“If he’s in front they’ve got to catch him and he won’t be sitting four wide for 800 metres,” Burles said.

“They’re world-class horses but who’s to say this fellow’s not either.

“We’ll find out tomorrow.”

Burles said The Cleaner was bigger and stronger than in 2014 when he ran ninth from a wide barrier.

The Cleaner will start from barrier two on Saturday.

“I wasn’t very happy last year but I think this year he’s got the barrier draw and everything in his favour,” Burles said.

“I think he’s probably two (to) three lengths a better horse than he was last year.”
