Dictatorship tipped to take over in Sunday's Evans Head Cup

DICTATORSHIP'S rich vein of form is set to continue in The Bowlo Evans Head Cup (1516m) at Lismore on Sunday.

Since resuming from an 11 week break, the spritely nine-year-old has recorded five placings and three wins from eight starts.

"He's in career best form," trainer Stephen Bennett suggested.

"He's been very consistent."

The Commands gelding's three wins have come in his past five starts.

Bennett has done a marvellous job with Dictatorship, a thoroughbred he got when the gelding had just one win in a Newcastle maiden to his credit after earlier stints with Kevin Moses, Darren Smith and Scott Aspery.

"He was a horse that always had the ability but had a few problems with his legs and feet," the trainer said.

"I've had him for about 12 months and he's done pretty good winning five races.

"He's a lovely horse to have around, easy to

do anything with and does what you want him to.

"Whatever he does he puts in 110 per cent."

Three starts back Dictatorship won a 1516m Benchmark 65 event at Lismore on October 20 carrying 55.5kg after Kasie Stanley's 2.5kg claim.

The apprentice again has the mount on Sunday.
