Bjorn Baker is hoping well-bred Highclere Thoroughbreds-owned colt Edison (Fastnet Rock) can make an immediate impression for connections when he resumes in the 2019 Owners Awards Handicap (1200m) at Randwick.
Edison finished a narrow second to Belitsa (Rubick) on his only start in February. "He's got presence, he's got plenty of quality and I'd like to think if he can run well on Saturday, he'll go on to better things," Baker said. "He's only coming into this with the one trial, which is a bit of a question mark, but he's done plenty of work and we've kept on top of him. He's a really nice horse and I've got a lot of time for him." Edison will be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy.
In early betting markets Edison is $4.80. ($6 with Ladbrokes - Saturday Fixed Odds +30% Bet here).
