Solzhenitsyn has won 11 of his 29 race starts and has earned more than $647,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The St Petersburg gelding has not been in winning form this preparation, with his best result being a third placing in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes first-up.

Since then, he has produced a 12th and a 7th placing in his next two Group starts.

Solzhenitsyn is trained by Robert Heathcote at Eagle Farm and will be out to post his first win since claiming the Group 1 Toorak Handicap last spring.

Also included in the 2013 Lord Mayor’s Cup nominations is Danleigh.

Danleigh has won 10 of his 62 race starts in total and has earned more than $2.55 million in prize money during his career.

The nine-year-old is in the midst of his final career campaign and will be out to post a well-deserved win.

Danleigh placed sixth of 11 in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes last start and will be looking to go five places better in Saturday’s 2013 Lord Mayor’s Cup.

Biggles and Rangirangdoo are also included in the 2013 Lord Mayor’s Cup nominations.
