A full field of 16 runners plus two emergencies have accepted for the 2012 Balaklava Cup.

Included in the final field is Rialya, who will be having his second spring racing start.

Rialya has won seven of his 25 race starts and has accrued more than $440,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Kempinsky gelding was in top form during the autumn, winning both the Listed Birthday Cup and Group 2 Adelaide Cup.

Rialya has drawn barrier 18 for the 2012 Balaklava Cup and will be ridden by jockey Mark Pegus.

The Lloyd Kennewell-trained gelding will also carry the top weight of 59 kilograms.

Bagman is also one of the 18 horses to accept for the 2012 Balaklava Cup final field and barrier draw.

The six-year-old finished third in the Penny Edition Stakes last start, proving he is in form and ready to contest the 2012 Balaklava Cup.

Bagman has won eight of his 27 race starts and has earned more than $255,000 in prize money.

The Easy Rocking gelding has drawn barrier 10 for the 2012 Balaklava Cup and will be ridden by jockey Brad Rawiller.
