Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Final Field & Barrier Draw

Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes barrier draw

 

The Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes barrier draw was conducted on Wednesday morning with a capacity final field of 16 plus four emergencies declared for the Caulfield Group 1.

Last start Memsie Stakes (1400m) winner Behemoth has been set a mammoth task and will have to carry 60kg in the $500,000 handicap that has traditionally favoured those down in the weights.

The David Jolly-trained galloper has come up with barrier 5 and will again be ridden by Craig Williams.

Group 2 Lets Elope Stakes (1400m) winner Pretty Brazen is one of two runners for trainers Tony and Calvin McEvoy, and she drops from 58kg to 54.5kg and has drawn gate 10.

The speedy Dollar For Dollar is the other McEvoy runner, and considering Luke Currie rode both McEvoy horses last start and has opted for Pretty Brazen on Saturday, Dollar For Dollar looks to be the stable’s second-stringer.

There is plenty of speed in this even with Streets Of Avalon drawing wide in gate 17 and being forced to go forward, while reigning Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Begood Toya Mother has drawn gate 5 and is also likely to push on and set the speed.
