Darci Brahma Ready For Seachange
21 Sep 2006 Mark Walker is hoping for an even playing field when Darci Brahma has a rematch with top mare Seachange in the Gr I $150,000 Stoney Bridge Stakes (wfa 1600m) at Hastings on Saturday.
Darci Brahma's first clash with Seachange was last start in the Gr I $200,000 Mudgway Partsworld Stakes when he finished second after a rocky run in the home straight.
Darci Brahma has drawn the outside in the Stoney Bridge Stakes, but has thrived since his first-up run.
"His work on Monday morning was good," said Walker.
"He worked strongly to the line and he's done everything right.
"I still think he was very unlucky in the Mudgway.
"I just hope he gets a trouble-free run on Saturday and that will prove for sure who is the best in New Zealand."
