Winterbottom Stakes Barrier Draw: State Solicitor draws well

  • Barrier 8 most successful in recent times.
  • Brown aiming for third win.

Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) favourite, State Solicitor, has drawn favourably in barrier 4 ahead of Saturday’s $1 million sprint at Ascot.

William Pike stays aboard the Grant and Alana Williams-trained son of Nicconi who is aiming for three in a row this campaign following a narrow victory in the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) last fortnight.

Colonel Reeves runner-up Caipirinha has drawn wide in gate 12, while Malibu Style (barrier 10), Santa Ana Lane (11) and The River (13) will also jump from outside gates.

Santa Ana Lane brings strong Melbourne form to the west having won the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) prior to a 62-day break.

South Australian trainer Lloyd Kennewell was happy with barrier 7 for his classy mare Viddora who  finished a lip 2nd in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) before an unlucky 4th in the Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley. 

Local hoop Jason Brown will be aiming for his third victory in the race with Whispering Brooke who has come up with barrier 8, a barrier that has produced three of the past four winners of the race.
