The $500,000 Group 1 Moet & Chandon Spring Champion has a total 10 acceptances for this Saturday at Royal Randwick.
In what's traditionally not a strong Group 1 event with this year not appearing to be too different on face value with no Group 1 winners or placegetter's in this field. There's no strong indicators with track or trip either with no horse having prevailed at Randwick or at 2000m before.
Breeding can give us a slight lead in with Redoute's Choice who sired the 2014 winner Hampton Court and has representation in this edition with the John O'Shea trained Langley. The ill fated superstar stallion High Chaparral has sired two winners of the race in It's A Dundeel (2012) and Monaco Consul (2009) and has another son looking to make it three with the favorite in Ace High.
Coral Coast will be aiming to be just the second filly since Yankee Rose became the only filly to this when she broke the duck for the females last year.
