The third of his runners is Zapurler, a last-start Echuca maiden winner.
The Mark Newnham-trained Greysful Glamour will jump from barrier one while Dark Confidant, one of two Lindsay Park-trained runners, will start from the widest gate.
Michelle Payne, who won the 2015 Melbourne Cup on Prince Of Penzance, will ride for her father Paddy aboard Miner’s Miss, a last-start Avoca maiden winner.
