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 race, securing his first Group One in the process and in what does look to be weaker edition of the Australian Cup in 2021, Sportsbet have installed Fifty Stars as the $4.50 favourite.

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 holds down the second line of betting at $6, ahead of Defibrillate at $9.

It will be a big step up in class for the son of Shocking, who rebounded from a frustrating dead-heat to win comfortably on February 20 and is the only other runner at a single figure price for the 2021 Australian Cup.
