Railway Stakes Barrier Draw - Favourite Galaxy Star draws barrier two

Favourite Galaxy Star has drawn perfectly for Saturday's Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) after coming up with barrier two for the $1 million Ascot feature.

Grant and Alana Williams have entered the highly fancied Galaxy Star following his victory in the Group 2 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) last start and his chances were boosted after landing an inside gate. 

Stablemates Perfect Jewel (barrier seven) and Action (barrier 15) also join Galaxy Star in the 15-strong line-up.

Defending champion Great Shot, trained by Rhys Radford, will jump from barrier 10 in his bid to go back-to-back in the race.

Top weight Material Man will be bidding to make it five wins in a row for trainer Justin Warwick and he will start from gate five.

Darren McAuliffe's Gatting, another of the locally-trained runners, got the inside draw in barrier one.

Darren Weir has sent two runners west for the race with Peaceful State and Iconoclasm among the acceptances, but they enjoyed differing fortunes in the barrier draw after getting gates four and 11 respectively.

Champion trainer Chris Waller will rely on Mister Sea Wolf (barrier six), while Kris Lees has sent Prized Icon (barrier nine) to Perth for the big mile race.
