The northern hemisphere open class horse numbers have swelled as New South Wales Harness Racng Club officials continue to assess the form in the $50,000 Ben Franklin Prep races at Chester next Sunday in their attempt to lure another Mr Feelgood to the Watpac Inter Dominion Championship.

The standouts Bettor Sweet and Art Official are joined by the likes of Blueridge Western, Foiled Again, Western Shore, Lookout Hanover and Shadow Play in the eliminations for a shot at the half million dollar Ben Franklin Final the following week.

Whilst Won The West, Winbak Speed and Dali all remain in contention for a trip downunder with a forward showing Mister Big is out of the picture for a trip to Australia as owner Joe Muscara this week signed a lucrative stud deal for the champion to stand at Tara Hills Canada commencing in February.
