Nominations have been announced for the Group 1 Perth Cup, which is due to run at Ascot Racecourse on Tuesday January 1, 2013.
32 horses have been nominated for the race, which will be run over 2,400 metres and is worth almost $500,000 in prize money.
Included in the 2013 Perth Cup nominations is Mr Moet, who will be looking to claim the second Group 1 victory of his career.
Mr Moet has won 11 of his 25 race starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money in total.
The five-year-old win the Group 1 Railway Stakes at Ascot Racecourse first-up this preparation, before placing second to Luckygray in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic last start.
Mr Moet has finished in the top four in all 11 of his race starts this year and will be looking to win his first start over the 2,400 metre distance in the 2013 Perth Cup.
Prior to his 2013 Perth Cup run, Mr Moet will first run in the 2012 CB Cox Stakes on December 22, 2012.
While weights are yet to be released, chief handicapper David Hunter expects him to be the top weight for the race.
“At this stage, Mr Moet and Playing God are in line to be the cup top weights on 59kg,” Hunter said.
“I will be reluctant to exceed 59kg when allocating the topweight.”
