A rain-affected track is the biggest worry for Scone-based Greg Bennett as he prepares to take the progressive Kaypers back to the races at Canterbury on Wednesday.

“If the track was in the good to dead range I would have been extremely confident,” Bennett said.

“But I still think if he gets a bit of luck in running he can still be right in it.”

Kaypers is set to resume in the Jim Beam Shed 22/10 at Rosehill Handicap (1100m).

However, Bennett said he would monitor the weather before scratching time on Wednesday morning with Canterbury rated a heavy (8) on Tuesday.

“If it happened to pour overnight and is raining in the morning, I’m wasting my time coming down and I’ll wait until next week,” Bennett said.

“I’ve got two horses racing tomorrow, one horse is fit and ready to go (Indian Trader) but the other horse is only first-up. At this stage we’re definitely coming.”

Kaypers showed talent with four country wins last preparation from as many starts before also winning at his second city start at Canterbury in June.

Bennett said the gelding’s last preparation had given him confidence to suggest the four-year-old could go on to better things this time in.

“He’s grown and done everything we wanted him to do in his time out in the paddock,” Bennett said.

“His work has been great up until this point and he had a trial at Scone last Wednesday and won pretty easily (by six lengths).

“The 1100 metres at Canterbury is a nice kick-off point for him and I probably won’t rush to take him to Saturday grade until he gets up to 1500 metres or a mile (1600m).”

Bennett said the son of Cape Cross, who’ll be ridden by Christian Reith at Canterbury, could be in line for a trip to Melbourne later this campaign.

“I think he’s a good horse in the making,” the trainer said.

“I don’t doubt he’ll go to Saturday grade and I’d like to think he’ll make black type at some stage.”

Six-year-old Indian Trader won a Benchmark 60 on his home track last start and Bennett gives him a chance in the Rosehill Gardens Event Centre Handicap (1550m) with Corey Brown aboard.

“He’s a good, honest bush horse but I think this is his chance to get a city win,” Bennett said.

Canterbury has received 75mm of rain for the past week but none in the past 24 hours.
