Winterbottom Stakes Final Field & Barrier Draw
The final field and barrier draw have been announced for Saturday’s Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot.
Godolphin’s Trekking has drawn barrier 11 for the Winterbottom Stakes as he looks to put a string of excellent runs without winning behind him. To be ridden by William Pike, the James Cummings-trained six-year-old gelding was second in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) three starts ago. He then finished fourth in the $15 million The Everest (1200m) and second in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m).
The Neville Parnham-trained Indian Pacific has drawn gate four with Brad Parnham to ride. The four-year-old gelding won the Listed Crawford Stakes (1000m) two starts ago before running third in the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) won by Celebrity Queen who edged out Stageman.
Both Celebrity Queen and Stageman will line up in the Winterbottom Stakes as they have barriers 10 and nine respectively.
Celebrity Queen is trained by the powerful partnership of Grant and Alana Williams and the four-year-old mare has won six of 10 career starts.
