Trainer Peter Western is ready to unleash his ultra-consistent galloper Bentley Beau on a mid-week meeting at Albany in the Gangemi Racing Bluff Knoll Slot Holder Handicap.
A winner of four races and 14 placing from 29 career starts, the seven-year-old Beaugondo gelding will carry Kyra Yuill for the assignment over 1230m - where he'll look to add to his $105,000 bank balance.
Bunbury based Michael Lane brings Trade War down to the Great Southern coming off two trials and has booked Ava Catarino for the mount who takes off three kilos. Ginger Green for Steve Wolfe will carry top weight and was a winner last time it stepped out on home soil. Sneaky Fox will need to bounce back into it's best form for Roy Rogers after finishing eighth last start.
Storm Commander is a horse that has hit form with placings at his last three encounters, and will jump from barrier seven. His stable-mate First Law, a New Zealand import, finished fifth behind Beau Zoom last start with Zephen Joshnston-Porter retaining the ride.
Henry The Aviator opened up TABtouch favourite for the affair for Paul Hunter and Jason Whiting following his second to Beau Zoom at Albany last start, and will navigate the journey from barrier eight.
Read The Riot Act rounds out the field, dropping back in distance after failing to fire first-up over 1500m.
It all happens mid-week at Albany Racing Club - join the club from 1PM onwards!
