Mixed fortunes for Eurell's Manikato pair

Greg Eurell-trained stablemates Apache Cat and Mic Mac have had mixed fortunes at the barrier draw for the Group One Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

While Mic Mac drew well in gate four, multiple Group One winner Apache Cat will have to overcome barrier 12 in the final field of 13.
Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Turffontein is the only galloper to draw wider while Golden Slipper winner Phelan Ready, who was scratched at the barrier at Caulfield last Saturday, has barrier eight.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained Swift Alliance has a midfield draw in seven, one to the outside of impressive last-start winner Nicconi from the David Hayes yard.
