TALENTED Wagga mare Lady Mironton will again need to overcome a wide barrier when she contests the $100,000 Wodonga Gold Cup (1590m) today.
Lady Mironton has come up with barrier 11 in the 13-horse field for Wodonga's premier race.
Lady Mironton had no luck last start when wide throughout but stuck on gallantly for third place in the $100,000 Snake Gully Cup (1400m) at Gundagai.
The barrier is the only thing that has dented the confidence of Wagga trainer Wayne Carroll.
"One thing I didn't want to do at Wodonga is draw a wide barrier," Carroll said.
"Otherwise it's the perfect race for her. She's so, so well."
