"If anyone lands a clean punch with one of these, it's going to hurt like getting a clear punch to the face [with no gloves on]. It's going to be dangerous in there."

29 April 2018 3:53 AM Canberra Brave stun Newcastle to claim second straight win

What did the Canberra Brave enjoy most about beating their arch-rivals? They get to do it all again this weekend.

They have met twice, running one-two in both at Flemington with Redzel as the winner. Terravista got within three-quarters of a length of Redzel in the Darley Classic in the spring. "He just had too much to make up in that race in the spring 27

"When I got there and saw how it all works over there, I knew I wanted to be in that environment and I did everything I could to get a contract. "I caught up with Tom [Rogic] and he's a great guy, I'm going 20
