Jye McNeil picks up the ride at the light weight and Odeum has drawn gate seven.
Fresh off winning the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) aboard Sir Dragonet, Glen Boss will ride Nettoyer who finished ninth in the Cox Plate, beaten 9.4 lengths. Two starts ago she was second in the Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m). Nettoyer has drawn barrier eight.
