Vella's High Carnival Hopes

There is a touch of déjà vu in the Gratz Vella trained High Dude’s path to the Canberra Autumn features. The former Chris Waller horse is a last start winner in the Tumut Mile and looks to be heading towards the newly introduced $150,000 Affinity Electrical Technologies Canberra Mile. High Dude ran second in the corresponding race last year, the Canberra Cup Preview, which this year would see him enter the TAB Canberra Cup with ballot exemption.

The smoke has well and truly cleared from the Canberra region and it is business as usual for trainers and jockeys. It’s a strong card with excellent representation from  metropolitan stables. The track will present in good order and the rail is out 6 metres the entirety. The day’s feature is the BM70 TAB Federal Handicap (1200m).
