Ellalong trainer Michael Formosa was hoping for another easy lead for Ultimate Art at Menangle on Saturday night.
Ultimate Art won last Saturday night at Menangle in a career-best 1.50.3 and returns from gate one in the group 3 JD Watts Memorial.
“It was good to see him lead and get some luck,” Formosa said. “Hopefully he gets the front easy again. He’ll be hard to beat.”
He said Rocknroll Emma and Somemondosomewhere were his best at Newcastle Saturday night.
Rocknroll Emma is in race one and backing up from a win at Tamworth last Sunday. Somemondosomewhere was second at the same meeting and competes in the third at Newcastle.
Formosa said UItimate Art, which will have claiming driver Cameron Hart aboard again, had come through last week’s run well.
