25/9/2019 Bivouac to jump from barrier six

Last start Run To The Rose (Gr 2, 1200m) winner Bivouac (Exceed And Excel) will jump from barrier six in the Golden Rose Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) at Rosehill on Saturday. The Godolphin colt will be tested over 1400 metres for the first time with the stable waiting for confirmation Hugh Bowman will be fit to ride on Saturday after breaking a finger. Exceedance (Exceed And Excel), considered Bivouac's main rival, has drawn barrier seven in the Group One race.
The field boasts two Group 1 winners, Prince Fawaz (Fastnet Rock) and Castelvecchio (Dundeel), who have barriers five and three respectively.
Rival trainer, Chris Waller will be represented by  Yes Yes Yes (Rubick) and Kubrick (Shooting To Win) and the trainer admits he is finding it hard to split the pair going into the $1 million contest. "It's hard to separate the two," Waller said. "Now is the time for them to prove themselves. They are both looking to make their names as stallions. Hopefully one can do that on Saturday. The race will tell us a lot as to whether to go to the Caulfield Guineas over 1600 metres or the Coolmore over 1200."
