Youngstar draws a good barrier for the Doomben Cup

  • Youngstar has barrier nine for Saturday's Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) 
Youngstar.

Superstar trainer Chris Waller will have six runners in Saturday’s Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) including the favourite Youngstar who has drawn barrier 11 and will be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy. 

It looks a tricky gate on paper for the four-year-old mare but she will get into barrier nine after the scratchings of the two emergencies. It looks a nice map for her to slot into a midfield position and she will get her chance to win her second Group One at Doomben. 

The stablemate Shillelagh will be ridden by James McDonald and has barrier two, while Life Less Ordinary has drawn barrier 10 for Jason Collett and Mister Sea Wolf has barrier three for Jeff Lloyd. 

The Gwenda Markwell-trained Archedemus has won seven of his last eight starts and will need to do it from barrier 17 if he is to win again. 

The Kris Lees-trained Gem Song has been well-backed in early markets and should get a good run from barrier eight with Blake Shinn on board.
