    ALREADY on “top of the world”, connections of James Cagney hope to remain in that position during the weekend.

    Making ‘saps’ of his opposition from three starts since arriving in Australia, James Cagney – named after the movie tough guy of the 1930s and ’40s – is set to head to Club Menangle on Saturday night.

    Despite the rise in class, trainer Aaron Goadsby remains confident the son of Art Major can continue his perfect record.

    “This is a jump up in grade, but he’s been going well and put them away quite easily at his last two starts,” Goadsby said. “It will be interesting to see how he goes, but I’ve got no doubt he will make a good account of himself.

    “He’s already paid his purchase price back for us from three starts, so everything now is a bonus to enjoy.”

    To be driven by Joshua Gallagher, James Cagney will begin from barrier five over 1609 metres.

    After drawing gate four in Newcastle during his previous outing, the four-year-old occupied the ‘electric chair’ on his way to a strong 1:55.2 win over a mile.

    “He won his last start in New Zealand and is unbeaten from three starts here, so he goes into the race in ideal form,” Goadsby said.

    “That said, pretty much all of them in the field have won in their last four starts, so there is plenty of good form in it.

    “I think he can go through the grades and this will be a good test to see where he is at.”
