Following a disappointing Spring Carnival, Nature Strip has returned to form this preparation, recording a first-up win in the Lightning Stakes down the Flemington straight before a narrow defeat in the Challenge Stakes.

Winning the 2020 TJ Smith Stakes, the six-year-old has drawn barrier five in a bid for back-to-back victories in this Group One.

Defeating Nature Strip in track record time (Randwick 1000m) in that Challenge Stakes was Eduardo (barrier eight) who is in career best form with a dominant display in The Galaxy on Golden Slipper Day.

Star Godolphin four-year-old Bivoauc (barrier two) has been freshened-up following a fourth-place finish in the Canterbury Stakes on March 6.

The March 26 trial at Randwick was a little inconclusive from the three-time Group One winner.

Last start William Reid Stakes winner Masked Crusader (barrier seven) and three-year-old filly September Run (barrier 11) are also in the final field for the 2021 TJ Smith Stakes.
