They've got a quarter of the Melbourne Cup field but Nick Williams is steering punters to Caulfield Cup hero Fawkner and Metropolitan winner Seville as the pick of Macedon Lodge's sextet.
Blessed with a barrier draw which pitched five of their runners in the inside 10 barriers, Lloyd Williams' army of stayers could have the tempo of the Melbourne Cup at their mercy.
So, too, the hopes of the international contingent drawn out wider on the track including Mount Athos, Voleuse De Coeurs, Red Cadeaux and Ruscello.
English St Leger winner Masked Marvel will start from barrier two, while Sea Moon (seven), Fawkner (eight), Seville (nine) and defending champion Green Moon (10) will bounce from adjacent gates.
Nick Williams laid Macedon Lodge's hopes squarely with Fawkner and Seville.
"Talking about horses who tick the boxes in a traditional sense in the Melbourne Cup build-up, you would have to say the two of ours that tick those boxes are Seville and Fawkner," he said.
"They've both got winning form, they've won the right races and they've competed in the right races and I think he [Seville's] got a really good chance. Fawkner has certainly gone forward since [the Caulfield Cup] run and I think he will run a great race."
Sydney Cup winner Mourayan rounds out Team Williams but was rated the Cup bolter at $126 after his Mackinnon Stakes flop on Saturday.
"I thought he was average but as he gets older he's inclined to put those flat runs in before a two-mile race," Williams said.
He reserved special praise for Masked Marvel, who warmed to his task Down Under after he struggled around Moonee Valley in the Cox Plate.
"If he runs up to his English form he'll win," Williams said. "We haven't had him that long - and he's got a few tricks being a bit older and a bit wily - if we had him another year I could probably say it with a bit more conviction, but I think the horse will run a big race.
"It's a great credit to dad and all the team at Macedon ... every one of our staff [to have six runners].
"You actually dream of having one runner and to have six in the race is an incredibly humbling experience."
