Final Field & Barrier Draw – 2011 Listed Roy Higgins Quality

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2011 Listed Roy Higgins Quality that will run as part of Flemington’s Australian Guineas Day this Saturday March 5, 2011.

The 2600m Roy Higgins Quality will run as race 4 at 2.35pm (AEDST) and will include 16 of our best stayers all vying for a share of the $150,000 prize money on offer.

Included in this year’s final field is Mark Kavanagh’s King Diamond, who has drawn barrier 12 and will be ridden by jockey Michael Rodd in the 2011 Listed Roy Higgins Quality.

King Diamond is in the midst of a very successful third preparation, in which he has won three of his six starts, and only once failed to finish in the placings when he struck interference near the post.

The Danewin gelding has won four of his 12 previous starts and has a career win percentage of 33%.

King Diamond will be stepping up to the 2,600 metre distance after only ever competing over 2,000 metres or below in the past.

Odds for King Diamond and the rest of the 2011 Listed Roy Higgins Quality field will be made available at Luxbet closer to the race date.


Vesper will run in the 2011 Listed Roy Higgins Quality

Also amongst the 16 horse starting field is Robert Hickmott’s Vesper, who won the Listed Clamms Seafood Cup at Caulfield last weekend.

The Zabeel gelding has won four of his 11 career starts and will be looking for his second Stakes level win.

Vesper has also never previously competed over anything longer than 2,000 metres.

The four-year-old gelding has drawn barrier two for the Listed Roy Higgins Quality and will be ridden by Nicholas Hall.

Eric Musgrove’s Rabbuka, Luke Oliver’s Elmore and Tony Noonan’s Mateo have also accepted for the Listed Roy Higgins Quality field.
