MELBOURNE - Like A Carousel will try to shed his maiden tag at Caulfield on Wednesday.
But if his past six starts are anything to go by, the stayer might find one better on the day.
The Ken Keys-trained Like A Carousel is yet to win from 13 starts and been runner-up the past six times he's been to teh race.
After finishing second in all five starts last campaign, the four-year-old returned as favourite in a 1700m event at Geelong last month.
He was a 3-1/2 lengths second to subsequent Tasmanian Derby winner Liberty Leader.
Like A Carousel will be ridden by Mark Zahra in Wednesday's Salt & Pepper Maiden Plate (2000m) at Caulfield.
The Caulfield meeting starts at 2.28pm. - AAP
