The Wayne Potter-trained and Amanda Turnbull-driven Tombstone Eden is the horse to beat in the Tom Kennedy Memorial Pace at Cobram today.GUS UNDERWOOD April 9, 2014 3:15am
Leading NSW reinswoman Amanda Turnbull will drive Tombstone Eden, one of the top fancies in the Tom Kennedy Memorial Pace at today’s Cobram trots meeting.
Having her first start since February, the Wayne Potter-trained Tombstone Eden is a winner of nine of her 40 outings and is a talented mare who looks up to today’s challenge, despite a second row draw and below par runs at her previous two starts.
But she has been freshened up for her return to racing and will be hard to beat if she is anywhere near her best.
Narrandera visitor Transaction, who has drawn the pole for trainer Shaun Snudden and driver Leigh Sutton, the Dave Farrar-trained Gangster Boy, who will be reined by Matt Dornauf, are both drawn to run big races, while the Chris Alford-trained and driven Stormed Out also has to be respected.
Today’s nine-race card has drawn large fields and will be ushered in by three trotters races.
The opening event for three-year-old trotters has drawn a talented field with the Kyabram-trained Majestic Grace looking the main hope.
The David Aiken-trained and Daryl Douglas-driven Im Havinaball and the David Jack-trained and driven Zharis Idol appeal as strong each-way chances in the race along with Shining Monarch.
Aiken will line-up the hot favourite in the first division of the T0-T1 class trot in Dizzyinterest who looks close to a good thing, while in the second division Sweetasay looks a good chance to return to the winners’ list with Robbie Zuve a strong each-way chance.
Last start winners Tango Terrific, Endorsement, Die Tryin and Donoson clash in race seven with Die Tryin looking a good chance to complete the hat-trick for trainer Noel Tyndall.
The opening is at 12.27
