Five three-year-olds feature among a field of 13 for the $1.25 million Group One Newmarket Handicap at Flemington.
Group One-winning colts Exceedance and Bivouac have drawn barriers 11 and seven respectively for Saturday’s 1200m straight-track sprint while Group One-winning filly Loving Gaby has barrier four.
Four-year-old Gytrash has drawn barrier two and is top weight with 57kg after weights were raised 1kg at acceptance time on Wednesday.
The Gordon Richards-trained Gytrash is going into the Newmarket off a first-up win in the Group One weight-for-age Lightning Stakes at Flemington last month.
