As the five-year-old chases his first Group 1 win in the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap after placing third in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 last start and finishing in the Group 1 BTC Cup two starts back.

Buffering has won 12 of his 33 race starts in total and has earned more than $2.17 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Mossman gelding won his first up start in the Group 2 Victory Stakes and will be looking to recreate that performance in the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap, which offers $1 million to the winner.

Buffering is trained by Robert Heathcote at Eagle Farm and will have the home track advantage in the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap.

Rain Affair and Sea Siren will both carry the next highest weight of 56.5 kilograms in the race.

Despite her second placing in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 last weekend, Sea Siren is not expected to accept for the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap.

Instead, she will go into quarantine ahead of a run in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot Racecourse in England.

Epaulette has been allocated 56 kilograms due to his last start Doomben 10,000 win.
