“I think he will be my only runner in the race.

“He is a bit more forward than some of the others.”

Messene from the Team Hawkes stable is the second rated horse at 106 and will be having his first run for almost twelve months.

2015 Ajax Stakes winner Burbero will be having his second run back from a spell after finishing second to Brook Road in the $85,000 The July Sprint (1100m) at Canterbury on July 25.

Another good run bay Burbero will tempt trainer Bjorn Baker to nominate the seven year old for the Group 1 $1m The Star Epsom (1600m) at Randwick on October 3.

“He was a revelation last time in and if he can continue on with that then we’ll have more fun with him for sure,” Baker told Racenet.

Gai  Waterhouse has nominated Liberty’s Choice who will be fitter for a first up run when fourth to Rugged Cross in the Listed $100,000 Sydney Markets Limited Winter Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on July 18.
