Harness racing trainer Nicole Molander is hoping for an early house warming present at Ballarat on Saturday night.

Molander has star trotter Keystone Del engaged in the V L Dullard Cup, with a win the ideal way to celebrate her move to Victoria.

Molander and her family will exit New South Wales for their newly purchased Riddells Creek property next week.

With the move – and her three children - keeping her busy, Molander’s husband, Dean, will head to Ballarat with Keystone Del.

“It certainly would be a great way to kick off the week we move to Victoria,” Molander said. “It’d be a nice house warming gift.

“It’s a busy time for us with the move and racing, so Dean will head down while I take care of things on the home front.”

Despite his awkward second row draw, Keystone Del has been installed a prohibitive $1.70 favourite in his bid for an 11th consecutive victory.

Fresh from his triumph in last weekend’s Bill Collins Mile, Keystone Del has “trained on well” according to Molander.

“I am very happy with his condition,” Molander declared. “He has trained on well since last weekend and will be at his peak for the Dullard Cup.

“The draw is not the best, but from there he can hopefully be pushed through at the start, if not, at least he hasn’t drawn on the pegs and can get into the running line early.

“With My High Expectation being scratched it makes it easier also.”

Following his Group One engagement, the son of Dr Ronerail will be kept fresh ahead of targets such as the Australian Grand Prix, Glenferrie Farm Challenge and Great Southern Star.
