Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic Field and Barrier Draw

Thirteen three-year-olds have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Group 3 Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic (2000m), including a number of runners who have already posted impressive black type results through the 2015 Spring Carnival.

Lizard Island produced a career-best effort to date when running second to Press Statement in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) last weekend, and has been confirmed to back up in the 2015 Caulfield Classic field.

Posting one win and five minors through a strong and consistent seven start career so far, Lizard Island ran on for a close third in a Sandown minor over 1200m on August 26th before mustering an impressive late effort to finish second amongst talented company in the Listed Pin & Win Stakes (1400m).

Breaking through for a maiden win in the Evergreen Charity Raceday Maiden (1600m) on September 23rd, the Sebring colt will need some luck in running from barrier 11 in the Caulfield Classic but will be partnered by renowned hoop Tommy Berry.

Shards will also back up from a start in the Caulfield Guineas this weekend, but should receive a far better run in the Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic from barrier 6.

Shards stamped himself as a colt to follow when charging home to win the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) on August 22nd, but failed to fire and beat only one runner home in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) on September 12th.

Responding well when second in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) in what was his only start prior to his hapless performance last weekend, Shards is yet to have a jockey confirmed for the Caulfield Stakes however James McDonald will likely take to his saddle.

Lee and Anthony Freedman have a huge opinion of Kiwi import Ragnaar, and the three-year-old will get his first look at a good trip in the 2015 Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic from the ideal barrier 3.

Ragnaar began his racing career under the guidance of Nigel Tiley, and immediately announced his competitive arrival when running second in the Racing At Avondale Maiden (1200m) and third in the Listed Great Northern Foal Stakes (1400m) in May.

Debuting in Australia for success in the Lois Ballantyne Memorial Maiden (1400m) on September 17th, the Roc De Cambes gelding had absolutely no luck in running when seventh in the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) a fortnight ago.

Tivaci undoubtedly faces his greatest task to date in the Caulfield Classic but if offered a great opportunity to find ideal running room early from the rails draw.

Winning a minor over 1200m at Echuca on debut on September 5th, the High Chaparral colt progressed to second in the Australian Seen & Turf BM64 (1400m) before again placing second in the Listed UCI Stakes (1800m) on October 4th.
