Last start Schillaci Stakes winner and pre-draw favourite Dirty Work has drawn barrier three for Friday night's sprint feature from Moonee Valley.
The son of Written Tycoon brings some strong form lines from the early spring with a third behind Gytrash fresh before a fourth-place finish in the Group Two Shorts.
Both of those events have produced the top three (Classique Legend, Bivouac and Gytrash) in The Everest on October 17.
The speedy Pippie will jump from barrier one under Damian Lane in a bid to record a third group one victory in 2020 following success in the Oakleigh Plate and most recently, The Moir Stakes.
James Cummings has accepted with Trekking (barrier seven) who is backing-up from last Saturday's Everest and the enigmatic Kementari (barrier five) who has Craig Williams in the saddle.
