Stradbroke Handicap 2012 Final Field – Sea Siren Draws Well

Stradbroke favourite Sea Siren has drawn favourably in barrier six

A full field of 18 horses plus five emergencies has been named to contest the Group 1 $1 million feature which stands as the highlight event of the Brisbane Winter Carnival.

Talented filly Sea Siren will have to break a weight-carrying record for three-year-old fillies when she carries 55kg into Saturday’s race but has a favourable barrier on her side unlike Queensland star Buffering.

The Doomben 10,000 runner-up has reportedly returned to full fitness following the stone bruise injury that saw him miss work in the 10,000 lead-up but will have to overcome a wide barrier 18 draw.

Trained by Robert Heathcote, Buffering is still chasing an elusive first Group 1 victory after placing behind Black Caviar and Hay List on a number of occasions.

Also drawing well is promising four-year-old Tiger Tees who will charge out of the gates from barrier 11.

The Joe Pride-trained sprinter has gained a repuation before being able to set a strong early pace and comes into the race on the back of a gritty victory in the Group 3 BRC Sprint.

Tiger Tees will come from one barrier inside Wealth Princess who made a promising return from a two-year injury break when winning the Glenlogan Park Stakes earlier this month.

Tony Gollan-trained Galaxy winner Temple Of Boom drew well in barrier five while half brother Spirit Of Boom will come from barrier 14.
