Spreyton trainer Adam Trinder isn't perturbed about drawing an outside barrier for his star filly Mystic Journey ahead of Saturday's $5 million All-Star Mile at Flemington.
The three-year-old was handed barrier 16 for the 1600m race by AFL star Joel Selwood, who is one of the event's ambassadors, at Tuesday's draw.
She will move into barrier 12 if the four emergencies inside her, which include fellow Tasmanian Hellova Street, don't get a start.
Trinder believes that the spacious Flemington track and its long home straight can suit Mystic Journey and jockey Anthony Darmanin after winning the Australian Guineas at the same venue on March 2.
"I would suggest it is going to be a high tempo race with the other three-year-olds in it and Happy Clapper," Trinder told Melbourne radio station RSN927.
"They'll go at a good gallop and string out so she would settle down midfield and towards the outside.
"She's quite restricted inside horses so she'll get galloping room, but obviously we need the right tempo and a bit of luck in the running from that barrier.
"But she's won from inside draws and outside draws and I think with the dynamics of Flemington, they get a nice long run in, so there is no need to be in a rush.
"When she has won her races she has been really dominant in the last furlong."
The wide draw hasn't worried punters, with Mystic Journey coming in from $4 to $3.40 on Tuesday to be joint TAB favourite with Alizee, who drew barrier 12, while Happy Clapper is at $5.50.
