Golden Slipper Final Field & Barrier Draw

Wednesday, 16th March 2016

The final field has been declared and the barrier draw conducted for the 60th running of the $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday. The Mick Price-trained colts Extreme Choice and Flying Artie have drawn ideally in barriers 7 and 5 respectively, further tightening their stranglehold on the market for the world's richest juvenile race. Gr1 Blue Diamond winner Extreme Choice, who will be ridden by Craig Newitt, remains at $2.80 with the TAB following yesterday morning's barrier draw. However, his equally talented stable-mate, and Blue Diamond runner-up, Flying Artie, who will be ridden by champion jockey Damien Oliver, has firmed slightly from $6 into $5 after finally coming up with a decent barrier in gate 5. Such is their dominance in pre-post betting, the glamour colts' nearest market rivals are Capitalist (2) and Astern (17) who share the third line of betting at $9.50. All other runners are at double figure odds. The Anthony Cummings-trained Moqueen is the only emergency in the 16-horse capacity race and is a $101 chance. The final field is:

1. EXTREME CHOICE (Mick Price-Craig Newitt) 56.5kg (7)

2. FLYING ARTIE (Mick Price-Damien Oliver) 56.5kg (5)
