Umbeaten Australian Pacing Gold youngster Bettabrown Tiger is expected to maintain his perfect harness racing record when he heads to Hobart on Sunday night.

Although the son of Betterthancheddar is first-up since last March, trainer Melissa Maine is confident Bettabrown Tiger is ready to resume with a win.

Successful at his three starts as a freshman, Bettabrown Tiger has drawn to lead throughout from the pole.

“He has the draw his favour and I think he can remain unbeaten this weekend,” Maine said. “His work has been great and he trialled solidly a couple of days before Christmas.

“He will certainly be hard to beat.”

A Melbourne APG purchase, Bettabrown Tiger has benefitted from his long spell according to Maine.

In fact, the popular horsewoman has set her sights on the Tasmania Derby in April and a trip across Bass Strait.

“He’s grown a lot and is feeling very strong,” Maine said. “There is no reason why he won’t improve as the season goes on.

“At this stage I haven’t really planned anything with him and Sunday’s race will give us a good gauge where he is at.

“If he can improve as I believe he will, I’ll set him for the Derby.

“At some stage I would also like to go to Victoria to try and win his Vicbred bonus.”
