NASHVILLE is the only runner on the card for the Fahey team and is expected to give a solid account. Still a relatively lightly-raced son of Galileo, the 4-y-o gained his only success to date over course and distance when in the care of Ian Williams under Jamie Spencer, who steps up once again for one of just two rides on the evening. He has put together three good efforts since a seasonal pipe-opener and a strong run is expected. Dual course winner, Guards Chapel, always goes well here and merits considerable respect whilst Honourable Knight, another course and distance winner, houses each-way claims for Mark Usher. Jezza and Comedy House are others to consider in a competitive staying Polytrack handicap.
