Kementari draws nice barrier in field of 10 in 2018 Missile Stakes

Kementari will be stepping out for the first time as a four year old in the Missile Stakes after being one of the star three year olds during the 2018 Sydney Autumn Carnival with a win in the Group 1 $1m Mostyn Copper Group Randwick Guineas (1600m) at Randwick.

Glyn Schofield was aboard Kementari for his win in the Randwick Guineas and will be back on in the Missile Stakes, replacing Brenton Avdulla who rode the James Cummings trained colt at his last Autumn Carnival run when tenth to Happy Clapper in the Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick Day One of The Championships on April 7.

Pierata was runner up to Kementari in the Group 2 $400,000 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill and in the Randwick Guineas and will be clashing with the Lonhro stallion again in the Missile Stakes.

James McDonald will be having his first race ride on Pierata who has drawn in the second half of the field at barrier eight.

Trainer Gary Portelli’s 2017 Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign has drawn the rails in the Missile Stakes with Kerrin McEvoy back in the saddle again after the pair combined for a win in the Group 1 $500,000 Charter Keck Cramer Moir Stakes (1000m) at The Valley during the 2017 Melbourne Spring Carnival.

She Will Reign is undefeated from four first up runs which includes the Moir Stakes win as well as her win in the $250,000 Inglis Sprint (1100m) at Warwick Farm at the beginning of her 2018 Autumn Carnival campaign.

Warwick Farm trainer Bjorn Baker will saddle two runners in the Missile Stakes, Music Magnate (Hugh Bowman, barrier 7) and Egyptian Symbol (Jason Collett, barrier 2) while the Mark Newnham trained Lanciato will jump from the outside gate with Rachel King in the saddle.
