Ramadan Yze is tipped to poll strongly in a side that won 16 of its 18 games, but teammates such as Chris Kilmartin, Rohan Hearn and Pell, despite missing a few matches this season, may well take votes away from one another.
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.
Rushworth’s Alana Perry, Violet Town mentor Pip O’Donoghue and Avenel gun Anita Lynch are also major winning chances.
