17/01/02 Pillaging's Classic Hopes Nose Dive
1108leefreedman.jpg (12058 bytes)Pillaging's chances of winning Saturday's $407,000 William Inglis Classic in Sydney have been severly dented after drawing the outside barrier.

Unbeaten after two runs the Lee Freedman trained gelding was the early favourite for Saturday's race after his impressive last start win in Sydney, however his luck at this morning's barrier draw is sure to see his odds ease.

The gelding, who was a debut winner at Sandown before venturing to Sydney, drew the extreme outside barrier in the field of 11.

Despite drawing the outside barrier many punters are sure to support the gelding when it was revealed the brilliant Damien Oliver would be travelling to Sydney to partner the two-year-old.

Pillaging's major opposition is expected to come from the unlucky last start runner-up Choisir who drew the inside alley for Saturday.

The Paul Perry trained son of Danehill Dancer created a big impression at his first start when he stormed home to win the listed Breeders' Stakes in Sydney in late September. Choisir has since finished second at both runs.

The Gregory Hickman trained Sportsman, already a metropolitan winner, has fared perfectly with barrier four. The Supremo gelding will be ridden by Grant Buckley.

Gai Waterhouse is pinning her chances on winning the race with the Spinning World youngster Al Megdam. Brian York, who rode Pillaging to victory last start, will ride the Waterhouse representative.

Waterhouse is just one of four lady trainers who has a runner in the rich race. Barbara Joseph (Mukareena), Maryann Thexton (Planagram) and Dianne Poidevin-Laine (Desert Money) are the other three.
