The full contingent of 14 horses will compete in the 2011 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley Racecourse this Friday March 18th after the final field was announced.
A 57kg weight is universal across the field meaning the barrier draw will play an even bigger role in the 1600m Group 2 event.
The top rated runner, Folding Gear, escaped with a fair outcome with gate 8 virtually in the centre of the pack.
After an impressive win last start in the Yalumba 162, Folding Gear is in scintillating form and will be chasing three in a row in the Alister Clark Stakes.
Elusive King ran second in the Yalumba 162 and has a big chance of reversing that result this weekend.
A barrier five draw puts the Peter Moody trained runner on the inside of Folding Gear with a series of consistent results giving every indication that a win is just around the corner.
One of the horses with a more inconsistent form guide is the Anthony Cummings trained Gilded Spur.
A win last week came after a sluggish second-last in race previous.
The horse racing gods haven’t been kind to the colt which was searching for a bit of luck but has found none of it after drawing barrier 14.
He does have an ability to either go to the front of sit at the back though there’s a chance he can overcome it during the race.
