Newcastle trainer Kris Lees is set to have seven runners in the Provincial Championships Final at Randwick after emergency Hallelujah Boy gained a start because of the scratching of Can’t Find Snippy.
The Michelle Ritchie-trained Can’t Find Snippy has had a foot abscess which has been monitored this week, eventually causing her withdrawal.
The Lees-trained first emergency Hallelujah Boy joins stablemates Just Dreaming, Bastia, Kool Vinnie, Tawfiq Boy, Serene Miss and Princess Posh in Saturday’s field of 15 for the $500,000 race.
Just Dreaming is the $3.50 favourite ahead of the Kim Waugh-trained Manhattan Mist.
