Newcastle Cup (2300m) & Wyong Gold Cup (2100m) winner Durston heads the market for the Group One Metropolitan (2400m) at $3.80 with bookmaker TopSport.

The seven-year-old son of Sea The Moon looks for three wins straight and is clearly the in-form stayer of the race who looks well suited stepping up to this Group One assignment.

Australian Derby runner-up Benaud ($4.60) is the only other runner in the market at single figures, last seen running second to Alegron in the Kingston Town Stakes (2000m).

Cadre Du Noir ($11) narrowly missed in last week's Colin Stephen Quality (2400m), while Stockman ($11) looks to be peaking fourth-up.

Surefire ($13) will need the rain to stay away to be a factor, while Grove Ferry ($14) & Mankayan ($14) are the next best in the market.

The Metropolitan Winners

The Metropolitan was first run in 1863 and has remained as one of Australia’s biggest staying races, despite not having the quality of the Sydney and Melbourne Cups.

Run at Royal Randwick over 2400m, 'The Metrop' is the premier staying race of the Sydney Spring Carnival and this major often attracts a competitive field.

Come Play With Me (2019), Mirage Dancer (2020) and Montefilia (2021) have won the last three editions of The Metropolitan.
