The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 2 Victory Stakes, which is due to run at Eagle Farm Racecourse this Saturday April 28, 2012.
Buffering is one of just five horses to accept for a place in the 2012 Victory Stakes final field and barrier draw.
The four-year-old gelding, who finished an impossibly close second to Hay List in the Newmarket Handicap two starts back, is primed to win the 2012 Victory Stakes for the second year in a row.
Trainer Robert Heathcote believes Buffering will be close to unbeatable after the gelding drew barrier two for the race.
One of his biggest rivals, Adebisi, has drawn the widest barrier of five for the race.
“It’s the perfect draw for Buffering with Adebisi out in five,” Heathcote said.
“It gives Jim Byrne the rail straight away and how the race is run will depend on how hard Chris Munce wants to go on Adebisi.
“Buffering is a proven bulldog in a stoush and I’ll let Jim decide what’s best to do.
“If Adebisi takes Buffering on for the lead, we’ll be there eyeballing him all the way just like what he did to Rain Affair.”
Buffering has won 15 of his 23 race starts and has earned more than $2.54 million in prize money.
Scenic Blast, Starstreamed and Spirit Of Boom make up the remainder of the 2012 Victory Stakes final field.
