Hughes usually links up with former teammate Danny Buderus, who missed a chance to buy in for the Kris Lees-trained Tactical Advantage.

“I’ve been in a few others, but it’s usually with Danny Buderus so he’s quite disgruntled that he’s not in this one because it’s been the best by a country mile. It’s been a wonderful ride and I’ve really enjoyed it,” he said.

Hughes is joined by another former Knights player in Darren Forward as part of the syndication for Tactical Advantage, which will run in the Australian Bloodstock colours.

“I’ve always had a real love of the race track and had a lifelong friendship with Kris Lees. I think it’s really great for the town to have this big event in Newcastle,” he said.

In terms of claiming victory, Hughes says Tactical Advantage has “been a little bit down of late, but hopefully we have a change of luck”.
