Cruze gets the chance to return to the winners' list when he runs over his favourite course and distance at Eagle Farm

The talented Cruze gets the chance to return to the winners’ list when he runs over his favourite course and distance at Eagle Farm.

Cruze’s summer campaign has been hamstrung by an unsuitable distance options but he gets back to 1400m in Saturday’s Open Handicap.

The gelding set a 1400m-course record at the track in December, clocking 1.21.03s.

He has since finished unplaced in the Magic Millions Cup before a third over 1600m at Eagle Farm.

Lockwood was forced to drop him back to 1200m at Eagle Farm last Saturday week when he was unsuited by a slow early tempo.

The winner of that race, Mishani El Lobo, ran 1.10.93 which was the slowest open company 1200m on a dry track this season.

“They walked early and then the winner got home in sub 34 seconds which made it impossible for us to run him down,” Lockwood said.

Cruze will carry top weight of 58kg after the handicaps were raised 2.5kg when trainer Kris Lees did not accept with Hallelujah Boy.

In-form apprentice Stephanie Thornton will claim 1.5kg to help overcome the weight hike.

Lockwood has also claimed on stayer Art Attack who steps up in class in the Events @ BRC Handicap (2200m).

Art Attack carried 59kg when fourth at Eagle Farm last Saturday but drops to 52kg this week after Corey Bayliss’ 2kg claim.

“He has been consistent and was paying for it at the weights,” Lockwood said.
