The 2014 edition of the Elitloppet is a well-matched group in the two eliminations drawn today.
The USA domiciled entrants are in separate divisions with Maven from pp6 in the first and Uncle Peter (listed to drive) from pp3 in the second group.
Maven will battle last year's winner Nahar (trained and driven) and four Europeans currently racing well, Shaq Is Back, Prussia, Timoko (with new reinsman up - victorious in their last outing) and yesterday's impressive winner and final invitee Truculent.
Uncle Peter appears to have drawn the easier group albeit often rough-gaited Caballion was a winner in his last outing. Panne de Moteur and Delicious (USA developed by) are consistent performers and on a given day Raja Mirchi and Pascia'Lest can show up with a solid effort.
