The 2014 field at Helsinki shapes up as wide-open affair. Oasis Bi has 12 career wins in 35 starts for 3,263,264SEK. The six year-old son of Toss Out-Up Front JM-Self Possessed has posted two wins in four starts this year against solid foes.

Sanity (8g Love You-Flash Light-Mack Lobell) has also started 2014 effectively with a 3-2-0 slate in five starts including success in France. He now has 30 wins from 69 appearances for earnings of 9,723,176SEK.

Local player Air Gunner (6g Ray Gun-Dame Gallant-Meadow Gallant) has also begun the season well with three wins, the last two in 1.11.7kr for driver Kari Rosimo.

Winners of the Finlandia include legends of the trotting wars internationally (e.g., Commander Crowe, SJ's Photo, Copiad, Davidia Hanover, Napoletano, Grade's Singing and Ideal du Gazeau). The race record 1.10.6kr was set in 2010 by Quarcio du Chene reined by Bjorn Goop.
