Precedence looks set to take this race, with a weight of 56.5kg and a barrier 1 start. Trained by Bart Cummings, Precedence is the winner of the 2010 Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m), having finished more than a length ahead. With just a little but of luck, a Herbert Power Stakes is well within the grasp of this gelding.
Moudre also looks to be a good chance, though he will start from barrier 9. Nevertheless, barrier position doesn’t mean much in a run as long as the Herbert Power Stakes, and Moudre will only carry 55.5kg.
What could make this race quite interesting will be the track conditions on the day. Both Precedence and Moudre are capable of performing well in the wet, which could make it a very close run indeed.
