We've Got This heads to the Aurie's Star first up at Flemington

We take a look at each runner of the G3 Aurie's Star Handicap to be run at Flemington on Saturday August 12. It's a field with plenty of quality, including G1 winners Hey Doc and I Am A Star
1. Hey Doc
Class runner having taken out the G1 Australian Guineas in March of this year. The query is the 1200m, but showed he can compete with the best over sprint trips when only being beaten 2.5L in the G1 Goodwood at Morphettville. Good fresh record and should feature in the finish.

2. I Am A Star
The second of the G1 winners, having taken out the 2016 Myer Classic. Has yet to have tasted defeat at Flemington, winning all three of her starts here. The big query is the weight, a 4yo mare giving weight to most of the field is big impost, she's got plenty of class though.

3. Grande Rosso
Get the feeling that the Hayes, Hayes, Dabernig team have this bloke ready to go first up. Looked really sharp in a recent jump out at Flemington and there has been plenty of early support.

4. We've Got This
