* First run as a Listed race in 1988 and won by the Colin Hayes-trained Concordance

* Had a stint as a Group Three (1995-6) before being elevated to a Group Two in 1997 and a Group One in 2004

WHAT SOME OF THE KEY PLAYERS ARE SAYING

"Went out and matured into a nice big strong filly, trained well and continued to train well and stay sound" - Darren Weir on Amphitrite

"She has come right at the right time and she's racing in superb form. I think she'll be very competitive if not extremely hard to beat" - Gai Waterhouse on Shumookh

"If she can just have a soft run somewhere she's going to be hard to beat" - Wayne Hawkes on Bella Martini
