    IT WON’T be an easy task, but connections of New Zealand raider Majestic Man are confident he can return to the winners’ circle at Tabcorp Park tomorrow night.

    Triumphant in the V L Dullard Cup at the same venue a fortnight ago, Majestic Man was then runner-up in a Great Southern Star heat last weekend for before being unplaced in the Final on the same night.

    Having come through the evening “in top condition”, the Phil Williamson-trained trotter is engaged in The Knight Pistol – a race in which he finished fourth during a successful 2021 Australian campaign.

    To be driven by Williamson’s son, Brad, Majestic Man will begin from barrier six, with TAB Fixed Odds listing the son of Majestic Son as the $3.50 favourite.

    Aldebaran Zeus is considered the main danger at $4.60 from gate five.

    “It could be a tricky draw as there is a bit of speed inside him,” Brad said. “I’ll just have to come out and see how it unfolds in the first 200 metres.

    “He had the two runs in one night last week, but was in top condition the next morning and has worked great all week.

    “It’s a handy, even field with a bit of form in it, but he will go well.”

    Should all go according to plan, Majestic Man will return to Melton in a fortnight for the Australian Grand Prix, which he won in 2021.

    The squargaiter will then be taken to Cub Menangle for the $100,000 Hammerhead Trotters’ Mile on March 4.
