Mt Difficulty competes in the Dunstan Feed Autumn Sprint Championship Final at Trentham this Saturday worth $50,000.
A win at Riccarton last month saw him qualify for the race and trainer Lisa Latta has been pleased with his preparation since then.
“While he only ran a sixth recently it was on an unsuitable track, and he has trained on well since.”
Racing Manager Albert Bosma sees jockey Chris Johnson as key. “Chris really suits the horse and has ridden him twice for a win and a second. They seem to click.”
“Unfortunately track conditions look like being heavy, which is against him, so he will need all of Chris Johnson‘s skill.”
“Rain on the day to loosen the track is ironically probably what we want now. It may be easier for him to accelerate if the track isn’t puggy,” says Albert.
