A three-time NSW provincial winner for Sydney trainer Mark Newnham who was stabled with Munce Racing over the Queensland Winter Carnival. As his former owners focus on Sydney Metropolitan class horses, he will now remain in Queensland to race for new owners.

“He’s definitely a Saturday quality horse in my opinion,” said trainer Chris Munce.

“His ratings and his form suggests he’ll be more than competitive in Saturday races.

“I’ve always like this horse when he was up here. He’s certainly got plenty of races in store up here that he would be more than capable of winning.”
