Message : (Nominated for Canterbury Race 5, Sportsyear BM75, 1250m) Ran a great 2nd first up, has done well since. Drawn wide barrier so needs a bit of luck. Only lightly race so there is still improving in him.

Message : (Nominated for Canterbury Race 7, 2GB BM70, 1550m) She should run well, even though she has drawn awful but Bowman is riding her. Won very well at Hawkesbury last start (last at 400m) and has improved since. Hopefully she will not settle so far back in the race.

Message : (Nominated for Canterbury Race 5, Sportsyear BM75, 1250m) Racing in career best form. His distance record is saying the 1250m might not be ideal but a nice barrier in two, a soft run in transit, he’ll see the trip out nicely.

Message : (Nominated For Canterbury Race 2, Vili’s Pies Hacp, 1900m) He won by 3 lengths at Kembla last start and has trained on well. Blake Shinn has rode him well and he will step up in distance if he wins on Wednesday.
