Kerrin McEvoy will ride Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign half a kilogram over the filly's declared weight in the Group One Moir Stakes.

She Will Reign has 50kg in Friday night's weight-for-age sprint at Moonee Valley but stewards have allowed the jockey to ride the filly at 50.5kg.

The Gary Portelli-trained three-year-old She Will Reign arrived in Melbourne from Sydney on Thursday morning in preparation for her first start of the season against older horses.

Four-year-old Russian Revolution is the $3.30 favourite for the Moir ahead of She Will Reign at $3.90 and Oakleigh Plate winner Sheidel at $8.
