The barrier draw has wreaked havoc with Friday night’s Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) with many top chances drawing wide in the Moonee Valley sprint.

That opens the door for a few possibly knock off the likes of Heatherly, Russian Revolution, Voodoo Lad and Malaguerra who have drawn gates 13, 14, 15 and 16 respectively.

Had he drawn well, Russian Revolution looked standout, but with Faatinah, Sheidel, Jungle Edge and Heatherly all looking to go forward on his inside, he’ll need a minor miracle to not be posted deep.

Grand old campaigner Terravista lines up as an eight-year-old for his first spring assignment, and he maps really well behind the speed from barrier 7.

With any luck on the turn and in the straight, the old boy might have another Group 1 performance in him.

However, I’m leaning toward the David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Sheidel who gets blinkers for the first time.

A somewhat underrated galloper by many, the six-year-old daughter of Holy Roman Emperor gets the services of Joao Moreira who has ridden her twice for two wins including the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m).

She battled on well to finish 1.6 lengths from Voodoo Lad in the Group 3 The Heath (1100m) when first-up this time in, and with a 27-day freshen-up, and the drop back to 1000m, she should have the fitness to run a strong 1000m without slowing up.

Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign will find pressure like never before and at around the $4 mark, she looks unders.

South Australian visitor Viddora shouldn’t be underestimated at big odds, and she goes into the multiples too.

A tricky race where the early speed and luck will play a big part, but at $7, Sheidel looks value considering she will make her own luck and has options from the good gate.
