Last-start St Arnaud Trotters Cup winner Irish Whisper will be chasing two cup wins in two weeks in the Cohuna Car Sales Bill Poxon Memorial Gunbower Trotters Cup on Sunday.

The Tony Peacock trained eight-year-old has twice beaten New Zealand champion Stent, so he’s always had ability, but Peacock has him at the peak of his powers right now.

He did plenty of work last Sunday but still proved too strong with Damian Wilson in the sulky.

Wilson will drive the son of Sundon again this weekend.

“We haven’t had him long but he’d gone all right at the trials."

"He’s beaten Stent twice."

"We knew he was going good and he’d run a good race,” Peacock said of the St Arnaud success.

“He’s got ability that’s for sure.”

Nicole Molander and Chris Alford will combine with former Kiwi Dead Cat Bounce, who attacked the line strongly last week after making an early break behind Irish Whisper, while Brent Lilley trained trotter Sun Of Anarchy is sure to have plenty of supporters.
