PRIME Candidate made it three wins on the trot at Canterbury on Wednesday and it showed that trainer Bjorn Baker was proactive rather than reactive when handling his runners.

Baker put the blinkers on the three-year-old two starts ago despite the fact he won well at Hawkesbury a start earlier. Blake Shinn praised him for the decision as he got him home ahead of Dawn Dawn.

“It’s hard to put the blinkers on after a victory but they have switched him on,” Shinn said.

“He hasn’t got a great turn of foot but he can sustain strong sectionals a long way out and he’s a Saturday-class runner who is an untapped talent. He’s got nice scope for improvement.”
