The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Racing -

THE in-form sta­ble of Mur­willum­bah trainer Matt Dunn is eye­ing off an­other TAB High­way Hand­i­cap vic­tory at Rosehill Gar­dens to­day.

Dunn has a tremen­dous record in the High­ways and Tris­tan De An­gel will at­tempt to win his sec­ond straight se­ries race to­day.

The Not A Sin­gle Doubt geld­ing was im­pres­sive win­ning a 1400m High­way at Rand­wick on Ever­est day last month.

He set­tled back in the field but un­leashed on straight­en­ing to win by al­most a length.

Dunn has de­cided to keep his charge fresh for to­day’s as­sign­ment.

“He’s had a month be­tween runs and he likes the 1400m,’’ Dunn said yes­ter­day.

“He’s also on a track that will prob­a­bly be soft at best, which he likes, so he looks a re­ally good chance again.”

Tris­tan De An­gel’s re­turn to form at Rand­wick had Dunn think­ing of the big­ger pic­ture.

“He is a horse we would think about for next year’s Coun­try Cham­pi­onship,’’ he added.

“He’s won three races now so we would have to man­age his pro­gram to get him in but we think he’s a pro­gres­sive sort of horse.

”And he gets through all con­di­tions as she showed at Rand­wick win­ning on the heavy.’’

Tris­tan De An­gel has never raced at Rosehill Gar­dens but has drawn per­fectly in bar­rier three, shouild get a gun run off speed and then be able to un­wind in the straight.
