Queenstown ($4) stepped up from a mile and thrashed rivals in the Grafton Cup over 2350m last time out.
She may find it difficult dropping back to 1500m here, but she is prepared by a master conditioner in Gai Waterhouse.
Queenstown ($4) has a touch of class and may be ready to shine in better company this campaign.
Scream Machine ($4) has never raced better and loves this track, where he has five wins and five thirds from 11 attempts.
He has the 59kg steadier, but he will be competitive, as will rising Team Cummings-trained mare Romantic Moon ($4.8), which has the tactical speed to put herself into the race.
