Premier Victorian trainer Darren Weir looks set to have more than half the field with four nominations highlighted by multiple Group One winner Black Heart Bart.

The six-year-old won his fourth Group One race when he took out the C F Orr Stakes (1400m) over the same course and distance as the Futurity last Saturday week.

Weir also has Group One winners Palentino and Lucky Hussler entered as well as Japanese import Tosen Stardom who is set to have his first start since the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes in September.

Last year's winner Turn Me Loose (NZ) (Iffraaj), who finished second to Black Heart Bart in the C F Orr was also entered on Monday along with Ecuador (NZ) (High Chaparral) and He's Our Rokkii (NZ) (Roc De Cambes).

Ecaudor is also nominated for the Peter Young Stakes (1800m) on Saturday while He's Our Rokkii also holds a nomination for two races in Sydney on Saturday including the Chipping Norton Stakes
