WILLI Willi will be out to enhance his city record at Flemington on Saturday.
The Albury Cup winner already boasts three city wins and will tackle the $135,000 Handicap (2000m) with Nikita Beriman aboard.
Trainer Craig Widdison said his stable star will be at peak fitness having his fourth run back from a spell.
The talented galloper finished third in the Wagga Cup at his most recent start earlier this month.
"It looks a winnable race and I think he has improved further fitness-wise since Wagga," Widdison said.
"He is in good order and his form stacks-up for a race like this.
"He has drawn to get a soft run and should be able to park just off the speed.
"I'm expecting him to be very competitive."
Willi Willi has drawn barrier five.
The five-year-old gelding is quoted as a $10-chance in fixed-odds markets.
The Chris Waller-trained Mantastic is the early favourite at $3.90.
