It is an interesting little field for the third race at Borrowdale Park this Sunday , a MR 69 Handicap over 1100m. Kirk Swanson fields Tamarind, Belle Epoque, Supa Wonder and Shepparton, while Bridget Stidolph will saddle Porterhouse and Nimble Dancer. All of them are capable of winning this one on their day.
Of the Swanson runners Belle Epoque (Brown) and Shepparton (Simons) are making their first appearance for the Swanson stable. Both are coming back from lengthy layoffs.
Norbert Takawira has the ride on Tamarind, who is always thereabouts and carries top weight, while Karl Zechner will pilot in-form Supa Wonder.
Porterhouse (Chambers) and Nimble Dancer (McNaughton) seem to have lost their way in their most recent outings but have previously done well over 1100m. Nimble Dancer has the outside draw.
