He has run second the last two years running with Mackintosh also running third in 2016, no question it is a key target race for Sydney's biggest stable.
Four-year-old Kolding heads his assault and appears very well placed off the back of his win in the Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap [1400m], the same path Boban took en-route to his victory in 2013.
On that occasion he was beaten 3.5L and now meets Dreamforce 7kg better off at the weights.
Worth noting 4YOs have won 13 of the last 20 (65%), while providing just 37% of the participants.
Rated 118 by Timeform, Kolding has certainly beaten the handicapper and Glen Boss knows how to get it done.
Boss has carried 52kg or less 13 times this century (in either Epsoms or Doncasters) for five wins and two placings.
The middle draw allows him to get into a good spot and with even luck, he should prove very hard to beat.
Sticking with the Chris Waller stable earlier in the day and while he is only 1/17, confident Dealmaker is airborne and can break through in the third event.
Barriers have been his worst enemy this preparation, he ran the best sixth you've ever seen last start.
Finally draws a barrier on Saturday and should be right at his peak racing fourth up.
JMac sticks aboard and have him settling a lot closer to the speed on Saturday.
If he gets the splits at the right time, he should be too strong late.
