The Gavin Groth-trained Leica Boot has been nominated for two races at Tamworth on Friday as the gelding looks to continue his good form at the track.

Leica Boot has been nominated for the Goodwin Kenny Benchmark 65 and the Shay Brennan Constructions Benchmark 55 Handicap.

The Tamworth Jockey Club has been a happy hunting ground for the six-year-old, with Leica Boot claiming a second and a third at the track from his two starts there.

If Leica Boot races the Benchmark 65, Big Ben The Clock – coming of a last start victory – appears to be a leading contender in the 2100-metre race.
