WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

"I would say the 59 kilos is probably the biggest threat to Hartnell. He's going to have to be very brave to shoulder that weight and draw away but he's in really good order and I'd love to see him run another big race again" - James Cummings on Hartnell

"If he learned to relax, which is probably a bit late to be learning now, dropped his head and let you rate him, he'd win a good race. He's been a good money earner for the guys but he's just one of those frustrating horses" - Corey Brown on Tom Melbourne
