Darren Weir will saddle up three of the leading four contenders in Wednesday's $125,000 Kyneton Cup (2000m).
The Weir-trained Another Coldie and Snitzepeg are joint favourites at $4.40 in early betting for the feature race.
Stablemate Pleasuring is a $6 shot, with the John McArdle-trained Smart As You Think ($5) and Kiwi raider Our Big Mike ($7.50) are the only other runners in single figures.
Another Coldie is yet to race at 2000m, but on his last start win in the Horsham Cup (1800m) the step up in distance shouldn't be a problem.
The five-year-old belted his rivals by three-and-a-half lengths to record his ninth win from 27 starts.
Snitzepeg is proven at 2000m having won over the distance in Adelaide two starts ago before running a slashing second behind stablemate Sixties Groove in the Moe Cup (2050m).
Pleasuring has been consistent without winning this preparation.
The four-year-old mare has run third at her past two starts, but this is a step up in class.
A wet track would assist the daughter of Hard Spun.
Outside the Weir stable, Smart As You Think looks the obvious danger.
The five-year-old mare has always promised to win a good race and her last start win at Randwick showed she might be in for a career-best campaign.
She has the early speed to race on the pace which is an advantage at Kyneton.
Kyneton trainer Neil Dyer will fly the flag for the locals with 2017 Darwin Cup winner Royal Request.
Now an eight-year-old, Royal Request will relish the step up to 2000m after running unplaced over 1600m on Bendigo Cup day.
Kyneton trainer Bob Challis has decided to scratch veteran mare The Donchess.
Challis prepared Criminologist to break her maiden status at Echuca on Tuesday.
Bendigo trainer Mick Sell returns to his old stomping ground with the in-form Carlingford in the final race on the program.
Carlingford is backing up from a gutsy win on Bendigo Cup day.
The five-year-old will have to overcome a wide barrier and a step up in class in the Benchmark 84 event.
Dean Holland will ride Carlingford after winning on him at Bendigo.
The Kyneton Cup meeting starts at 12.30pm, with the Cup scheduled for 4.40pm.
