The Melbourne sprinter is fresh from a third in the rich Bay Sheffield Gift, in Adelaide, on Sunday.

He ran 12.505 seconds in chasing home backmarker John Jakeman (12.476) and David Gross (12.494). Eddy is already a Maryborough Gift winner.

The six-time Stawell Gift semi-finalist saluted at Princes Park in 2012 and is ready to claim another title.

Eddy has what looks to be a generous mark of 8.5 metres in the fourth of seven 120m heats at Maryborough’s New Year’s Day Highland Gathering on Thursday.

He meets another perennial big-stage performer, Doug Greenough (8m), while Lee Forrest is the backmarker on 3.5m.

Eddy (7m) and Greenough (6.45m) also line up in the same heat in Saturday’s Daylesford Gift, run over the shorter 100m at Cricket Willow, Shepherd’s Flat.

They clash in the third of eight heats.

Eddy and Greenough have also drawn scratchmarker Matt Davies in arguably the toughest gift preliminary of theday.
