Lightly raced 5yo who is building an impressive record. Won't have any problems carrying the big weight and this trip should suit fourth-up. Hard to beat again.

Tracked the speed and chased all the way to the line len 2nd (53.5) Earnest Ernest 1200m W Farm (Bm85) Jan 26. Racing well but finds himself in a hot race and would prefer him over 1200m.
