Not sure how long it takes to get from Brisbane to Toowoomba but for McCabe to run in Toowoomba and run in Brisbane on the same day, he must be moving!

In-form McCabe faces uphill battle

Toowoomba Chronicle

HISTORY suggests he faces a tough task but former Toowoomba athlete Andrew McCabe returns to the city in “great shape” searching for victory.

HISTORY suggests he faces a tough task but former Toowoomba athlete Andrew McCabe returns to the city in "great shape" today searching for victory in the 2011 Heritage Fairholme Gift.

McCabe has enjoyed a successful year on the track, highlighted by his third placing in the legendary Stawell Gift final on Easter Monday.

He followed that performance with a win in the coveted Ballarat Gift and more recently took out the 100m and 200m events at the University Games at the Gold Coast

But today the 21-year-old is expected to get no favours from the handicapper when he lines up for the $4000 Fairholme Gift as the nominal backmarker.

Seventy-metre gifts traditionally are not happy hunting grounds for backmarkers but McCabe is primed to roll the dice today as he looks to add to the Fairholme feature to his resume.

"I was off two metres in the Noosa 70 metres where I was knocked out in the semi-final stage and I suppose I'll be off a similar mark tomorrow," McCabe said.

"Hopefully it will be a bit more.

"I was off four metres here last year but I'm in better shape now.

"Two metres would make it tough but you never know what can happen, especially if it is a bit wet.

"You have to be in it to find out."

McCabe lived in Toowoomba for 15 years before basing himself in Brisbane.

"This is only the second time I've competed at Fairholme but I remember watching a few of the races over the years before having my first go at it last year," McCabe said.

"I prefer racing over distances like 120m and 200m but I'd like to think I'm still a chance in a race like this."

McCabe's twin brother Josh also competes today after making the final of the Noosa 70 metres.

Today's gift heats begin at 11.30am with the final to be decided at 2pm following the Stonestreets Coaches Charity Relay.
