Avenel's David Aiken enjoyed a "day of days" at the big Cobram harness racing meeting conducted clost to the Victorian/NSW border on Wednesday December 28, snaring the trifecta in the $25,000 Jim Phillips Memorial Cobram Pacing Cup with Jaccka Clive defeating Composed and Smudge Bromac, while also taking $15,000 Credit Union Cobram Trotters Cup with recent NSW import Im Dejazzman.

Jaccka Clive a 7-Y-0 gelded son of Tinted Cloud and Cabsav Jaccka racing in career best form, lobbed one/one after stepping cleanly from outside the front line for Greg Sugars, with Composed (Chris Alford – barrier two) taking over from old timer Bold Cruiser shortly after the start.

Looking the winner a long way out, Jaccka Clive raced by Brendan James’ BFJ Bloodstock Trust was eased three wide approaching the home turn and when asked for a serious effort on straightening, responded to register a neck victory over Composed in a rate of 2-00.2, with Smudge Bromac coming from last after a bad beginning for third.

Eight year old Sundon/Wildas gelding Im Dejazzman backed as if there was no settling, began safely from a solo 10 metre mark to rush forward and be handed the lead on a platter by Nathan Jack aboard the roughie Split Image in the straight on the first occasion, before adopting “catch me if you can” tactics to run his rivals ragged in scoring effortlessly by a 18 metre margin in advance of Armed Guard which spent most of the race in the open before taking cover on Jingling Silver racing for the bell, with Retained (one/two – five back the markers last lap) running on late for third. The mile rate 2-03.3.
