Cox Plate favourite Lys Gracieux has drawn awkwardly in gate 15 ahead of Saturday’s $5 million weight-for-age championship.

The six-year-old Japanese mare was guided to victory in the Group 1 Takarazuka (2200m) by Damian Lane who aims for a rare double on Saturday having claimed last Saturday’s Caulfield Cup aboard Japanese horse Mer De Glace.



Others to have drawn outside gates include Homesman (16), Kings Will Dream (17) and Te Akau Shark (18).

Dual Cox Plate placegetter Humidor has copped a blow by being installed as first emergency, while Mr Quickie, Gailo Chop and Dream Castle are also emergencies.
