Charmed Harmony has found great form this season and has been included by trainer John Sadler in 2016 BRC Sprint nominations.

A strong and consistent performer through his entire racing career so far, Charmed Harmony has posted a commendable thirteen wins and six minors through thirty-two competitive appearances.

Capping a typically strong 2015 campaign with success in the Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m), Charmed Harmony clearly required a run when ninth in the Ascot Racecourse Trophy (1400m) first-up this time, but ran on for an impressive sixth in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) on March 12th.

Progressing to a close second behind Black Heart Bart in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) on March 26th, the Hussonet gelding will carry winning form into the BRC Sprint after taking out the Charter Keck Cramer Plate (1400m) on April 30th.

Coolring produced a career-best performance to date on the Gold Coast a fortnight ago and has been included in 2016 BRC Sprint nominations.

Resuming this time for success in the Get Well Kerrie Wilson BM93 (1100m) on February 20th, Coolring progressed to second in a Kembla Grange minor over 1200m on March 11th before a good performance for third in the Group 3 Kingdom Stakes (1200m).

Running second in the Listed Weetwood Handicap (1200m) at Toowoomba, the Sebring gelding failed to handle the conditions when sixth in the Hawkesbury Gold Rush (1100m) but returned to winning form in the Listed Prime Minister’s Cup (1400m) last time out.

Bachman failed to fire in his most recent start, but should relish a return to Brisbane racing in the 2016 BRC Sprint.

Resuming on December 5th for success in a Randwick 1200m sprint, Bachman charged home to win the Listed Goldmarket Quality (1300m) on Boxing Day before finishing mid-field in the Magic Millions Cup (1400m) on January 9th.

Resuming from a freshen-up for third in the Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes (1100m) on March 12th, Bachman placed fifth in the Kingdom Stakes before running eighth in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) on April 16th.

The 2016 BRC Sprint field and barrier draw is due to be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
