There’s an extra 100,000 reasons for connections of Academy to hope talented three-year-old can find his best form at Kembla Grange on Wednesday. Trainer Mark Newnham concedes the gelding has been chasing fitness in his two runs back but will have no excuses on that score as he eyes the huge bonus money in the Kembla Grange $100,000 BOBS Platinum Handicap (1600m).

Bjorn Baker says group 1 winner Samadoubt is more than deserving of a spot in the $4.5 million All-Star Mile as he eyes a return to the track next month.
