Final Field & Barriers – 2012 Karrakatta Plate

March 28th, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 2 Karrakatta Plate, which is set to run at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday March 31, 2012.

Included in the 2012 Karrakatta Plate final field and barrier draw is Darlington Abbey, who is currently unbeaten over her three career race starts.

The two-year-old has drawn a perfect barrier of four for the 2012 Karrakatta Plate and will be ridden by jockey Paul Harvey.

Trainer Simon Miller is thrilled with the draw, which he feels puts her above his other stable hope Miss Solis, who has drawn barrier 18.

“There wasn’t much between them last start (in the Gimcrack) but now you’d have to lean towards Darlington Abbey with the gate,” Miller said.

“She’s going really good and (Paul) Harvey can sum up where he wants to be from four.

“Miss Solis has a few strings to her bow so you can park her in somewhere, but the barrier is still not ideal. She’s ready and just needs a bit of luck and she’ll be storming home late.

“My concern is if she’s four or five off Darlington Abbey on the turn, she won’t be able to reel her in the way the other one kicks.

“Darlington Abbey makes her own luck.”

Detection, Alezan Thunder and Fuddle Dee Duddle are also included in the 2012 Karrakatta Plate final field and barrier draw.
