He’s conquered Randwick and now Clint Larlabrook will be out for a win closer to home with talented four-year-old Larlabrook.

Larlabrook, who won a Highway Handicap at the metropolitan track two starts back, was one of 116 nominations received for Monday’s seven-race meeting at Wellington Jockey Club.

The tough but lightly-raced Larlabrook has three wins from five starts and has been put forward for the Class 3 Handicap (1000m).

That event drew in 12 nominations, including Peter Nestor’s newcomer, Legerity.

Legerity won his first trial for the Dubbo trainer last week but hasn’t yet raced out west since making the move from the stables of Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes.

Legerity has one win in 10 starts.

Both the Benchmark 53 Handicap (1600m) and the Class 1 Handicap (1100m) attracted 24 nominations, the most of any race.

The final fields are released on Thursday.
