The All Aged Stakes headlines the final day of the Sydney Autumn Carnival and this famous Group 1 has received a big prize money increase, with the 1400m feature now worth $1.5 million (up from $600,000).

While he's accrued close to $8 million in prize money via his short career to date, Giga Kick (barrier 11) is still trying to record his first Group 1 victory, with last year's Everest winner arriving here off a runner-up finish in the TJ Smith Stakes, which he contested second-up.

The 1400m of All Aged Stakes will be his attempt past 1200m and he gets regular rider Craig Williams back in the saddle for this third-up assignment.

1400m is the ideal distance for Jacquinot (barrier 4), a three-year that's won two Group 1's over this trip and that includes a WFA triumph via the CF Orr Stakes on February 11.

The son of Rubick has trialled at Randwick following his sixth-place finish in the Australian Guineas on March 4.

Mazu (barrier 9) is another key contender from TJ Smiith Stakes and like Giga Kick, he's another galloper that's unproved at this distance.

Wet ground remains the key for this four-year-old.

Zaaki (barrier 6) returns ahead of a Queensland campaign and the six-time Group 1 winner gets James McDonald aboard for Saturday's resumption, who has ridden the import to seven of his 14 career victories.

Last year's All Aged Stakes winner Cascadian (barrier 10) is arguably in career best form, although faces a challenge in coming back from the 2000m of the Australian Cup

The Godolphin veteran was scratched from last Saturday's Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Team Hawkes have dual representation through Bandersnatch (barrier 8) and Electric Girl (barrier 2), while the Yoshito Yahagi-trained Ho O Amazon (barrier 7) is the sole international visitor in this line up.

12 runners make up the final field for the 2023 All Aged Stake, a 1400m Group 1 that's contested under WFA conditions.

All Aged Stakes Winners

The All Aged Stakes dates all the way back to 1865 and this Group 1 has many of Australia's best ever gallopers as winners on its honor roll.

These early champions include Carbine, Wakeful, Ajax (only horse to have won three All Aged Stakes), Bernborough and Tulloch whilst some of the more recent notable victors are Rough Habit, Sunline and Atlantic Jewel.

The Group 1 All Aged Stakes was run over the mile at Royal Randwick up until 2004 when it was dropped to 1400 metres to suit those sprinters coming from the TJ Smith Stakes (1200 metres) and to also blend in with the short-course landscape of Australian racing.

Tofane (2020), Kolding (2021) and Cascadian (2022) have won the last three editions of the All Aged Stakes.
