Kennedy Oaks Final Field & Barrier Draw
The final field and barrier draw have been released for Thursday’s Group 1 Kennedy Oaks (2500m) at Flemington with a field of 14 fillies set to run.
David Payne’s three-year-old filly Montefilia has drawn well in barrier five with jockey Hugh Bowman set to ride. Bowman and Montefilia combined to win the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) two starts ago before Jason Collett rode the filly to win the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m).
The Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes-trained Personal finished second in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) on Saturday. She will have barrier 10 as she looks to go one better on three-straight seconds, including the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) two starts ago.
Miravalle draws gate six for trainer Mark Newnham with Craig Williams set to ride.
