Cisco Bay finished a close second at Canterbury last start and this isn’t much tougher.
He has developed into a very consistent galloper and he maps to get a lovely run in transit with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.
This is his chance to return to winning form.
Love Shack Baby is ready to peak third-up at Canterbury this afternoon.
He found the line nicely a couple of starts ago at Royal Randwick and he drops in weight today.
He ticks all the boxes heading into this contest.
I am confident that Deference is a better horse than his record suggests.
His two barrier trials ahead of his return to the races were strong and he has generally raced in stronger company than this.
He has an excellent chance to make a winning return to the races.
Misteed is over the odds to make a winning return to the races this afternoon.
He finished 2nd in a barrier trial at Royal Randwick on September 25 and looks fairly forward for his return to the races.
Might take a while to wind up but should be hitting top gear in the straight and can finish over the top of his rivals.
