Kiwia embarks on familiar spring pathway at Flemington on Saturday.
The now seven-year-old once again has the Ballarat Cup in his sights.
Kiwia took out the listed race for trainer Darren Weir in 2018 and then made it two on end last year in the care of Ballarat's Archie Alexander.
He has his first start of the spring as top weight in the listed $140,000 The Sofitel, 1400m.
Alexander has given Kiwia a much different racing year.
Kiwia raced on through the summer after his first Ballarat Cup victory.
This time though he does into the spring having had just one run since his second triumph in Ballarat Turf Club's biggest race.
That was at Caulfield in May, when Alexander stated he was planning a Lloyd Williams-style preparation with a light autumn.
Kiiwia had four starts leading into the Sportsbet Ballarat Cup last year, beginning in the same race.
He carried 58.5kg on that occasion and jumps up 3kg.
Alexander also sends out import Young Rascal in the Very Special Kids Pin and Win Plate, 2500m.
Nominated for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups, this is Young Rascal's second start for Alexander after English trainer William Haggas took him to a win in the group 3 Manion Cup, 2400m, in Sydney in March.
Young Rascal finished seventh to Al Galayel first-up at Caulfield on August 29.
Young Rascal sits 27th in the Melbourne Cup and 28th in Caulfield Cup orders of entry released by Racing Victoria on Thursday.
Young Racsal is among a sizeable team of runners from Ballarat stables at Flemington aiming to climb up the orders of entry.
The training partnership of Ciaron Maher and David Eustace has Exemplar, Lord Belvedere, Persan and Saunter Boy in the Very Special Kids Pin and Win Plate.
Exemplar, Lord Belvedere and Persan are yet to pass the first ballot clause for either cup. Saunter Bay is only nominated for the Melbourne Cup, but is also yet to pass the same clause.
Horses can satisfy the Caulfield Cup ballot clause by finishing in the top three in a group race of 1600m or further, or by winning a listed race of 1600m or further.
Horses can satisfy the Melbourne Cup ballot clause by finishing in the top three in a group race of 2300m or further; winning a listed race of 2300m or further; finishing in the top eight in the Caulfield Cup; finishing in the top three in the Cox Plate; or by winning the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington.
Dan O'Sullivan has four-year-old mare Affair To Remember engaged in the group 2 $200,000 Let's Elope Stakes, 1400m, after a first-up fifth.
She is 99th in the Caulfield Cup order of entry.
