Wilma's Mate who won her section of the harness racing Jewels last season and Bordeax who ran third in the Rowe Cup last season, both get serious in their Dominion Handicap preparations this weekend.

The classy trotters will both race fresh up on the grass surface in the group three Banks Peninsular Trotting Cup at Motukarara on Sunday.

Bordeax ran second in the race last year which was won by the Greg and Nina Hope trained Harrysul.

Meanwhile the Greg and Nina Hope trained Monbet has had a minor setback in his Dominion Handicap preparation with a leg issue, but will be back at the trials next week.

Monbet trotted a New Zealand record of 4-00.7 for the 3200m stand when winning the Dominion Handicap last year and is a hot favourite with the TAB to repeat the performance and win this year.


Titan Banner became the first Otago trained horse to win the Hannon Memorial for over thirty years, when he won the time honoured race at Oamaru on Sunday.

The Art Major gelding stopped the clock at 3-16.8 for the 2600m stand, with a quick 54.9 for the last 800m and home in 27.0 seconds flat for the last 400m.


The All Stars Stable of Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen have a big team engaged in todays Ashburton workouts. The top trainers have thirteen horses entered including top 4yo, The Fixer.
