Chautauqua is also steady on the second line at $6 after coming up with gate five in Saturday's 1200m-sprint.
Vega Magic has eased slightly from $6 to $6.50 and English went from $9 to $9.50 after they drew barriers 10 and 12 respectively.
Jockey Corey Brown said he had hoped for a draw between two and six for She Will Reign who he will ride at 51kg on Saturday.
Co-trainer Michael Hawkes said five was the perfect draw for Chautauqua who he said was on target for the race despite being unplaced in his two lead-up races.
