Once a runner of Chris Waller's leading Group 1 winning stable, Tivoli Street will race around Cootamundra on Saturday.

The now seven-year-old gelding started his career under the care of champion trainer Waller, winning as favourite in a $40,000 three-year-old maiden under Tommy Berry at Warwick Farm in 2017.

Tivoli Street has recently joined Russell Green's Wangaratta-based stable, after 10 straight outings without a win for trainer Matthew Dunn based at Warwick Farm.

Green's set to make the long trip from Victoria for what will be Tivoli Street's third start since joining his camp.

He's the top weight by 4.5kgs in Saturday's Cootamundra Picnic Cup (1400m). Jockey William Stanley takes the reins.

Two-time Harden Picnic Cup winner Cryfowl will look to claim more silverware for Scott Spackman.

There's form on his side following victory in the Dederang Cup in Victoria on March 13, and second in the Ardlethan Cup most recently.

Opera Tickets (Daryl Rolfe) is aiming to go one better after finishing second in the Tullibigeal Picnic Cup two weeks ago.

Red Hot Tango (Garry Kirkup) also has form following a second at Queanbeyan last start and a win at Sapphire Coast earlier this campaign.

Racing begins 1.30pm.
