A field of 14 has accepted for the first Group One race of the Melbourne autumn carnival, the CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield.

Weir will also start Japanese imports Brave Smash and Tosen Stardom.

Caulfield Cup runner-up Single Gaze makes her autumn return from barrier one under Kathy O'Hara.

Other runners include Godolphin's Hartnell, in-form Tasmanian-trained Tshahitsi, Mr Sneaky for Anthony Freedman and last-start Australia Stakes winner Thronum.
