14/11/2019 Open test for Capital Connection

Capital Connection (Denman) will be chasing his third win in a row when he joins a field of top short-course sprinters in the $105,000 Swiss Ace Plate (1000m) at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday and trainer Tony Gollan is sure the six-year-old won't be out of place in the elite company. "Since we took the tongue tie off him this preparation he has been jumping far quicker out of the barriers," Gollan said. "He showed it at his last start win at Eagle Farm when he went straight to the lead and ran the others off their feet. The last-start Eagle Farm win showed a big track is no worry. But the really good thing was his final 600 metre sectional of 33.20 which is slick on any track but in particular at Eagle Farm. I think we have got it right now by keeping him to the shorter races around 1000 metres. He has raced out to 1350m but it is clear now that is a bit far. Capital Connection hasn't had a lot of luck in his overall career but things seem to be going his way." In early betting markets Capital Connection has eased slightly from $3.50 to $3.80.
