Mach Beauty - will be heading out of the gate on Sunday.
One of the biggest talking points after Monday's barrier draw for the TAB.COM.AU Inter Dominion was the favourable draws for the noted 'speedsters' in Sunday's $750,000 event. Mach Beauty and Keayang Cullen both begin quickly and will head forward while the Gary Hall Snr trained Livingontheinterest could be a factor also off gate 2.

"At the end of the day we will be looking to lead with Mach Beauty, barrier six is the perfect draw for him," Shane Tritton said.

"I can't think of too many races where he hasn't led, he didn't lead in the Miracle Mile but the mobile barrier may have run a bit quicker that night and the harder they go the more he likes it."

Glen Craven will drive Keayang Cullen and from gate four he envisages holding a position on the pace.

"Well from the great draw we'll be trying to get across to the fence, that's the first plan and then I will have a couple of options up my sleeve," Craven said.

"Im Victorious from gate one will be looking to use his good alley and we will be going as hard as we can to cross him but ideally we will be leading or leader's back at worst."

Michael Brennan trains the leading Western Australian chance Im Victorious and while Livingontheinterest led in their heat he is confident his pacer can hold out the challenge from his fellow 'sandgroper'.

"I think we will be able to hold Livingontheinterest early, especially drawn alongside him but what happens after that is in the hands of our driver Gary Hall Jnr, he has driven in plenty of these finals before and knows what it takes to win them," Brennan said.

"In saying that we don't want to bust him in the first half lap, I think the draw for Im Victorious is perfect and he will have his final hit out at Thursday's Breakfast With The Stars at Menangle."
