Talented youngsters Red Can Man and Bragwell will run in the Group 2 WAROA Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) and listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) respectively at Ascot on Saturday.

The pair will make up a two-pronged attack for leading Albany trainer Steve Wolfe on the nine-race card.

Red Can Man will have his final test before potentially running in the Group 1 Railways Stakes (1600m) later this month.

Shaun McGruddy will pilot the star four-year-old from barrier four with 59kg.

Bragwell will be having his fourth career start in the same race in which Red Can Man claimed victory last year.

The three-year-old is nominated for the Group 2 $500,000 Sky Racking WA Guineas (1600m) on November 21.

Peter Knuckey takes over the reins from McGruddy, and Bragwell will jump from barrier six and will carry 54kg.

Exciting two-year-old Hear Me Sing will make her race debut on Saturday after an impressive trial win last week.

Wolfe also has Alpha And Omega and Lordhelpmerun entered on Saturday.

Three-year-old filly Watch Me Dance finished eighth in the listed Burgess Queen Stakes (1400m) on Melbourne Cup day for Wolfe at Ascot.

McGruddy said she had no luck from the draw and still raced a touch fresh after being caught wide throughout running.

Hear Me Sing is a full brother to Watch Me Dance.

At Bunbury on Tuesday, Island Charm ran a narrow second for Albany trainer Roy Rogers, while Spiculus finished sixth for fellow local trainer Rebecca Wallrodt.
