Dalasan was a $2.50 favourite before barriers were drawn but eased quickly to $3 after drawing gate 18 in the 19-strong field.

He will come in three gates if the three emergencies fail to gain a start.

Dalasan was victorious in the Danehill Stakes at Flemington on September 14 before finishing second to Alligator Blood in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude on September 29.

The unbeaten Alligator Blood – drawn barrier 13  – has drifted from $5.50 to $6 while Kubrick – barrier 17  – is out from $6 to $6.50.

Super Seth (barrier 5) finished fifth in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and has shortened from $13 to $11 along with Express Pass (barrier 8).

Subedar – runner-up in the Dulcify Stakes at Rosehill on September 14 and Gloaming Stakes at Rosehill on September 28 – was $51 before final acceptances but is now a $13 chance after drawing gate 7.

Flit, an unlucky ninth in the Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield on September 29, is the $2 favourite to win Saturday's Thousand Guineas ahead of Blue Diamond winner Lyre and Missile Mantra both $7.

This year's Stradbroke Handicap winner Trekking is the $2.80 favourite to win Saturday's Schillaci Stakes with the winner assured of a slot in the TAB Everest at Royal Randwick on October 19.
