Memsie Stakes Final Field & Barrier Draw
A final field of 15 has been declared for Saturday’s Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield following the barrier draw.
2019 Memsie Stakes runner-up So Si Bon has drawn ideally in gate 3 as he aims to go one better in 2020 following his first-up 4th placing in the Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m).
A win by So Si Bon would give trainers Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes their first Group 1 win since David Hayes left the partnership and set up a stable in Hong Kong.
Last fortnight’s PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) winner Savatiano has drawn wide in gate 11 while stablemate Cascadian has drawn closer towards the centre in barrier 8.
Other PB Lawrence Stakes runners to have accepted for Saturday’s $750,000 feature include: Arcadia Queen (5th) and Streets Of Avalon (7th) who have drawn wide in gates 13 and 15, as well as Mystic Journey (8th) and Regal Power (9th) who have come up with barriers 4 and 8.
Other than Savatiano, South Australian sprinter Behemoth is the only other acceptor to be coming off a last start victory this campaign.
The David Jolly-trained son of All Too Hard impressed first-up defeating Dalasan in the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville.
Peter Moody saddles up two Group 1 hopes on Saturday with new stable acquisition Gatting looking to cause another upset while Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) runner-up Glenfiddich resumes from a spell and has his first run for Moody.
