Belliciouslips (Rod Ashwood) strolls to an effortless win at UBET Park Hobart last Sunday night

Well bred harness racing mare Belliciouslips loomed as one of the best bets on the card at UBET Park in Hobart last Sunday and she never let her backers down with an effortless win in the Stonebridge Regal Pace over 2090 metres for C3-C4 pacers.

Belliciouslips made the most of her front-row draw (gate 2) and when she easily found the front with driver Rod Ashwood aboard, the end result was never in doubt.

The four-year-old mare set a solid pace and when Ashwood lifted the tempo over the closing half-mile (800m) she gave nothing else a chance to run on from the back.

Belliciouslips (Sutter Hanover-Ima Blue Bell) clocked a mile rate of 2.01.1 and ran home her last half (800m) in 58.5 without being fully extended.

She hit the line nine metres clear of Angela De Marco with the Christian Salter-trained Rockbank Dancer just over two metres away third.

The winner and runner-up are owned by Jamie Cockshutt and Barry Cooper who have enjoyed a great season, most with horses they have acquired from New Zealand.

For Belliciouslips it was her fifth win for the season and she also has notched four minor placings while Angela de Marco has won three and been paced twice from nine outings.
