After missing three runs with last-start winner Pay The Ones, Wagga trainer Trevor Sutherland is looking forward to getting back on track at Albury on Saturday.
Rain has played havoc at Southern Districts meetings of late but the forecast is very positive and the track is rated a soft 5.
Despite a month between his last win at Wagga, Sutherland believes the seven-year-old is well suited as the top weight in the Stuart Gordon Landscaping Benchmark 52 Handicap (2000m).
He will charge 60 kilograms, but has drawn well with barrier three.
“It’s a very nice race for him,” Sutherland said.
“It is 2000 metres and it has been a month between runs so it will be good.”
Sutherland has a horse in each of the six races and also likes Lightning Alert’s chances coming off three placings.
“He has drawn well and will be there for a long time,” he said.
“He likes the 900 metres and from a nice gate he will certainly be in the finish.”
