Listen to what trainer-driver Rohan Hillier had to say about Four Ex Dan and his Derby prospects

Lightly-raced three-year-old pacer Four Ex Dan will go into next Sunday night's Tasmanian Derby with winning form following his effortless harness racing victory at Tattersall's Park Hobart last night.

Four Ex Dan settled worse than midfield in the one-out line from his second row draw before trainer-driver Rohan Hillier sent the gelding around the field to race outside of the leader Tiz A Jamane when his charge began to pull fiercely 1400m from home.

Hillier was content to allow the son of Four Starzzz Shark to race outside of the leader until turning for home the last time.

As Hillier slipped him more rein, Four Ex Dan darted clear to score comfortably from Cardinal Spec, which ran home from well back, with Charlie James third and just ahead of Tiz A Jamane.
