Saturday’s Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) at Flemington has attracted 23 nominations.

The Adam Trinder-trained five-year-old mare Mystic Journey has been entered for Saturday’s $1 million feature. The former Australian Guineas (1600m) and All-Star Mile (1600m) winner returned to form last start with victory in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) at The Valley.

Thousand Guineas (1600m) winner Odeum also headlines the list of nominations for the Empire Rose Stakes. Trained by Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr, the three-year-old filly scored by almost two lengths in the Thousand Guineas at Caulfield on October 10.

Another important nomination is Chris Waller’s four-year-old mare Funstar who finished second behind Probabeel in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m). During the autumn, Funstar was second in the Group 1 Coolmore Legacy Stakes (1600m).
