Stradbroke Handicap 2020 Barrier Draw
Early favourite Dawn Passage has drawn the widest barrier in twenty three for Saturday's Group One Stradbroke Handicap (likely to be gate eighteen with emergencies out).
A $5 chance with Sportsbet in the all in pre-draw markets following victory in last Saturday's Fred Best Classic, he plummets in the weights off that effort and has the services of jockey James Innes Jnr who brought up his first group one victory aboard Nettoyer in the 2020 Doncaster Handicap over the Sydney Autumn Carnival.
2020 Stradbroke winner Trekking will jump from barrier twenty two as he attempts to go back-to-back with a further 4kg on his back this time around and Michael Cahill to ride.
Three-year-old Hightail has fared well at the barrier draw with the last start Gold Coast Guineas winner jumping from gate five this Saturday with Blake Spriggs in the saddle.
Local gallopers Vega One (twenty) and Tyzone (twenty one) have also drawn out.
