Only seven Yalumba rivals for Whobegotyou


Cox Plate favourite Whobegotyou will face just seven rivals in the Group One Yalumba Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.

The Mark Kavanagh-trained gelding has drawn barrier five, immediately outside his last-start Underwood Stakes conqueror Heart Of Dreams.
New Zealander Nom Du Jeu has barrier three and will be out to stake his claims for a Cox Plate start while dual Group One winner Vision And Power has barrier seven.
Whobegotyou’s stablemate Raffaello has come up with the inside gate for the Group One Toorak Handicap, which attracted a full field of 18 runners when acceptances were declared on Wednesday.
Epsom Handicap winner Rock Kingdom was dealt no favours with gate 15, nor was the in-form Gold Salute who has barrier 17.
The Sydney-trained pair of Racing To Win and Black Piranha drew 11 and nine respectively with Rupert Clarke runner-up Stickpin to jump from the outside barrier.
