Six wins from ten starts is a clear indication of Sheer Rocknroll's ability and she has the class to overcome her back-line draw in the $100,000 Westbred Classic for two-year-old fillies at the harness racing meeting at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Sheer Rocknroll will start from the inside of the back line and looks set to get a perfect run behind the polemarker Topless Beach Girl, a noted frontrunner.

The task then will be for Stuart McDonald to manoeuvre Sheer Rocknroll off the pegs in plenty of time to issue a strong challenge and make a determined bid for victory.

Sheer Rocknroll has won at three of her past four starts for Byford trainer Ross Olivieri and McDonald.

At her latest outing, at Bunbury last Saturday week, Sheer Rocknroll started from the No. 1 barrier and was beaten for early speed before McDonald sent her to the front after 550m.

She dashed over the third quarter of the final mile in 28.1sec. and had to fight doggedly to hold on and defeat Dodolicious by a metre.

Dodolicious, who raced in the breeze, should again fight out the finish this week.

She will start from the outside (barrier three) on the back line and Colin Brown will be keen to settle her ahead of Sheer Rocknroll.
