Hawkspur draws wide for Caulfield Cup

The Chris Waller-trained horse drew barrier 16 in Wednesday’s draw, which will come into at least 15 following the scratching of third emergency Ibicenco who had drawn nine.

The overseas-trained Dandino, who will carry the second top-weight with 56.5 kilograms, fared even worse, ending up with barrier 19 for trainer Marco Botti and jockey Craig Williams.

Waller had better luck with Royal Descent which drew gate three, and Kelinni which will run from the inside gate, while his other runner Moriarty drew 18.

Lloyd Williams’ sole runner in the Cup, Fawkner, drew barrier 12, while New Zealand horse Silent Achiever will start from barrier five for trainer Roger James.

Peter Moody’s only guaranteed runner My Quest For Peace drew barrier four, while his second emergency Sneak A Peek drew 17 and Ibicenco was scratched.

Gai Waterhouse’s two runners had contrasting luck – Glencadam Gold was given a prime spot in barrier six, while Julienas drew barrier 15.

First emergency English horse Forgotten Voice is waiting on a withdrawal to make the final field, but the Nicky Henderson-trained galloper will have almost the perfect spot if successful from barrier seven.
