Memsie Stakes Final Field and Barrier Draw - Alizee draws familiar wide gate

Memsie Stakes (1400m) favourite Alizee has come up with barrier 11 for Saturday’s $1 million contest - the same gate she jumped from when winning the Futurity Stakes (1400m) in the autumn.

The now five-year-old daughter of Sepoy resumed with a win in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill and follows a near identical path this time in having won the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill before taking out the Futurity at her second run. 

Alizee’s usual rider Hugh Bowman stays in Sydney, and Cummings has scored a great replacement with Damien Oliver taking the ride. 

Her Godolphin stablemate Hartnell has come up with the inside gate and will be partnered by Craig Williams following a first-up 3rd placing behind Mystic Journey and Cliff’s Edge in the PB Lawrence Stakes (1200m). 

Cliff’s Edge has drawn alongside Hartnell in barrier 2, while his stablemate, Humidor, who resumes from injury has drawn wide in gate 10.

The in-form Begood Toya Mother is aiming for seven wins in a row and has suffered the widest gate (13) as he tackles elite level company for the first time.
