Canberra galloper Almost Court will have his final hit out in preparation for the Canberra Cup in the Tahiti Travel Connection Handicap at Randwick on Saturday.

Almost Court has been in scintillating form since joining the Barbara Joseph/Paul Jones stable in July winning 5 races and $102,000 in prizemoney.

At his last start at Randwick a fortnight ago dead heated with Emperor’s Way, who is also a likely Canberra Cup contender.

Almost Court has a bold front running style making him popular with racegoers and punters. In form jockey Christian Reith retains the ride on Almost Court and connections will be hoping for an outright win at Randwick this Saturday.

The Joseph/Jones stable last won the Canberra Cup in 2012 with Fill The Page   which was the first year of the training partnership of Barbara Joseph and her son Paul Jones.

The Canberra Cup is on Sunday 11 March 2018.
