Four-year-old Caesar Augustus will make a bid for his 18th win in a 30-start career when he tackles Saturday night’s first heat of the New Year Series (2130m) at Albion Park in Brisbane.

The Joshua Moore-trained horse, to be driven by Chris Petroff,  has scored five Albion Park wins and run a Menangle sixth in his past six races.

Caesar Augustus notched four Albion Park wins between 24th August and 21st September. He bounced back from his unplaced run in Sydney set the pace when a six-metre winner over 1660 metres at Albion Park on 27th December.

Moore is expected to soon travel interstate again with Caesar Augustus and seek major feature event wins.

Victorian gelding Adam Cartwright will attempt to complete a winning hat-trick when he competes in Saturday night’s South Australian St Leger (2230m) at Globe Derby Park in Adelaide.

He led when winning over 1680 metres at Terang on 22nd December and four days later was a Ballarat  2200-metre winner after racing outside the pacemaker.

Jock Dunlop has been booked by trainer Peter Manning to drive Adam Cartwright, who has a career tally of four wins and six places from 11 starts.

Adelaide reinsman Ryan Hryhorec will take his first drive behind unbeaten Victorian three-year-old Dontdoubtme in Saturday night’s opening heat of a Fillies and Mares’ Pace (1800m) at Globe Derby.

Dontdoubtme, trained by Shayne Cramp, has won at Mildura, (twice), Swan Hill and Melton in a four-start career. She led and scored by 11 metres over 2240 metres at Melton on 20th December.

Four-year-old Jean Baptiste, trained and driven by Lance Justice, will take a class drop in a 1609-metre pace at Victorian track Cranbourne on Saturday night.

The gelding, a winner at Geelong in November and Cranbourne last month, finished third over 1720 metres at Melton when stepping up to Melbourne company on 20th December.
