Race eight will see the running of the Schweppes handicap over 1523m for benchmark 70 runners with As Bad As Tyson to jump from barrier 1 with Regan Bayliss aboard.

As Bad As Tyson was last seen finishing ninth of 10/1400 m a fortnight ago at Bendigo in a BM78 handicap.

He is currently a 12 to 1 chance and you can't knock the form from his two wins this campaign.

He will likely race on speed and has drawn to run well and each way hopeful.

Good luck to all connected.
