Wide barrier no worry for crack NZ mare

7:43 am on 22 October 2008

A wide barrier is no concern for the connections of the brilliant New Zealand galloper Princess Coup, a leading chance for Saturday's Cox Plate in Melbourne.

Princess Coup will jump from gate nine in the field of 12 for the $3.5 million race, but her jockey Opie Bosson says she tends to race back in the field and as long as the pace is on, she'll be in with a chance.
