The five-year-old by Rubick is one of many horses who made an exodus from the stable of Kody Nestor, following his announcement in October that he was taking a break from training, and is a smart addition to Williams' stable.
He took on this exact same grade of race at Warwick Farm, a benchmark 72 event, just prior to Christmas and came home fifth in a seven-horse field.
Jailbreak jumps up another 100 metres for this trip, looking to add a third career win over the six-furlong distance.
The gelding was racing at a high level right from the outset of his career.
His first trainer Brad Widdup threw him in the deep end on debut by running him in the $200,000 listed Magic Million Wyong 2YO Classic, where he ran seventh behind Unite And Conquer.
Things began to turn around for Jailbreak when he moved to Nestor.
He may have raced in easier company but gained plenty of confidence over almost two years with the Dubbo trainer, picking up four of his five career wins there.
During his time with Nestor Jailbreak was also touted as a potential Kosciuszko runner.
Jailbreak is a $17 chance on the market for Wednesday's race, with Gai Waterhouse's promising three-year-old colt Concocted likely to start as favourite.
The Warwick Farm race starts from 5.15pm.
