Starting from wide barriers is nothing new for Boomsara who has the outside gate in the George Moore Stakes at Doomben.

His trainer Chris Munce says the draw will not hinder Boomsara who is used to it by now.

He has won four races and three of them have been from double digit barriers - 13 (twice) and 12.

"That is where he usually draws, out in the car park," Munce said.

A field of 16 will run in Saturday's Group Three George Moore Stakes (1200m).

"I suppose what will be will be. I will have to leave it up to Brad (Stewart) whether he presses on or looks for a spot behind them," Munce said.

"The horse is fit and this race suits him but who would know."

Stewart will be having his first race ride on Boomsara but has been partnering him in track work.

"Brad was on Boomsara when he worked strongly with another of my horses, Sky Lake, on the Doomben course proper on Tuesday morning," Munce said.

Boomsara won the Group Three Vo Rogue Plate and Magic Millions Guineas last summer but had his winter ruined when he failed to recover from a torrid run on a heavy track in the Gold Coast Guineas.

Munce elected to give Boomsara a longer than usual break and believes it will pay off.

"He is a lovely big horse and he has had a trial so he is ready to run a race with any luck on Saturday," Munce said.
