Promising three-year-old Dragon remains in the mix for a trip to Christchurch.

The son of Power’s build-up has been interrupted by a succession of rain-affected tracks, but trainer Mark Forbes is still hopeful of a shot at the Gr.1 Al Basti Equiworld New Zealand 2000 Guineas (1600m).

“The tracks obviously haven’t played their part and we’re running short of time, but it’s the same for everyone,” he said.

“There’s two races for him at Te Aroha next Wednesday, but it depends on the weather.”
