CONNECTIONS of Let's Cheer Again will be getting sore voices.
The Hallowed Crown three-year-old made it a hat-trick of wins when he was too classy for a Class 4 (1000m) field at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, January 19.
Despite the heavy track, Let's Cheer Again ($1.50-fav), ridden by Larry Cassidy, stormed home to a one-and-a-half-length win.
It followed two victories over the same circuit and distance in the past month.
"He's a very promising three-year-old,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
"He will now into town for a Saturday race,'' he said.
The colt has earned the crack at metropolitan company.
His record now stands at four wins and a placing from seven starts.

FIVE-YEAR-OLD King Mombassa obviously enjoys his new Sunshine Coast surrounds.
The gelding broke through at his first run for Kendrick Racing in a Class 2 Plate (1200m) at Caloundra on Sunday, January 12.
Earlier in his career he was trained in Victoria by Darren Weir before transferring to Angela Davies in New South Wales and now shifting north to the sunshine state.
Ridden by Ryan Maloney, fresh from his Magic Millions 3YO Guineas success on Alligator Blood on Saturday, King Mombassa ($4.80) gave the leaders a start but ran them down in the straight to win in the final bounds.
"There was good enough pressure early and I found myself in a nice enough spot,'' Maloney said.
"He relaxed very well for me,'' he said.
"Obviously, first up he's a big, gross boy. It is the first time I've been on him.
"There's still a little bit of improvement there and Stuey's horses are going really well, so I was lucky enough to get the sit."'
Maloney said King Mombassa "did get the wanders" in the straight.
"I put the whip in my left hand and he only does what you make him do,'' he said.
"But he's still got improvement in him."
