There will also be a Moët & Chandon pop-up, Pimms Horse Float and Heineken Container Bar, which will also be available to all attendees.
On the track, punters will enjoy a day of Black Type racing featuring the Group 3 $150,000 ICD Nivison, the Listed $150,000 Southern Cross Group Brian Crowley Stakes and the Listed $125,000 City Tattersalls Club Cup, plus all the live action from Melbourne will be shown on televisions across the course.
An exhibition gallop will be completed following the conclusion of race 2 by David Payne-trained Ace High over 2000m.
Last start winner Diddums leads the betting as the $4.00 TAB Fixed Odds favourite in the Group 3 $150,000 ICD Nivison in an open race. The Gerald Ryan-trained mare is proven over course and distance.

Chris Waller’s Alward has been shown support in the market opening as the short priced $2.15 favourite in the Listed $125,000 City Tattersalls Club Cup. The four-year-old chestnut will be looking for a hat trick of wins when he takes his place in the field.
Admiral Jello ($2.90 TAB Fixed Odds), trained by Kris Lees closely follows in the betting having tasted success on the Royal Randwick track over 2400m.
