NZ Cup hopefuls Classie Brigade and Ears Burning are nominated for the $35,000 Methven Cup this Sunday.

Weedons trainer Nigel McGrath also has Maverick nominated for the grass-track feature, but he will probably not pursue NZ Cup glory.

Invercargill and Ashburton Cup (3200m) winner Classie Brigade has not raced since May 19 and is rated a $31 shot by the TAB for the NZ Cup on November 14, with Ears Burning, who has not raced since June 3, at $101 behind hot favourite Lazarus ($1.75).

Classie Brigade and Maverick are entered for the Rangiora workouts on Wednesday.

Other notable Methven Cup nominations are brilliant All Stars stable mare Dream About Me ($10 for the NZ Cup), Titan Banner ($9), Buster Brady ($51) and Seel The Deal  ($31).
