Despite falling just short of victory in last Saturday's Blamey Stakes, Fifty Stars will be following a familiar pattern which saw him take out the 2020 edition of this race.

The six-year-old prevailed off a a seven day turnaround and out of the same event, secured his first Group One in the process while he has drawn barrier three in the 2021 Australian Cup.

After a frustrating back-end to his last autumn which followed on to a spring campaign when going winless from six outings, Shared Ambition broke a drought when prevailing first-up at Randwick and arrives to this feature off a second in the Group Two Peter Young Stakes.

This Chris Waller-trained import will jump from gate two this Saturday under Mark Zahra.

It will be a big step up in class for the in-form Defibrillate (barrier four) who rebounded from a frustrating dead-heat to win comfortably on February 20.

Harlem (barrier seven) is a dual winner of the Australian Cup (2018, 2019) and with Humidor (barrier 12) makes it a total of three past winners of this race to be participating in 2021.

A total of 17 runners have accepted for the 2021 Australian Cup.
