Hawkes Racing-trained colt Star Turn is the early favourite to take out the Group Two Run To The Rose.
The San Domenico Stakes winner is rated a $3.80 chance for Saturday’s race over 1200m at Rosehill, ahead of Peter and Paul Snowden-trained colt Mediterranean who is $4.80.
Impending is the shortest of four Godolphin nominations at $5 with stablemate Astern on the next line of betting at $6.
Winx’s sibling El Divino, trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, opened at $8 but has been wound into $5.50.
The races shapes as Astern and El Divino’s first start since they could not be separated in a photo-finish to the Group Three Kindergarten Stakes at Randwick in April.
Chris Waller-trained colts Cellarman and Nikitas are at $35 and $61 respectively.
Late entries for the Run To The Rose close on Tuesday morning.
The race is a lead-up to next month’s $1 million Golden Rose (1400m).
Star Turn is $8 to win the Group One race at Rosehill on September 10 with stablemate Divine Prophet $6 favourite after a dashing win in the Up And Coming Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.
El Divino, Impending and Mediterranean are all $11 hopes for the Golden Rose.
