Conon Bridge and Bob Butt

Freak Harness Racing Trainer Paul Nairn will take two runners to Addington Raceway tomorrow.

But don't bother jumping in the car and heading to the local Tab to back them, because his runners Conon Bridge and Wilma's Mate are only there to contest heats of the non tote Australasian Breeders Crown.

3yo Raffaello Ambrosio colt Conon Bridge is up against Blood n Whiskey (Robert Dunn) and My Amour (Greg & Nina Hope) in the first of the non tote events.

If the Tab opened up a market you would expect to see Conon Bridge a short priced favourite on the back of his jewels placing.

His stable man, Wilma's Mate, a 3yo Pegasus Spur filly owned by Richard Cornelius only has to compete against the Gavin Smith trained Oona.

Again she should be winning after her jewels placing.

Both runners are to be driven by Bob Butt who looks to have a massive show of picking up a treble when he lines up his own runner Matatoki in race four.

A talented 3yo by Swedish stallion Revenue, Matatoki is on the look out for a penalty free win before the end of the season. While his last start was in January a handy recent trial at Ashburton has him well in commission for a winning resumption.

With those three races out of the way, Butt will drive Gee Up Neddy in race eight for Yaldhurst trainer Leonne Jones.

His recent form has been in top class races and before that the 5yo gelding was a super winner at Rangiora.

Race 10 - Junior - David & Catherine Butt
