Exciting three-year-old pacer Lettucerockthem will line up tonight at Wangaratta's meeting at Shepparton as he gears up for a shot at the Victoria Derby.GUS UNDERWOOD January 23, 2014 4:05am
Bunbartha trainer John Newberry has five runners at tonight’s Wangaratta harness race meeting at Shepparton, including Henry Ducket.
Leading NSW trots trainer Belinda McCarthy has added some extra interest to tonight’s Wangaratta meeting at the Shepparton Raceway by lining up exciting young pacer Lettucerockthem in the three-year-old race.
Lettucerockthem is coming off a last start second to Ima Mr Brightside in scorching 1:51.6 time in the Simpson Sprint at Menangle on January 11 and should be working towards peak form as he moves towards the Victoria Derby heats next month.
A son of Art Major, Lettucerockthem has won nine of his 14 starts as a two-year-old and will be stepping out for only the second time as a three-year-old tonight.
He has drawn the inside of the second row tonight and could encounter some traffic problems, but he should be too talented for his rivals.
Lettucerockthem will be driven by the trainer’s husband, Luke, who is coming off a driving treble at last Saturday night’s Shepparton Cup meeting.
Diamond Ace, trained and driven by Bunbartha’s John Newberry, could be his main danger, if there is any, despite an extreme outside second row draw.
Newberry has a busy night with four other runners — The Majestic, last start winner Niquero, Henry Ducket and Splendid Choice — lining up at the meeting.
The Majestic and Niquero both look to have strong winning chances.
