Top Victorian harness trainer Dean Braun is no stranger to winning feature races in Tasmania and on Sunday night he looks like adding another cup to the burgeoning content in his trophy cabinet.

Braun will hitch up the favourite Im Corzin Terror in the $40,000 Tasmania Cup over 2579 metres.

Im Corzin Terror has been racing in the silk department in Victoria of late placing in the $100,000 Group 1 Cranbourne Cup behind The Gold Ace and Terrorway two starts back and he followed up last week with a second to Savesomtimetodream in the $25,000 Yarra Valley Cup over 2650 metres.

Im Corzin Terror has drawn gate three on the front line on Sunday night so should his driver Chris Alford push forward and successfully find the lead the race could be all over bar the shouting.

Braun also has entered Mustang Mach that finished seventh in the Yarra Valley Cup but only 3.2 metres behind his stablemate.

The only other interstate invader in the Michael Stanley-trained Queenslander Western Mail that comes of a last-start fifth behind Slick Bromac in the City of Launceston Cup last Sunday night and prior to that he was ninth at Gunbower when first-up from a three-month spell.

Ransom Olds led up from gate one last Sunday night in the City of Launceston Cup and from gate two he should have enough early speed to contend for that spot again but he has Dappa Dana on his inside and if this young gun can muster enough speed from the pole he could hold them all out.

Dappa Dana loomed to win the City of Launceston Cup last Sunday night but just when it looked as if he would mow down his rivals he galloped for no apparent reason and driver Ricky Duggan had to take hold and he was retired from the race.

Rohan Hillier will take the reins on Dappa Dana on Sunday night while Duggan will resume his association with the in-form stablemate Our Chan of Command that comes of a last-start win in a free-for-all over 2090 metres in Hobart two weeks ago that followed an emphatic win in the

Cannonball Charge over 1609 metres at the same track on November 24.

Our Chain of Command (barrier six) is a nine-year-old but he is racing like a much younger horse.

Slick Bromac surprised everyone except his trainer last Sunday when he won the City of Launceston Cup and while he looks outclassed here he will be a chance if the race is sun to suit with a strong pace on and he can get cover.
