Albany will have a three-pronged attack in the $125,000 TBWA Stallion Tender Scheme Trophy (1200m) at Ascot this Saturday.

Steve Wolfe has What About Moses engaged, Roy Rogers will saddle up Zetorio and Wild Fusion from the Liam O’Loughlin stable will also contest the 66+ ratings race.

Promising three-year-old Millivoy will also represent Wolfe in the $125,000 Westspeed Platinum Series Stakes (1200m).

What About Moses will have its first run for 148 days and holds an impressive first-up record of two wins and two seconds from six attempts.

He is ideally placed on the minimum weight of 54kg from barrier four with Peter Knuckey aboard.

The six-year-old hit a rich vein of form between November and February with three wins and four minor placings and returns after an impressive barrier trial at Albany late last month.

Zetorio ran an eye catching third first-up last Saturday and is on the seven-day back up, carrying 55kg from barrier nine.

Steven Parnham takes the reins and the six-year-old boasts two wins from four attempts second-up.

Wild Fusion will have just his fourth start at the trip and will jump from barrier three with 55kg for jockey Patrick Carbery.

He will be looking to return to the winners’ circle for the first time in over a year but has won at the track before.

Millivoy rises in grade after breaking his maiden status impressively in Albany last Friday and Shaun McGruddy will take over the riding duties.

The three-year-old will jump from barrier four with 56kg in the field of 13.

Wolfe will also have Eurasia and The Spruiker entered on the bumper 10-race program, while Big Bada Boom will resume from a break for Rogers in a 72+ ratings race.
