Last years winner and champion sprinter Chautauqua dominates the betting in the race with his odds at $2.10 before the final field and barrier draw was conducted but has landed himself a tricky draw getting barrier 1 which has seen him drift to $2.25.
Crowd favourite Buffering has drawn well in the way of barrier 2.
