STAR Witness three-year-old Rabbit Hunter has unfinished business in town.
 
After being trapped wide in strong grade at Doomben last start, the gelding bounced back in a Sunshine Coast Class 1 (1000m) on Sunday, March 10.
 
In contrast to his torrid run in town, Rabbit Hunter ($3.90) was given a perfect run by James Orman on his home track.
 
He sat in the box seat just off the pace before slicing through between runners on the inside and holding off odds-on favourite Racecourse Road by a half-length.
 
"It was a perfect ride by Jimmy Orman,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
 
The victory was Rabbit Hunter's second from his past three after breaking through in a Doomben Maiden a month ago.
 
"He's starting to show race day what we see on the training track,'' Kendrick said.
 
Rabbit Hunter is likely to now return to town, although it may be in easier grade than his last assignment, which was a strong three-year-old set weights race.
 
"We might look at a Saturday Class 3 or a midweek race," Kendrick said.
