Randwick Guineas favourite Kementari has fared well at the barrier draw and has come up with gate 4 in Saturday’s Group 1 feature at Royal Randwick. 

The James Cummings-trained son of Lonhro impressed with both wins this campaign taking out the Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) and Hobartville Stakes (1400m).

Australian Guineas runner-up Peaceful State has drawn wide in barrier 9 which may not be a negative seeing nine of the past 15 Randwick Guineas winners have jumped from gates 8 to 12.

Golden Rose winner Trapeze Artist has also drawn out wide (barrier 10), as have the Chris Waller-trained Tangmere (12) and D’argento (14).

Waller has accepted with four runners as he aims for his first win in the Randwick Guineas, and his other pair, Tangled and Kaonic, have drawn closer to the inside in gates 6 and 5 respectively. 

Hobarville Stakes runner-up Pierata has drawn the inside gate and gets his chance to break through at elite level.
