Six of the 10 runners in Wednesday’s Group 2 $300,000 Geelong Cup are imported gallopers. The exceptions are Lloyd Williams’ Tanby, Ciaron Maher’s veteran Moudre, Bryce Stanaway’s Crafty Cruiser and David Hayes’ Warwarick.

Australians will get their first look at recently arrived import Forgotten Voice, who will make his Aussie debut in the Cup, and trainer Nicky Henderson has already booked gun international rider Brett Prebble.

Peter Moody has brought Ibicenco back to Melbourne after his flop in The Metropolitan and Team Hawkes will try and resurrect the career of Polish Knight, a one-time Australian Derby runner-up who appears to have lost his way in recent seasons.
