Our Warwick Lad the one to roll at Cobram

The David Aiken-trained Our Warwick Lad is the one to beat in the fast class race at Cobram Harness Racing Club's meeting today.

The Avenel stable of David Aiken has been on fire of late and it looks likely of producing another winner at today’s Cobram Harness Racing Club’s meeting.

Smart four-year-old Our Warwick Lad appeals as one of the best bets on the card in the fast-class race, the Tom Stillard Memorial, which caters for C4-C5 class pacers.

Our Warwick Lad is coming off a last-start fifth to Shelby Cruzin at Maryborough on January 20, when beaten by only 6.6m, but prior to that had won successive races at Melton and Cobram.

The Shepparton-owned pacer has drawn a little wide in barrier five, but has only five rivals to contend with and could prove an anchor bet for quaddie punters.

The first heat of the Bill Farrell Memorial Trot will be one of the features on the program.

There is another heat at Terang on Sunday with an $8000 final at Melton on February 15.

The Chris Lang Sr-trained Lord Liam looks the trotter to beat in the race for T0-T1 class horses, but he will be at cramped odds.

In the final event, the John Newberry-trained Diamond Ace will be hard to toss if he produces his best, despite an extreme outside second-row draw.

But the Russell Jack-trained Honey Maravu, who won on debut, and the Aiken-trained and driven debutant Makemoremoney are sure to have admirers in what is a good race to finish the program.
