We start a good card with some handy maidens. Warwick Farm 4YO 1. ZARZOU (Brodie Loy; 59kg) now with the Annabel Neasham stable is bursting to win one after four runs this prep.

Canberra Racing Review Friday 4 September 2020

The Canberra course proper raced well and was upgraded after Race 4 from a Soft 6 to a 5. It proved a tough day for favourite punters with only one saluting and that was in the last race. A better racing surface played a part in some of the form reversals. Winona Costin and Kayla Nisbet both rode doubles. Trainer honours were evenly spread.
