Breen's great season looks set to continue

Gore trainer Syd Breen's magical season looks set to continue at Forbury Park tonight.

Breen notched his 14th win this term when Santanna's Rocket won at Invercargill on Sunday.

This season is clearly Breen's best in his thirteen seasons as a trainer.

He starts Coolhand Easton in race 7 and Mucho Macho Man in race 8.

Driver Brad Williamson has the option of leading from barrier 1 with Coolhand Easton.

Breen said he expected the horse to be hard to beat.

''If he gets out of the gate and leads I don't think that lot would beat him.

''Even if he had took a trail he should be too good for them.

''He worked really well on Tuesday, he didn't go really fast, but he just felt really good.''

Mucho Macho Man will attempt to win his fifth race in just his sixth start at Forbury Park.

The pacer clearly thrives at Forbury Park, but exactly why that is was a mystery to Breen.

''Invercargill and Gore are exactly the same size, but he just loves it at Forbury ... He just handles it so well and I expect him to be hard to beat again.''

Mucho Macho Man scored his fourth win at Forbury Park when producing a swooping finish for driver Mark Hurrell.

Hurrell has driven in each of the horse's Forbury Park wins.

Breen said Mucho Macho Man could return to Forbury Park in even better order than he was in for his last start win there.

Another Forbury Park specialist looks a strong chance in race 2.

Omar Sharif has won twice and placed three times in five starts at the Dunedin track.

The Amber Hoffman-trained pacer went the best race of his current campaign running to third place behind Bettor Enforce at Oamaru recently.

Hoffman has eight horses at tonight's meeting.
