Clearly Innocent is an easing Stradbroke Handicap favourite after drawing an outside barrier, but trainer Kris Lees isn’t concerned.

Clearly Innocent drew barrier 20 which means if the five emergencies don’t get a run he will start from gate 15 in the Group One race at Doomben on Saturday.

The Kingsford-Smith Cup winner has drifted from $4 to $4.60, yet Lees doesn’t see the draw as a disadvantage because of an extended run to the first turn.
