Arya - Will face a big test from the unbeaten Amarula on Saturday night
Exciting filly Amarula has drawn to extend her unbeaten Australian record at the harness racing meeting at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night.
 
Successful at her five starts since crossing the Tasman, Amarula will begin from the pole in the New South Wales Trotters’ Oaks, with trainer Maree Caldow confident the youngster can continue her winning streak.
 
“She is in top shape and will be hard to beat again, especially from the draw,” Caldow said. “This is her biggest test for us, but everything she has done so far suggests she is up to the challenge.”
 
Kept fresh since her South Australia Trotters’ Derby triumph a fortnight ago, Amarula shapes as the early leader, but is expected to take a trial behind the raging favourite, My Arya, which will begin from gate seven.
 
My Arya is unbeaten from six Aussie starts this season, including a track record victory at Cranbourne last weekend.
 
“We will be out to make the most of the draw,” Caldow said. “Whether it is to try and lead all the way or take a trail is up to John (Caldow, driver) when the race unfolds.
 
“My Arya is clearly the one to beat despite her wide draw.”
 
In what is destined to be an all-Victorian finish, classy filly Endsino is also expected to make her presence felt.
 
Winner of two of her three starts this campaign, the Andy Gath-trained daughter of Angus hall is no stranger to Group One glory, having captured last season’s Vicbred Super Series Final at Melton.
