Prerequisite can improve from a last-start last of 15 to win Race 5 (3.40pm) at Canterbury on Wednesday in the IEU Good Faith Bargaining Cup (1200m).
The David Payne trained filly is dropping back several classes after finishing among the beaten division in the G3 Silver Shadow Stakes and G2 Furious Stakes.
Prerequisite (3f Charge Forward – Trail Of Gold by Danewin) has won once in five starts and that was on a Heavy 8 at Warwick Farm in May. Canterbury will race on a similar surface today and the rain has halved the original field of 12.
Prerequisite’s older half-brother Gold Trail (Hussonet) won the G2 The Shorts on a heavy track at Randwick last Saturday albeit down the outside rail where the going was much firmer.
