Realm Of Flowers caught the eye in the Manion Cup, rattling home as the eventual runner-up in that 2400m event on March 27.

The daughter of So You Think has had one start over 3200m, finishing second in the 2020 Sandown Cup and has drawn barrier eight in the 2021 Sydney Cup.

Winning the Manion Cup on Australian debut was the William Haggas-trained Favorite Moon who will jump from barrier three under Kerrin McEvoy.

Last Saturday's Chairman Stakes winner Quick Thinker (barrier 14) joins stable mate The Chosen One (barrier 16) who will carry the top weight of 56kg.

A final field of 16 have accepted for the 2021 Sydney Cup.
