Rosehill Guineas final field and barrier draw

A field of 13 is set to contest Saturday’s Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (1600m) at Rosehill Gardens following the barrier draw for the $600,000 event.

Randwick Guineas winner Shadow Hero has drawn barrier 8 in his bid for back-to-back elite level wins.

Cox Plate runner-up Castelvecchio gets back out to a suitable trip and will be ridden by Craig Williams as the pair jump from gate 5.

New Zealand Derby (2500m) winner Sherwood Forest has drawn the outside and will be reunited with Michael Walker who made the trip to NZ to ride the Fastnet Rock gelding last start.

Trainer Chris Waller saddles up three runners in the event with Reloaded and Pancho drawing well in gates 3 and 4 respectively, while Impactful has drawn wide in gate 10.
