A small but select field of 10 has been finalised to contest the $2 million 2020 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) on Saturday at Flemington.

Opening favourite is Arcadia Queen, who put in a brave performance when finishing fifth in the Cox Plate (2040m).

On the second line of betting is kiwi mare Melody Belle, who has returned to Australia after racking up back-to-back Group 1 wins in New Zealand. She flew home to finish second behind Magic Wand in this race last year.

Mugatoo, who finished fourth in the Cox Plate is also prominent in the market, with Fifty Stars the other runner in single figures.
