Stage one is complete and a good draw will help the chances of Zeuss Bromac in Saturday night’s (11pm NZT) $A300,000 Downbytheseaside Breeders Crown Final for the two-year-olds colts and geldings at Tabcorp Park. Melton.
It seems he may find the lead if fellow Kiwi, and in many ways stablemate Perfect Stride is to take a trail from gate one.
