A horse who was a maiden when Copy That won the New Zealand Cup just nine months ago could rain on his comeback parade at Alexandra Park tonight.

Old Town Road may still have only won five races compared with Copy That’s 24 victories but their workout performances last week and handicaps tonight suggest Old Town Road can beat the glamour pacer in their 2200m clash.

Copy That downed Self Assured and South Coast Arden in the Cup at Addington last but fractured a leg bone in Victoria the following month, so will be having his first start in eight months in race eight tonight.
