For Nagambie, Mick Shiels is a proven vote-getter, having won the medal in 2007, while interest surrounds how key forward Patrick Rattray will poll after booting 100 goals in the home-and-away season.
Avenel’s leading hope looks likely to be midfielder Andrew Green, while Stanhope playing-coach Brenton Gray could well provide the Lions’ first win since Daryl Harrison in 2003.
Other possible contenders include Murchison’s Chris Cullinan, Undera midfielder-forward Brenton Campbell and Ardmona talent Tom Durward.
The Warren Medal race looks wide open with a raft of leading contenders.
Minor premier Stanhope’s leading hope could well be teenage pocket rocket Casey Livingston, but captain Jamieson Vick and coach Kerrie Gray have also enjoyed fine seasons.
