District trainer Fay McEwan will be looking for a change of luck with pacer Jet To Paris at tonight’s Echuca trots meeting at the Frank Ryan Raceway.

Jet To Paris, who contests race three on the card for CO only class pacers, won silver medals at her previous two outings at Shepparton and Cobram in the space of four days last week and is overdue for a change of luck.

Unfortunately Jet To Paris has not been favoured in the barrier draw, coming up with the extreme outside front row alley and will need a good slice of luck in the run to score an overdue win.

Accomplished concession reinsman Josh Duggan has the drive on Jet To Paris whose main dangers appear to be the last start winner Magnus Express, who has drawn the pole, and the Paul Males-prepared Whisper Away who has a second draw but plenty of good recent form.

The Riverina visitor Starzz On Parade also looks to have genuine claims in what should be a keenly contested race.

Rochester trainer Mark Thompson will also be looking to be in the winner’s circle at tonight’s meeting with Mind The Wire in race five for C3-4 class pacers.

Mind The Wire has the services of ace reinsman Nathan Jack in a winnable race in which there are just the six starters.

One of Mind The Wire’s main dangers in the race could be another local, the Steve Lindberg trained and driven Bon Jovi, if he brings his A grade game to the track.

Thompson could have a good night at the meeting as another of his runners, Times A Bonus, looks a top chance in race six for two-year-olds despite a back row draw.

Times A Bonus has had just the two outings for a second and a last start win on this track.

The Armbro Operative gelding’s main dangers could be the Barmah-trained Kamwood Ceaser and the in-form The Final Frontier, another of David Druitt’s NSW team.

Trainer and driver of Kamwood Ceaser, Mal Whiteford, also looks to have good each-way claims with the consistent Mands Evie in the trotters handicap, race seven on the card.

With two second and two thirds at his last four outings, Mands Evie is well overdue for a change of luck.

Tonight’s eight race card kicks off at 6.30pm with a CO only race and the Stanhope-trained Black Jasmin gets his chance to break a frustrating run of minor placings after drawing the pole in the 1755m scamper.
