Henty trainer-driver Grant Forrest is hoping his triple attack can resume in fine style at Albury on Saturday night.

Forrest has Keayang Maverick, Iconic Legend and Shell Green first up, with Keayang Maverick and Shell Green both having their first starts for the stable.

He rates Shell Green, who is searching for his first win at start 39, as his best chance.

“He was pretty impressive at Coolamon (trials) and run his last mile in two minutes,” Forrest said.

“He couldn’t have done too much more for us.”

Keyany Maverick has won once in his four starts, but has only beaten home one runner in the other three starts combined.

He hasn’t raced since a last at Terang in January, but Forrest has been happy with his trialling performances.

"We’ve had him for a couple of months now, worked him up and trialled pretty impressive a couple of weeks ago and ran home pretty solid,” Forrest said.

“I’m expecting him to run a pretty handy race.”

Forrest will also take the evergreen Iconic Legend back to the races.

The 10-year-old won three races last season and Forrest is willing to keep racing him with form like that.

“He is working pretty good but he is 10 years old as well,” Forrest said.

“We will keep going with him until he goes bad.”
