Fastconi (Canterbury Race 8 No. 16):
This three-year-old Nicconi gelding trained by Chris Waller was the emergency for this race but will get a run now that there have been a few early scratchings. Last campaign he finished 1.5 lengths 2nd over 1200m at Rosehill on 20 November, then was not fully tested when 2.5 lengths 7th over 1300m at Warwick Farm on 9 December. He resumes from a 19 week spell following gelding and should be fit after two trials. Is worth an each-way bet.
