Now under the care of Chris Waller, UK import Gatewood resumed last Saturday in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm where he ran sixth behind Alma’s Fury.

Gatewood is one of three early Chris Waller-trained entries for the bumper program at Canberra’s Thoroughbred Park with 2011 Sydney Cup winner Stand To Gain also nominated for the Sydney Cup.
Chasing a third straight win, the Gerry Harvey-owned Riva De Lago is an early entry for the Listed National Sprint (1400m).
The Danny Williams-trained Court Connection is the other early entry for the Canberra Cup.
2012 Canberra Cup winner Fill The Page is entered in the National Sprint after an injury enforced spell along with the Brett Cavanough’s new acquisition Niblick .
