It’s been mixed fortunes for the favourites heading into Saturday’s G1 $1.5 million Stradbroke Hcp, with Wednesday’s barrier draw favouring some and disadvantaging others.

Kingsford-Smith winner Clearly Innocent drifted from $3.40F to $4.40 after drawing gate 20.

Jungle Edge - the Kingsford-Smith runner-up - had a little more luck however drawing seven.

His trainer Mick Bell telling Sky Channel, “He’s feeling that good he’s dangerous.”

“He just seems to get better and better this horse, he loves travelling, he’s having fun (and) we’re having fun,” Bell said.

Derryn and Impending, sixth and fourth in the Kingsford-Smith, drew wide in 21 and 18 respectfully.

Paul Snowden described Gold Symphony as “Mr Consistent,” after the horse drew 11.
