Chris Waller’s Zougotcha emerges as the early favourite at $4 through Ladbrokes, looking to extend her winning streak and add to her impressive Rosehill record.

Star hoop James McDonald retains the ride on the mare, who is aiming to achieve the Millie Fox Stakes – Coolmore Classic double for the first time since Daysee Doom (2018).

Waller boasts a strong presence in the race, fielding four runners in total.

However, Zougotcha faces stiff competition from a talented field brimming with last-start winners.

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott‘s Tropical Squall is a major contender at $7.

This dual Group 1 winner is coming off a victory in the Surround Stakes fresh and appears well-suited for the 1500m distance despite drawing barrier 17.

Ciaron Maher‘s airborne four-year-old Semana ($8) is another threat, chasing a three-race winning streak and boasting strong form lines.

With apprentice Dylan Gibbons in the saddle, she has the potential to cause an upset.

At $12, Revolutionary Miss shouldn’t be overlooked.

This Peter & Paul Snowden-trained mare has won four of her past five starts and comes into the race with impressive form in the Frances Tressady Stakes and Mannerism Stakes in Melbourne.

The 2024 Coolmore Classic promises to be an exciting spectacle with several fillies and mares boasting legitimate winning chances.

The race goes down as Rosehill Race 8 at 4:35 pm (AEDT) this Saturday.
