Mixed fortunes for Golden Slipper favourites

COSMIC Force is the new favourite for the $3.5 million Longines Golden Slipper after Yes Yes Yes drew the extreme outside barrier for the big race at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday.

The all-important barrier draw was held Tuesday morning with the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Cosmic Force drawing perfectly in gate two while Yes Yes Yes drew gate 19.

This resulted in Ladbrokes price assessors reshaping Golden Slipper betting with Cosmic Force firming from $6 to $5 favouritism while Yes Yes Yes eased from $5 to $7. Microphone and Tenley are on the second line of betting at $6.

Yes Yes Yes drew 19 but will start out of the 16 barrier, the starting position which has produced Slipper winners Phelan Ready (2009) and Vancouver (2015).

Godolphin trainer James Cummings had a mixed bag at the barriers with Microphone drawing the coveted rails barrier, Pin Sec to come out of Five and Tenley.

Cummings other runners Kiamichi drew 17 and Exhilarates 18. Their stablemate and first emergency Bivouac drew barrier eight.

Godolphin have seven runners in the extended field and their runners will use the following caps: Microphone - blue cap; Lyre - white; Tenley - red; Pin Sec - black; Kiamichi - yellow; Exhilarates - green; Bivouac - pink.
