The Ciaron Maher and David Eustace operation are set to roll out another potential star, with the regally bred $1 million colt Acrobat debuting at Randwick on Saturday.
The colt is a son of Fastnet Rock, out of Hips Don’t Lie, and was narrowly beaten on the line in his latest trial.

The two-year-old is currently $7.50 chance on Saturday, with co-trainer David Eustace heaping praise on the galloper.
“He has got a stallion’s pedigree and always had a lot of quality about him. His trial in Sydney was good,” Eustace told RSN927.
“He trialled very typical of one of those good Fastnet Rock colts, he is doing it really quite easy, on his ear, and capable of sticking two or three lengths on them but was waiting for the opposition a bit.
“He has worked in blinkers since and is going to race in blinkers. Ciaron was very happy with his work Tuesday, thought it really switched him on.
“From a nice gate, just to land in the first four or five, possibly a bit further forward (would be ideal). It’s obviously great prizemoney and a nice steppingstone towards the autumn races.”
