Top harness racing driver Blair Orange is looking to extend his lead in the national drivers premiership at Forbury today (Sunday).

Orange leads the drivers premiership with eleven wins this season, one clear of David Butcher who is currently on ten wins.

Blair has a good book of drives today and is driving in seven of the nine races programmed at the Forbury track, including all three horses that Canterbury trainer Paul Court has engaged at the meeting.

Hypervelocity would be the best of the Court runners today in the last race on the card. The Mach Three five year old ran a good second last start at Kurow and had previously been racing better horses in the Canterbury area.

Orange labelled Hypervelocity his best chance this week in the Harnesslink ringaround and he looks a good bet and possible anchor in the $30,000 pick six available today.

Last years premiership winner Dexter Dunn is also looking to make up some lost ground, after he missed the first few weeks of the season while he was away at World Drivers Championships in Canada.

He also has a good book of drives today and is fresh from winning the Maurice Holmes Vase on Friday night at Addington on the Otago trained Titan Banner. Dexter will retain the drive on Titan Banner in the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup in November.
