If the Hawkes duo were to start in the Expressway they would set up a clash with the prolific Group One winner Tie the Knot. Also among the eleven entries is the Malcolm Johnston trained last start Hawkesbury Guineas winner Shags and the Gary Portelli mare Ateates.

Cheltenham will be the venue of some high class racing in Adelaide on Saturday with three stakes races on the card.
