Rich Enuff remains a dominant favourite for the Group One Caulfield Guineas with jockey Michael Rodd describing barrier 10 as a great draw for the exciting colt.
With trainer Ken Keys chasing his first Group One win, Rich Enuff came up with barrier 10 in the field of 14 for Saturday’s $1 million feature at Caulfield.
Queensland three-year-old Looks Like The Cat, who has chased home Rich Enuff with seconds in both the Danehill Stakes and Caulfield Guineas Prelude, has drawn beside the favourite in barrier nine.
Group One winner Almalad, a last-start winner of the Bill Stutt Stakes, has gate 13 to contend with while Chivalry will start from barrier 12.
The Peter Morgan and Craig Widdison-trained Zebulon has the rails draw while New Zealand Group One winner Our Vespa has the outside barrier.
Rodd said the draw for Rich Enuff would allow him to take his time getting across into a good position.
Rich Enuff came from the outside barrier to sit outside the lead in the Prelude over 1400 metres before exploding away in the straight.
“It’s a great barrier for him,” Rodd said.
“You want to draw negative with a horse like him. You don’t want to have to use him up early from a good barrier, so I can just take my time coming across without having to light him up too much.
“I can let the field sort themselves out and then I can drop in.”
Rodd rode Rich Enuff in trackwork on Tuesday morning and said the colt had tightened up from his last-start win ahead of his first test at 1600 metres.
