Not only does racing return to Canterbury on Wednesday, but so does Darleyâ€™s more than capable 3yo filly Quidnunc.
In her first prep she ran third to Obsequious and More Strawberries on debut followed by a close second on the Kensington track to Tomâ€™s Choice before being sent for a spell.
She then returned in great order beating the David Payne trained Sea Lord first up here at Canterbury. More recently, Peter Snowden tuned her up for a first up tilt with an effortless trial win at Warwick Farm in late February winning by 1.4L.
The field on Wednesday doesnâ€™t look overly strong and thereâ€™s no doubt this filly will be racing in much better class over the Sydney Carnival.
Another horse making their return to the track is the Bart Cummingâ€™s 3yo daughter of Godâ€™s Own, Dreamcoat. She impressed in her first prep, running third to Beneteau on debut then being slightly disappointing as favourite behind Butt Iâ€™m Ready. She continued to run well in her second prep, running into the more than capable Palomares on more than one occasion.
She comes off the back of a nice trial and Corey Brown sticks with her. Sheâ€™s one to follow first up in race five.
