Rodney Blythe will take two horses to Dubbo on Saturday

Young harness racing trainer Rodney Blythe is hoping for some luck this Easter with stablemates Hello Miss Kitty and Monterei Duke racing on Easter Saturday at Dubbo.

Blythe's trained Hello Miss Kitty will line up in the Freechoice and Fitware Pace (1720m) aiming for her fifth career win in start number 36.

The five-year-old is chasing her first victory since October last year when she won over 1755m at Wagga in a mile rate of 2.02.2.

Blyhte will take the reins leaving gate four in the nine horse race.

She'll likely find competition from Nathan Hurst's-trained last start winner Peggyville, while Bernie Hewitt's Ima Black Beauty has drawn nicely in gate two.

Monterei Duke will race in the West Dubbo IGA Pace (2120m). 

The four-year-old gelding has been a consistent performer for Blythe. While he's only had one win in 20 starts, he's registered eight minor placings including back-to-back second place finishes recently at the Riverina Paceway at Wagga.

Racing at Dubbo on Saturday starts at 5.37pm.
