A total of 24 nominations have been received for Saturday’s Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

Last year’s winner Begood Toya Mother has been entered as he chases back-to-back wins in the race. Trained by Daniel Bowman, the six-year-old gelding has raced twice this campaign for a fourth in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) and sixth in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) won by Behemoth.

The David Jolly-trained five-year-old gelding Behemoth has also been entered after his brilliant win in the Memsie Stakes. Prior to that win, Behemoth had resumed with a win over Dalasan in the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville.

WA trainers Grant and Alana Williams have two horses nominated for the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes. The first is five-year-old gelding Showmanship who has won seven of his eight starts. He was last seen winning the Listed Bendigo Bank Stakes (1200m) at The Valley. Their second runner is four-year-old gelding Superstorm who finished ninth in the Group 3 The Heath 1100 Stakes (1100m).

Michael Moroney’s five-year-old gelding Buffalo River has been nominated for the race. A winner of six from 10 starts, Buffalo River won back-to-back 1400m races at Caulfield and Sandown Lakeside respectively in April and May.

Other key nominations include Age Of Chivalry, Cascadian, I Am Superman and Tagaloa.
