Knoydart (Canterbury R5 No. 2) - trialled enormous at R’hill on Dec 10. He tracked Red Dynamite into the straight then let rip at the 200m with a burst of acceleration to win by 2-lens with Centrepet in third. Knoydart is a Group horse on his day and boasts some superb all round figures for this. Track is 2s 0-2-0, Distance 8s 2-3-1- and T/d is 2s 0-2-0. On top of that, first-up Knoydart is 3s 0-2-1. Perhaps the most salient point to make is that he has been gelded since we last saw him race.
