Sizzling has won six of his 14 race starts and has earned more than $1.06 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The three-year-old placed fifth in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas in his first-up run this prep, despite being the overwhelming favourite for the race.

Sizzling will be looking to reclaim his winning form in the 2013 Fred Best Classic and post his seventh career win.

The Snitzel colt is trained by Kelso Wood at Eagle Farm Racecourse and will be out to begin a successful winter racing carnival.

Also included in the 2013 Fred Best Classic nominations is Academus.

Academus has won three of his eight race starts in total and has earned more than $460,000 in prize money during his career.

The Lonhro gelding won the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas ahead of Sizzling last start and is in top form going into the 2013 Fred Best Classic.

Academus is trained at Warwick Farm Racecourse by Peter Snowden and will be having his second run at Doomben Racecourse.

His last attempt at the course resulted in nostril second to Sizzling in the Group 2 Champagne Classic.

Al Aneed and Dances On Stars are also included in the 2013 Fred Best Classic nominations.
