STAR Tasmanian reinsman Ricky Dugan is having on of his best seasons with his efforts at the past two Hobart harness racing meetings netting him six winners and multiple minor placings.
Last Sunday night he partnered Angela De Marco and Giuliani to victory and both drivers were superb.
He rated Angela De Marco to perfection in front and he made a midrace dash aboard Giuliani to find the front and that proved to be the winning move.
He was quite upbeat about both hoses.
"I thought Angela De Marco's win was full of merit because she stargazed a bit when she slipped clear in e straight but when she caught a glimpse of on coming she lifted," Dugan said.
"I have no doubt that the filly will be even better after a spell so the owners should expect her to do some good things as a four-year-old," he said.
Giuliani sowed courage in the home straight when at one stage it appeared that he might be swamped by the challengers.
"Giuliani has developed into a very strong type and he has good high speed," Dugan said.
Angela De Marco is owned by Barry Cooper and Jamie Cockshutt while Merv and Meg Butterworth pay up or Giuliani hat is prepared by.
