CF Orr Stakes Final Field and Barrier Draw: Mixed results for Weir runners

  • Defending champion Black Heart Bart drawn well
  • Tosen Stardom gets a wide gate
Tosen Stardom

Darren Weir’s trio of runners in Saturday’s Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) have met with mixed results at the barrier draw.

Reigning CF Orr champ Black Heart Bart has drawn ideally in gate 3, Brave Smash is drawn toward the middle of the field in barrier 6, and Tosen Stardom has come up with the widest gate and will jump from barrier 14.

All Too Hard (barrier 9 in 2009) and Elvstroem (barrier 15 in 2005) are the only horse in recent times to jump from an outside gate and win the CF Orr, so Tosen Stardom will need to be every bit as good as the stable think he is to salute on Saturday.

Godolphin hope Hartnell and the Anthony Freedman-prepared Mr Sneaky will also need luck to go their way from barriers 12 and 13 respectively.

Barrier 1 has been the most successful in recent times with seven winners in the past 29 years, and in 2018, the Nick Olive-trained Single Gaze will jump from the inside gate.
