Retravision-Fremantle Cup Barrier Draw

17 November 2020 | Tim Walker

Shockwave is the big winner from this morning’s Retravision-Fremantle Cup (2536m) barrier draw, coming up with barrier three for the Group 1 feature.

The Ryan Bell-trained pacer had drawn less favourably than Chicago Bull at each of the pair’s four most recent clashes.

However, it will be Shockwave who has the draw advantage over his archrival, who drew barrier six, for the $300,000 event.

Bletchley Park, who hasn’t raced since October 30, drew barrier one for trainer Stephen Reed, while reigning WA Pacing Cup winner Mighty Conqueror will start from barrier two.

Vampiro had no luck in last year’s Fremantle and WA Pacing Cup draws, but looks to have a slightly easier task from barrier four with his blinding gate speed.

Jack Farthing drew barrier five, while Our Jimmy Johnstone, Vultan Tin and Ocean Ridge look to have the task in front of them from barriers seven, eight and nine respectively.

Perfect Major, who stormed into the Fremantle Cup field with a third placing in Sunday’s Pat Cranley Memorial, looks to have an ideal draw in barrier 10.

Convert Denario and Galactic Star will also have their work cut out to win from barriers 11 and 12 respectively.

Braeview Bondi and Stroke Of Luck were named as the two emergencies, while the highly talented To Fast To Serious was left out of the 14.
