Favourite Dalasan has had his hopes hit for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) after drawing the second-widest barrier in a field of 16 plus three emergencies for Saturday's feature. 


Dalasan, the Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas-trained South Australian hope, has won four of his six career starts and finished runner-up on the other two occasions. 

But Hugh Bowman's ride has come up with 18 for Saturday's 1600m-race and is now an easing favourite. 



Another of the leading chances Kubrick, for trainer Chris Waller who has won two of the past four Caulfield Guineas' with The Autumn Sun (2018) and Press Statement (2015), was out of luck as he landed barrier 17. 

David Vandyke's unbeaten Queenslander Alligator Blood, who defeated Dalasan in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude, fared slightly better in the barrier draw after getting gate 13. 

Godolphin will be represented by the James Cummings-trained Subedar (barrier seven), while Anthony Freedman's Super Seth (barrier five) is another of the leading hopes for the stallion-making race.
