Eight Group 1 winners headline the nominations for Saturday’s Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

Last year’s winner Mystic Journey tops the list, installed as a $4 favourite in early markets, ahead of Bob Peters’ pair Regal Power and Arcadia Queen at $5 on the second line of betting.

Damian Lane has been booked for the ride on Arcadia Queen, after WA cult hero William Pike opted to ride Regal Power on Saturday.

Other big names among the nominations include Turnbull Stakes winner Kings Will Dream, Futurity Stakes winner Streets Of Avalon, Caulfield Stakes winner Cape Of Good Hope, and the two previous VRC Oaks winners, Aristia and Miami Bound.

Elsewhere on the card, talented three-year-olds Hard Landing, Hydro Star, Larimer Street, and Rulership are set to clash in the Group 3 Vain Stakes, taken out by star sprinter Bivouac last year.

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
