Barrier Table in a While

(FRI) September 29th, 2023

7:06 p.m. It's Friday. It's a G1. Let's upload that barrier draw table in a while.

2T M Spada
3Pixie Knight
4Naran Huleg
5Win Marvel
6Mama Cocha
7All at Once
8Meikei Yell
10Mad Cool
11Jubilee Head
12Dolce More
13Jasper Krone
14A Shin Spotter
15Kimiwa Queen
16Mozu Meimei

The center of attraction would be if Namura Clair could perform well drawing the inner-most post. Namura Clair has drawn post number 1 in a full-field race twice, both of which she didn't win. On the other hand, T M Spada drawing post number 2 and Jasper Krone drawing post number 13 are both aiming to run away while Mozu Meimei drawing the outmost post number 16 would have to take the lead in order to perform well. It could be a tough pace.
