A wide-open field will race in what are expected to be perfect weather conditions.

At this stage there are just four runners in the capacity 18-horse field at single figure odds for the Cup, with the early favourite Graphic paying $5.50.

The other group one race on tomorrow's programme, the $200,000 Thorndon Mile has also attracted a capacity field, with Mighty Solomon a $5 early favourite.
