Female drivers take centre stage at Monday’s Cobram Harness Racing Club meeting, with an invitation race bringing together many of the state’s most accomplished reinswomen.
Goulburn Valley drivers are well represented in the Antica Murrina Paul Roberts Jewellers Pace for C1 only class horses, with Tania Ward, Laura Crossland, Juanita Breen and Donna Castles flying the flag in the race for the locals.
Avenel reinswoman Breen will partner the form pacer in the race in the NSW-trained Lifes Bubbly, who is prepared at Narrendera by leading Riverina trainer Shaun Snudden.
Lifes Bubbly has had two wins and two seconds at her past four outings on Riverina tracks, but a back row draw and tougher opposition today will make her task that much harder.
Shepparton-trained Arriens looks hard to beat after drawing barrier two in the 1670
Trained by Dave Farrar and driven by Kate Gath, Arriens is coming off a last-start second at Swan hill last week when well-fancied and should be hard to beat. The Paul Males-trained Real Performer, to be driven by Brooke McPherson, also has a suitable draw to make a bold showing.
Farrar could be in for a good day as well as Arriens, he also lines up Gangster Boy in the Moira Shire Pace, a race that has attracted a small but talented field.
Talented concession reinsman Mark Pitt has to bring the pacer from an outside barrier draw and meets a smart one in the David Aiken-trained Earth Angel, who is resuming from a shot let-up and has the plum barrier two draw.
One of last season’s best two-year-old trotters, the Chris Alford-trained-and-driven Miracle, will take on the older horses in the opening race on the card for TO-T1 class trotters and from barrier two in the mobile event over 2170
TO-T1 class trotters also step in the second race and the well-drawn David Abrahams-trained and Daryl Douglas-driven Did I Imagine That gets his chance to break through for another win.
In the final event at 4.57
