Hector's Here narrowly beat the previous course winner Carey Street over track and trip two runs ago while Daheer missed out by only a nose at the track on his latest start. All of the above can be given a chance in a tight contest but the progressive FITWOOD STAR included three victories over course and distance when notching-up a four-timer and Roger Teal’s charge may not have finished winning yet.
