Pirate Ben has won 8 times from 33 career starts and has held together well this preparation with two wins coming via eight outings.

His last run was strong when taking out the Taree Cup by just over 2.0 lengths with Travis Wolfgram aboard, when landing fourth early, loomed up well in a forward position hitting the front at the top of the straight and kicked well clear arriving in a time of 2:04.23.

Although this is a harder assignment, he does drop in weight down from 57.5kg to 54kg giving him a better each way chance on his home track.

Best of luck to all connected with their runner in the Wyong Carlton Mid Gold Cup.
