The order of entry for the Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) for fillies and Breeders’ Plate (1000m) for the colts at Randwick on September 29 are determined by trial performances with winners and placegetters given priority.

Another I Am Invincible colt Invincible Vision, a half-brother to Golden Slipper winner Mossfun, was sold as an Easter yearling for $1.05 million. He is one of the Waterhouse/Bott entries.
The Snowden entry Rome, a colt by Pierro from Dance Card, also cost $1.05 million as a yearling and is drawn in the same heat as Stark.
I Am Invincible has the biggest number of entries with Snitzel and Exceed and Excel have six entries each.
