Punters in recent weeks have been lining up trial form, first-up form, and this weekend they have another variable to consider for Friday’s Hobart harness card.

Some southern-based trainers have reported that anywhere between 40mm to 150mm of rain has fallen on their properties during the week, which has forced them to adjust their training regimes.

Friday night Pontville trainer Wayne Rainbird will take his stable of two to the track including three-year-old Nobeer Nomore who lines up in the final race of the night.

The gelded son of Auckland Reactor has been placed in one of his five starts to date.

That placing was in Hobart on 27 March when defeated 9.8 metres by the smart Victorian Dyslexic.

At his most recent start on 14 June Nobeer Nomore chased home some of the best three-year-old’s in the state when fourth behind Watchmylips, Kohanah and Colby Sanz.

On Friday night, Nobeer Nomore lines up in the final race of the night, a national rating 30 to 49 event for horses with lifetime earnings of less than $25,000, a significant drop in class on his recent efforts.

After going around at $101 and $61 his last two starts, bookmakers are keeping the pacer safe Friday, opening him up as the $5.00 second favourite behind Sermac and trainer Wayne Rainbird is going into the race with confidence.

“I think he will go very close,” said Rainbird

Nobeer Nomore hasn’t been driven to lead in his five starts to date, but the trainer believes the pacer has the early speed to lead.

“I think if Smiley gave him a flick with the stick, he would be able to lead them out,” the trainer said.

Rainbird was full of praise for Hill’s brother Kerry who has spent a bit of time working on the pacer.

“Kerry Hill re-educated him for me, and he does help me fast work them at New Norfolk, and he said to me that he was surprised how quick he is,” explained Rainbird.

Whatever Nobeer Nomore does this season the trainer expects him to improve on.

“Next season when he is a bit older and a bit stronger, he will probably go a long way I hope,” said the trainer.

Hyde Park in the opening race is the other runner from the Rainbird stable to compete Friday, and the trainer had his doubt’s early on in the pacer’s career if he would make it to the track.

“Kent Rattray broke him in, and when I got him, we didn’t think he was going to make the grade at all early on,” Rainbird said.

The four-year-old gelding has only had two starts and he ran an improved race last start on 19 June when fifth behind Betterthanfetta.

Hyde Park looked gone at the 600-metre mark, but the pacer battled on well to only be defeated 6.7-metres.

“I was very pleased with him. He showed me what I thought he had,” added the trainer.

Friday night’s meeting commences at 17:28 and will be shown on Sky Racing 2 and TasracingTV.
