TOO STRONG: Jockey Jake Duffy and Corsica Lad were too good in the 900m Flat Knacker, trainer Brett Cavanough’s fourth straight win in the event.
IT’S hard enough to beat Brett Cavanough on his home track, but there’s now one race where there’s almost no stopping him.
Seven-dollar chance Corsica Lad ran best on a wet track to win it’s second Flat Knacker in a row.
The win was also Cavanough’s fourth consecutive victory in the 900m Albury carnival sprint.
Cavanaough’s other runner, heavily backed favourite Escebee, didn’t handle the wet and finished in fifth.
“We drew 15, and I said to the owner if it doesn’t rain, we’re no hope,” Cavanough said.

“Then it rained, and the rest, as they say, is history,”
Asked if Corsica Lad would be suited to a sprint at one of the metropolitan races, Cavanough’s response was frank.
“My license says Brett Cavanough country,” he said.
