He ran a very good race when finishing second over this course and distance last time. He jumps from pole position and with Gareth Wright retaining the ride, he will be competitive.

The gelding has made a big difference and he made a pleasing return over 1200m on the turf last time. He has taken that run well and will enjoy the rise to 1600m. He has an each way chance in this field.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Gelded 2021.09.27. Good first run as a gelding and should strip fitter. Chance.

Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 12 (12 Runners)

He finished his last race off well when finishing second. He is drawn widest of all and if Warren Kennedy is able to place him in a good position, he should be in the firing line.

She is doing well at home and is putting up some good work. She does take on male company, but jumps from a handy draw of five and we are hoping to see her return to her best.
