All Too Hard can continue the domination of three year olds in this season’s big Weight For Age races when he contests the All Aged Stakes at Randwick on Saturday. Having already beaten Victoria’s best gallopers in the Orr Stakes and Futurity at the top level during this preparation, Black Caviar’s half-brother faces a stiff challenge in what will be the 12th and final start of his career in Australia.
Darley three year-old Epaulette made a slashing reappearance when running on to finish second behind Black Caviar in the TJ Smith a fortnight ago and will give this race a shake although All Too Hard was more than two lengths in front of him when the pair met in the Caulfield Guineas in October. Eight time Group One winner More Joyous had no luck in the Queen Of The Turf at her last start and will look for redemption in this race, twelve months to the day after her last top level success in the Queen Elizabeth.
2010 Doncaster Mile winner Rangirangdoo begins his preparation in this event, while Melbourne Cup runner-up Fiorente , Rain Affair , Rolling Pin and Victorian visitor Smokin’ Joey complete the field.
