Tradesman is backing up for his third run in as many weeks but despite that is the top elect to take out the Caloundra Cup (2400m) this Saturday at the Sunny Coast.
The Darren Weir trained stayer won the Ipswich Cup two back before backing up last Saturday in the Tatts Cup and lacking the brilliance to go with Divine Unicorn. Looks suited on the big track and Brad Rawiller takes over. He is at $3.70.
He holds the call over Megablast, who gets a bog track and a weight pull on Tradesman from the O’Shea. Expect that $4.40 to tighten right in. Next best is Nurse Kitchen at $4.80, bearing in mind she has also accepted for the Winter Cup.
