A full field of 18 plus one emergency has been declared for the Group One Oakleigh Plate with favourite Bivouac drawing barrier seven.

Bivouac, winner of the Group One Golden Rose last spring, will be first-up from a spell in Saturday’s $500,000 handicap over 1100m and is one of four three-year-olds in the field with the others all drawing wide.

Free Of Debt has the widest draw while I Am Immortal has barrier 18 and filly Anaheed 15.

They will all come in one barrier if emergency, Vainstream, who has drawn barrier one, does not gain a start.
