Guineas draw won't stop colt: Williams

A wide barrier for All Too Hard hasn't done much to boost the confidence of those trying to beat him in the Australian Guineas at Flemington on Saturday.

All Too Hard came up with barrier 14 for the $500,000 feature at Wednesday's draw but retains a stranglehold on betting as the $1.33 favourite.

It has many of his rivals hoping the half-brother to Black Caviar has an off-day as he chases a third straight Group One win after beating older horses at weight-for-age in his past two starts.

"If All Too Hard is in it, well, it looks like All Too Hard's Guineas," jockey Craig Williams, who rides High Shot, said.

"But away from him I think it's a very competitive lot and it's going to be an interesting race."

High Shot will start from barrier one and is on the third line of betting at $19.

He played up before finishing unplaced in the Autumn Stakes first-up and Williams said he needed to come to the races and put his best foot forward on Saturday.

But the jockey believes All Too Hard coming back to his own age is a formidable obstacle.

"From what you've seen from him against older horses, the barrier wouldn't beat him," he said.

"I'll be trying to do the best on my horse and I've got a real big opinion of him.

"It's most important that he actually comes to the racetrack and makes himself accountable for the feeling that he gives us when you work him."

The Darley team got their wish with Albrecht drawing barrier five as he tries to bounce back from two defeats as favourite this time in.

He is on the second line of betting at $17.

"Five is pretty good," assistant trainer Paul Snowden said.

"And I was happy to see the favourite draw where he did.

"We just want him (Albrecht) to turn up on the day and do everything right.

"If he (All Too Hard) has an off day we might be some chance."

Star apprentice Chad Schofield was delighted to draw barrier two with Bass Strait, who hit the line well for fifth in the C S Hayes Stakes.

"All Too Hard is clearly the best horse in the race, there's no doubt about it. We're going to get a lovely run, he might not," Schofield said.

"He might still be too classy for us but time will tell."
