20/1/2020 Diamond Preview test for Hanseatic

Blue Diamond Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) favourite Hanseatic (Street Boss) will put his credentials on show when he makes his return in Saturday's Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) (Listed, 1000m) at Caulfield. The Anthony Freedman-trained colt won the Merson Cooper Stakes (Listed, 1000m) at Sandown on debut in November and is set to be ridden by Luke Currie in the race for colts and geldings having won a jump-out at Flemington last Friday. "He has come through his jump-out well," Freedman's racing manager, Brad Taylor, said. "He's forward enough to run a good race next week but with plenty of improvement to come towards the grand final in February."
