Bondeiger is favourite for the G2 Adelaide Cup after drawing barrier 2 with Eastender drawn wide.
In-form Tasmanian stayer Eastender has drawn a wide barrier for his first interstate assignment in the Group Two Adelaide Cup.
Eastender has won his past four starts including the Devonport, Hobart and Launceston Cups and has drawn barrier 18 in a capacity field of 20 plus one emergency for Monday’s Adelaide Cup over 3200m.
The Barry Campbell-trained five-year-old gelding is equal topweight for the $400,000 race on 58kg along with the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained Fabrizio who he chased down to win the Launceston Cup (2400m) last start.
The Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained Bondeiger, winner of Saturday’s Lord Reims Stakes at Morphettville, was the $4 favourite on Tuesday after drawing barrier two with Eastender at $5.
The Chris Waller-trained Naval Warfare ($8) has the inside barrier and will be ridden by dual Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Corey Brown.
Perth’s premier jockey William Pike has been booked to ride the Mike Moroney-trained Top Of The Range who has drawn the second outside alley.
