The series heat has attracted some very strong nominations including the overall series favorite, Noble Boy. The Todd Blowes runner is a dominant $4 favorite with the TAB for the series finale without even qualifying yet. In what has been a short and stunning career, the 4-year-old gelding is unbeaten in his 4 starts to date, including wins at Albury, Goulburn, Warwick Farm and Rosehill.
As per previous years, the strong stables of Danny Williams Racing, Joseph Jones Racing and Dryden & Collings, has nominated a strong array of runners and added much texture to an already very compelling heat. Many pundits are suggesting that this will be the most competitive heat of the entire Country Championships Series and should give SERA a strong chance of claiming their first Country Championship winner.
