    REJUVENATED pair Graeme McIntosh and Wattlebank Flyer are on target for consecutive wins.

    Triumphant in Cranbourne last weekend, McIntosh and Wattlebank Flyer will return to the provincial circuit on Sunday as they chase their fourth success of the season.

    Last February, the duo broke long droughts from the winners’ circle when they scored in Melton before repeating the dose in Cranbourne at his following start.

    For Wattlebank Flyer, it was his first triumph in 34 months, having previously won in Redcliffe on April 29, 2021 when trained by Alan Grimsey.

    It was an even longer wait for McIntosh, who was without victory since Run Rabbit Run proved too good in Geelong on February 27, 2016 with Neil McCallum in the cart.

    On target for his best season as a ripe 12-year-old, Wattlebank Flyer has drawn barrier two over 2080 metres.

    McIntosh will also be represented by Standandeliver, which will begin from the pole.

    Standandeliver hasn’t won since June 2023 when victorious at Albion Park for Narissa McMullen.

    “Wattlebank Flyer has been so consistent since his first win and I was rapt with his run last weekend,” McIntosh said. “He’s come through the run in great shape and is ready to put in another good one.

    “Standandeliver is going better than his form suggests, and from the draw, is capable of popping up with the right run.”
