International Cox Plate entry Guest Of Honour has drawn barrier five for his Australian debut in Saturday’s Group One Toorak Handicap at Caulfield.
Trained by Marco Botti, the English galloper will be ridden by Damien Oliver and has 14 rivals headed by last-start Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Trust In A Gust who has drawn barrier 11.
Sydney mare Arabian Gold has also drawn awkwardly in gate 13 with only frontrunner Solicit (14) and New Zealander Recite (15) drawn wider.
Chris Waller had better luck with Bull Point who came up with gate two while Desert Jeuney has the rails.
Commanding Jewel, who will bid to bounce back from a last-start defeat as an odds-on favourite, has a midfield draw in 10.
