2 KING OF STING (NZ) 26/01/2020 Wagga When questioned regarding the gelding leading today Trainer advised he always instructs riders of the gelding to race in a forward position as the gelding is one paced. He added at its most recent start it had drawn an outside barrier and did not show enough gate speed to cross and settled further back than anticipated.

Add the gelding was suited by drawing an inside barrier today which assisted it in settling in a forward position.
