Highly-talented gelding Kiwi Legend is primed and ready to make a big impression at his Australian harness racing debut when he clashes with champion three-year-old Beaudiene Boaz in the WA Derby Prelude at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Prepared at Hazelmere by Mike Reed, Kiwi Legend is ready to issue a strong challenge to Beaudiene Boaz, which has not been extended in winning his six West Australian starts for champion trainer Gary Hall. In a random barrier draw, Kiwi Legend fared well and will start from gate two, with Beaudiene Boaz alongside him in three. Beaudiene Boaz, a winner of two races as a two-year-old in New Zealand, now has a winning sequence of seven and is nominal favourite for the $200,000 WA Derby at Gloucester Park on April 17. He now faces his first serious test in the form of Kiwi Legend, which has romped to effortless victories at his only two starts. He made his debut over 2400 metres at Wyndham on February 1 when overcame a back row draw to win easily by two lengths from River Patrol. Four days later he contested another 2400-metre event at Winton when leading throughout for another soft triumph. Kiwi Legend arrived in WA early this month and has won 2150-metres trials at Byford on the past two Sunday mornings. H An intriguing battle for the early lead is likely in Friday night’s event, with Kiwi Legend, to be driven by Mark Reed, and Beaudiene Boaz blessed with abundant gate speed. Adding spice to the prospect of this early duel is All Aussie Boy, a speedy beginner which has drawn the coveted pole for Bunbury trainer Robert Wood and reinsman Kyle Harper. KEN CASELLAS

Star harness racing reinsman Morgan Woodley is delighted with the progress being made by Hugh Victor and is confident the West Australian-bred gelding will prove hard to beat in the $35,000 Alltools Four-Year-Old Championship at Gloucester Park on Friday night. "He keeps improving all the time and in this preparation I've noticed, even in his work, that he is better and stronger," he said. "He's not a champion, but he can sprint very quickly" Hugh Victor, part-owned and trained at Serpentine by Woodley's partner Stephanie Smith, has drawn favourably at barrier two on the front line of the group 3 event over 2130m. "This barrier really suits him," Woodley said. "He's a sit-sprint type of horse who can also lead in the right circumstances. Hopefully, we'll be sitting somewhere close up in the moving line, and given a little bit of luck over the concluding stages, he should sprint home strongly." Hugh Victor notched his sixth win from 15 starts this season (and his tenth from 44 career starts) when he started from the back line in a 2130m event last Friday night. He settled in sixth place before dashing forward, three wide, after 600m to move to the breeze and then obtained a one-out, one-back trail. He started a three-wide move 500m from home, took the lead on the home turn and won easily from Walter James and Dardy Delight, rating 1.57.4. "We were a touch disappointed with him last week, even though he seemingly went very well," Woodley explained. "We identified a couple of small areas that needed improvement and Steph has worked hard on them and we hope he's going to put his best foot forward. "He didn't seem to have quite as much sharpness as normal and seemed a bit more on the dour side. We've worked on freshening his legs and getting him in a good mind space. Hopefully, he will produce the goods. He has been racing in terrific fashion and with even luck I expect him to fight out the finish." Hugh Victor is a full-brother to champion pacer David Hercules, whose regular reinsman is Woodley. David Hercules has amassed $1,204,419 in prizemoney from 37 wins and 32 placings from 100 starts. Asked to compare Hugh Victor to the eight-year-old David Hercules, Woodley said: "He is different in the respect that he can't run the same gross time and is not as big and as strong as David Hercules. "However, Hugh Victor is improving with every campaign. I have noticed a real difference this time in from the previous time we campaigned him. He has matured and his cruising speed has got better. He does possess very good high-end speed and in one of his wins at Pinjarra this season we clocked him running home the final sectional in 26.8sec. "In that respect he does possess the speed that David Hercules has, but he doesn't have the same overall strength." Polemarker Back On Board, who will be driven by Chris Voak for Pinjarra trainer Michael Brennan, is a smart frontrunner who made full use of the No. 1 barrier four starts ago when he set the pace and won easily over 2258m at Albany. Voak looks certain to set the pace with Back On Board, with Kimba Bay expected to go forward from barrier four to take up the breeze position. If that transpires, Hugh Victor would almost certainly enjoy the one-out, one-back position. Matt White, who trains and drives 2014 WA Derby winner Three Blind Mice, said that the gelding was working in fine style in Busselton and was capable of bouncing back to the winner's list after unplaced runs at Bunbury and Pinjarra at his past two outings. He raced wide early and then in the breeze at his past two starts and White said he probably would change his tactics and race with a sit. Boyanup trainer-reinsman Justin Prentice has sound prospects with The Parade, who impressed with a strong victory over 2130m last Friday night when she settled in tenth position, started a three-wide burst 1050m from home and sustained the effort to hit the front on the home turn and win from Adda Rising Star and Mon Lamour. "This is a good test for her, but she is up to it," said Prentice. "She has improved since her win last week and her work this week has been super. If we follow Hugh Victor we should be thereabouts. She's a winning chance. "Three Blind Mice is probably the class runner in the race, but The Parade has beaten him at Bunbury." The Parade is due for a change of fortune in a feature event. She has contested four group races for a fourth behind Highest Royalty in the group 1 Diamond Classic, a second to Majorly Foxy Styx in the group 2 Dainty's Daughter Classic, a second to Libertybelle Midfrew in the WA Oaks and a third to Sensational Gabby in the Empress Stakes. Kimba Bay, trained at Manjimup by Debra Sutton, has been driven in all his 27 starts by Kaiden Hayter for 13 wins and nine placings. He warmed up for Friday night's assignment in fine style by winning the 2597m Bridgetown Cup on Sunday when he dashed to the front after 400m and scored by more than a length from Smokey The Bandit. Woodley has opted to drive Hugh Victor in preference to Hawkeye Bromac, a smart Gloucester Park winner two starts ago who has drawn poorly, out wide at No. 6 on the front line. Leading reinsman Gary Hall jun. will drive Hawkeye Bromac for Bickley trainer Peter Anderson. Forrestdale trainers Greg and Skye Bond hold a strong hand in the race with Simply Susational (Colin Brown) and Jungle Jewel (Ryan Warwick). Simply Susational was most impressive, winning first-up at Gloucester Park on Tuesday of last week when he raced three wide without cover for most of the journey before defeating Hes Ritehererightnow and Quick Reflection. Jungle Jewel finished boldly from eighth (and last) at the bell to be third to Cielito and Kristen Louise over 1730m at Gloucester Park on Tuesday evening. Elson favours Ideal Tyson Blythewood trainer Gary Elson is thrilled at the superb form of stablemates Ideal Tyson and Sprinter, who give him an ideal opportunity to notch the quinella in the Milwaukee Nothing But Heavy Duty Western Crown Classic for two-year-old colts and geldings at Gloucester Park on Friday night. He favours giant Victorian-bred colt Ideal Tyson over the big New Zealand-bred gelding Sprinter. Nathan Turvey has driven Ideal Tyson in his three starts for narrow victories at Pinjarra before a powerful performance to win from Kathleen Betty at Bunbury. Turvey has also handled Sprinter at his four starts for three wins (two at Pinjarra) and one at Gloucester Park and a most unlucky third behind Rich Yankee and Johnny Disco at Bunbury. Turvey will drive Ideal Tyson from barrier two on the front line on Friday night and Tom Buchanan will be in the sulky behind Sprinter. Sprinter's four starts have been in February and March, whereas Ideal Tyson's three starts came in the space of 16 days in January. He won a 2185m trial at Pinjarra on Sunday morning by ten lengths from Bettors Gem, rating 2.0.5 after dashing over the final two 400m sections in 27.9sec. and 29sec Elson is a fan of stallion American Ideal and he bought Ideal Tyson for $24,000 as a yearling in Victoria. The colt's dam is Shezacullen, who won ten times from 58 starts in Victoria. "Ideal Tyson and Sprinter are both big and strong and quick," Elson said. "I fancy Ideal Tyson this week. He surprised me when I took him to trials. He just won all his trials so easily. "Nathan thinks that Sprinter is the better of the two. Sprinter is a ready-made racehorse who knows what to do, whereas Ideal Tyson just does what he has to do. He has yet to be seriously tested." Leading reinsman Gary Hall jun. gave punters a lead when he opted to drive Soho Wolverine in preference to Duschka, who will be handled by Clint Hall. Hall jun. drove the Kevin Keys-trained Duschka at his debut at Gloucester Park on March 3 when the Art Major gelding set a brisk pace and was hampered by a flat sulky tyre in the last lap and was beaten a nose by the fast-finishing Sprinter over 1730m after a final 800m in 57.3sec. Clint Hall then drove Duschka to an all-the-way win over Rich Yankee at Northam on Thursday of last week. Soho Wolverine, trained at Northam by Glenn Elliott, made his debut at Pinjarra on Monday of last week when he led and finished second to Sprinter. Then he led and won from Our Black Betty at Pinjarra on Monday afternoon. Soho Wolverine's dam Fidelius Charm was a smart pacer who won five times as a two-year-old in 2007-08, including the group 2 Sales Classic and Gold Bracelet. Duschka's dam Cassie Rox earned $152,492 from 17 wins and 21 placings from 85 starts. Her dam Snookanite produced Itsallabout Nicole, who scored an easy victory in the Western Crown Classic in April 2009 before winning the group 1 Pearl Classic. Track The Navajo has the credentials Ten years ago Spirit of Navajo won the group 1 Golden Slipper and now her half-sister Track The Navajo has bright prospects of winning another feature two-year-old event, the $19,999 Milwaukee New Fuel Western Crown Classic for fillies at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Track The Navajo, trained at Highbury by Amy Stone, has made a wonderful start to her career, with her first five starts producing wins at Bunbury and Gloucester Park and two placings at Pinjarra and one at Albany. Track The Navajo will start from the inside of the back line in the 1730m event and reinsman Tim Stone will be relying on her trademark strong finishing burst. Track The Navajo made an auspicious debut at Gloucester Park on Tuesday of last week when she was restrained from barrier six on the front line and raced in sixth position before she finished solidly to win from Nina Jane at a 1.59.8 rate over 1730m. The only other winner in Friday night's race is the Garry Butler-trained Mary Catherine, who fared badly in the random draw and will start from the outside (barrier seven) on the front line. Chris Voak, who drove Mary Catherine to a strong win at her debut, at Pinjarra on January 5, gave punters a lead when he decided to drive back-line runner Our Black Betty for Byford trainer Katja Warwick in preference to Mary Catherine and the Ross Olivieri-trained Sheer Rocknroll. Voak drove Our Black Betty at her only start when she finished a six-length second to talented gelding Soho Wolverine at Pinjarra on Monday afternoon. She should be improved by the outing. Stuart McDonald will drive Sheer Rocknroll, the first foal out of Sheer Royalty, who won the 2009 WA Oaks and was retired with earnings of $248,904 from nine wins and seven placings from 33 starts. "I like Sheer Rocknroll," Olivieri said. "She's just learning the caper and ran a nice first-up fourth." .Nina Jane, a half-sister to Shinydes (24 wins) and Gazzella Nera (five) has each-way prospects for Capel trainer Andrew de Campo. At her second start she began from barrier seven, was restrained to the rear, met with a couple of checks and raced three wide before finishing a close second to Track the Navajo at Gloucester Park on Tuesday of last week. Pacific Warrior's class a decisive factor Reinsman Kade Howson advised punters to disregard Pacific Warrior's last-start failure, when last behind Dynamite Dude in the Autumn Championship last Friday week, when assessing the New Zealand-bred seven-year-old's prospects in the $22,500 Alltools Ray Duffy Memorial Pace over 2130m at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Howson, who drives Pacific Warrior for Mt Helena trainer Ray Williams, said that he was hopeful that the gelding's class would be a deciding factor in this week's event in which he is unfavourably drawn on the outside of the front line. "If Shardons Rocket pushes forward and finds the breeze or the front we will join in at some stage and hopefully his class will get him to the top," Howson said. "I think Ray will be aiming Pacific Warrior for the Easter Cup and will kick along with the horse until he has had enough. Then he will have a spell before being set for the interdominion championship series in Perth in November and December." Oakford trainer Ross Olivieri predicted a strong showing from Our Blackbird, who has a losing sequence of 19. Our Blackbird, who will start from barrier three on the front line, caught the eye at his latest appearance, at Gloucester Park last Friday night when he was a 55/1 outsider and was eighth (and last) at the bell before flying home with a spirited late burst out wide on the track to dead-heat for fourth behind stablemate Sensational Gabby over 2536m. He finished less than a length from the winner. "He charged home, rather like the way Sensational Gabby finished when fifth behind Dynamite Dude the previous week," Olivieri said. "I don't underestimate Shardons Rocket or Pacific Warrior, but Our Blackbird could be a leader or a sitter and play a part in the finish. "His run last week got me. We've been waiting for him to do something a bit better than what he's been doing. Let's hope his latest run is a sign of better things to come. He has had a lot of problems and we have sorted most of them out." Boyanup trainer-reinsman Justin Prentice warned punters not to disregard Braemoor, who is handily drawn at No. 2 on the front line. "His past two runs have been super," Prentice said. "Obviously, I would have liked to have drawn one. But he could cross and find the front, and if he does he will give the others something to chase." Prentice also said that he gave stable runners The Parade, Dardy Delight, Sparkling Seelster and Miss Madoff sound each-way prospects. by Ken Casellas    

Master harness racing trainer Gary Hall is having difficulty in controlling his enthusiasm over Beaudiene Boaz. Having already mapped out an ambitious program for the lightly-raced colt, Hall believes Beaudiene Boaz has the potential to follow the hoof prints of recently-retired superstar Im Themightyquinn. Such is his confidence in the son of Badlands Hanover, Hall believes he is unbeatable in Friday night’s 40,000 Caduceus Club Classic at Gloucester Park. Given Beaudiene Boaz is unbeaten from five Western Australian starts, rivals trainers are all but conceding defeat ahead of the feature. Following this week’s engagement, Hall will set the three-year-old for the WA Derby, but will resist heading interstate this season. With the Golden Nugget high on the agenda next term, Beaudiene Boaz is unlikely to travel anytime soon, especially with the riches on offer locally. “There’s the Inter Dominion in WA for the next three years and the WA Pacing Cup, Fremantle Cup and other big feature events every year,” Hall said. As for his upcoming assignment, Hall believes Beaudiene Boaz is capable of leading throughout from barrier three. “The plan will be to go forward,” Hall said. “We will see what the other runners want to do. If they want to get in a war, so be it. “Beaudiene Boaz won last Friday night when he sprinted over the final quarter in 27.1 seconds with the ear plugs still in place. “We haven’t got to the bottom of him and don’t really know what will happen when we find a horse who can actually go with him. “It’s exciting to wonder what he’s capable of. I’m sure he is capable of running a quarter in about 26.5 seconds without any trouble. “He is as good as any three-year-old I’ve ever had. He is a better three-year-old than Quinny was. “At that age Quinny wasn’t as professional as this horse. He had a lot of problems; he wasn’t tractable and pulled too hard. “Beaudiene Boaz is on a par with Alta Christiano, who scored a runaway victory in the 2013 WA Derby.” The Hall family has enjoyed considerable success in the Caduceus Club Classic, with the patriarch preparing the quinella last season when his son Clint scored with Elegant Christian and Gary junior was second with Machtu. Hall previously won the event with The Falcon Strike (2001), Ulrich (2004), Gracias Para Nada (2012) and Northview Punter (2013). Junior’s victories have come with Latte (2003), Ulrich, Alberts Fantasy (2006), Gracias Para Nada and Northview Punter. KEN CASELLAS

Ace harness racing trainer Ross Olivieri predicts ‘the sky is the limit’ for Dynamite Dude and is bubbling with confidence ahead of Friday night’s Autumn Championship at Gloucester Park. Olivieri has formulated ambitious plans for Dynamite Dude, declaring the gelding has the ideal make-up and the ability to be a major player in the $1.8million TABtouch Inter Dominion in Perth next November and December. Those plans involve sending the six-year-old for a well-earned spell after his feature race appearance. Dynamite Dude has drawn the prized pole and Chris Lewis looks set to attempt an all-the-way victory over the 2130-metre journey. Lewis led throughout with the Olivieri-trained Sensational Gabby in last week’s $50,000 Empress Stakes, but he looks certain to opt to drive Dynamite Dude in preference to the mare, which will start from gate six. Chris Voak appeals as the likely replacement behind Sensational Gabby. Olivieri revealed he had planned to send Dynamite Dude for a spell after his strong, hard-working victory off 20 metres in a 2503-metre stand a fortnight ago. “He dug very deep to win that race and that’s why I didn’t run him the following week,” Olivieri said. “I was going to tip him out, but he was bouncing around the paddock so well after his latest race that I thought I would roll the dice one more time. “However, I’m going to tip him out after this run, win, lose or draw.” Most believe Dynamite Dude is simply a standing-start specialist, and with good reason, considering he is unbeaten from nine starts in stands for Olivieri, while he has won only twice from his eight runs in mobiles. Olivieri scoffed at the perception, explaining Dynamite Dude had drawn the front line only once from behind the gate. “Dynamite Dude gets away smartly in mobiles,” Olivieri said. “He’s not lightning, but is quick enough to hold his ground. “He has been in a mobile trial at Pinjarra in which he drew one and was able to lead comfortably and win. He’s got enough gate speed and I am expecting him to hold up. “Pacific Warrior is going very well, but from barrier five he’ll have to do some work, and I think any horse will have to worry if he races outside Dude. “You know that Dynamite Dude is not going to toss the towel in. “Looking at the Inter Dominion, I think he’s the sort of horse who will be suited by the three heats and Final in the space of a fortnight. “I think he’s got more improvement in him, and once you get him fit, you don’t have to work him too much between races…just line up - he’s got the constitution and toughness to stand up to this type of series racing.” KEN CASELLAS

Oakford trainer Ross Olivieri predicts harness racing mare Sensational Gabby will improve on last week’s effort and has excellent prospects of winning the Empress Stakes at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Sensational Gabby registered fighting half-length second to Indomitable when first-up for a month. “That was her first run for five weeks and she will be fitter this week,” said Olivieri, who boasts three wins in the Empress Stakes. “She sat in the breeze, and probably in hindsight, you would have liked her to have put a bit more pressure on Indomitable early. But then again that might have been to our detriment.” Although he feels barrier four makes Sensational Gabby’s task harder, Olivieri’s confidence grew after Indomitable drew the outside of the front row. Indomitable led throughout from the pole last week, while Sensational Gabby worked over time in the ‘death seat’. Sensational Gabby will be driven by champion reinsman Chris Lewis, who is aiming for an incredible eighth success in the Group Two. Lewis’ previous wins were with Candy Nacray in 1988, Armbro Lucy (1992), Meggie Dear (2001), Classical Mover (2002), Shes Royalty (2007), Ima Spicey Lombo (2011) and Sensational Gabby (2014). Victory will also see Sensational Gabby join an elite sorority, with only three mares completing multiple wins in the feature’s 46-year history. Bellagena was the ground breaker in 1971 and ‘72), followed by Kiwi Cloud in ‘77 and ‘79 and Golden Goddess, which is the only triple winner thanks to her triumphs in 1997, ’98 and ‘99. KEN CASELLAS

Northview Punter is tough and durable and star harness racing driver Gary Hall junior is hoping that his decided edge in class over his rivals will carry him to victory on Friday night. Northview Punter is engaged in the Gloucester Standardbreds RWWA Cup at Gloucester Park and faces a tough task from his outside of the second row draw. Champion trainer Gary Hall also is holding out hopes the five-year-old, the youngest runner in the race, will make amends for his narrow defeat in the Cup 12 months ago when the New Zealand-bred stallion set the pace from barrier three before finishing a neck second to the fast-finishing Hokonui Ben. Northview Punter gave a sample of his class when he finished second to David Hercules in the Fremantle Cup and third to My Hard Copy and David Hercules in the WA Pacing Cup last month before he revealed great fighting qualities to work hard in the breeze and win the Lord Mayor’s Cup. Northview Punter warmed up for this assignment with a smart trial win at a 1:58 over 2150 metres at Byford last Sunday when driven by Alysha Johnston. “It was a good trial,” said Hall junior, who has driven the horse to 15 of his 22 wins. “Northview Punter sat behind the leader Zacs Nugget before pulling out down the back and winning comfortably from Ben Cartwright.” “It’s a good race on Friday night and it won’t be easy. I imagine that Northview Punter will start somewhere close to favourite, but he won’t have everything his own way from his wide draw over 2130 metres. “His best form is near the lead, and he’s not going to get near the lead early from that barrier.” KEN CASELLAS

Although he is a master at producing pacers for first-up wins, champion harness racing trainer Gary Hall has set himself a formidable challenge heading in Friday night’s Gloucester Park meeting. Hall will produce inexperienced filly Nuala fresh for the $50,000 Schweppes Dainty’s Daughter Classic. The New Zealand-bred Nuala will enter the Group Two for three-year-old fillies at her third start and at her first appearance for 172 days. In a highly unorthodox preparation, and a bold approach to a feature, Hall has not given Nuala any lead-up starts, preferring to get her ready by running her in a 2150-metre trial at Byford on each of the past three Sundays. Driven by Clint Hall, Nuala has not been extended in winning the three trials by margins of six, 45 and 30 metres. In her latest trial, in a field of five, Nuala beat Bettor Twisted by 10 lengths after dashing over the final two quarters in 28.6 and 28.4 seconds. Nuala has drawn favourably at barrier two, but the daughter of Changeover faces a stern test in the battle for early ascendancy. Drawn on her inside is Delightful Jade, a filly blessed with sparkling early speed and a noted frontrunner. Along with being first-up from a spell, Nuala is the only filly who has not raced at Gloucester Park. She has earned just $8735 as a result of two wins, while her 10 rivals have won 54 races and earned a combined total of $614,231 - a healthy average of $61,423. Hall is no stranger to success in the event, having captured last year’s edition with Majorly Foxy Styx, which led throughout with Hall’s son, Gary junior, in the cart. KEN CASELLAS

New Zealand-bred four-year-old Classic American is a brilliant harness racing frontrunner who has not been beaten when he has set the pace and the classy stallion should maintain that record when he contests the $50,000 group 2 Channel Nine Binshaw Classic over 2130m at Gloucester Park on Friday night. He has made the running in four of his 26 starts and has won those four races by margins of 22.5m, 9.3m, 13.7m and 12.2m --- an average winning margin of just under five lengths. He has drawn the prized No. 1 barrier for only the second time in a burgeoning career of 12 wins and five placings for stakes of $150,000 and Clint Hall should have little difficulty in dashing him straight to the front and dictating the terms of the race. Two of the first three winners of the Binshaw Classic have started from the No. 1 barrier and at odds-on before setting the pace and winning comfortably. Please Release Me (Chris Brew) started at 5/4 on and defeated Greyhawk in the 2012 Binshaw Classic before Red Salute (Chris Voak) was favourite at 2/1 on from barrier one and led and won from Western Cullen a year later. Twelve months ago Shnappy was favourite at 3/1 from the No. 1 barrier when he set the pace before wilting to fourth behind 46/1 outsider Marooned (Voak), who stormed home from ninth at the 400m mark to win by a length from Northern Assassin. Classic American is one of four runners from the all-conquering stables of Gary Hall sen. who will be contesting Friday night's Binshaw Classic, the others being Westernator (barrier six), Authorized (seven) and The Court Jester (outside of the back line). Classic American notched his third win in a row when he started out wide at barrier six in a heat of the Binshaw Classic last Friday night and raced three wide early and then in the breeze outside Authorized before getting the upper hand in the final couple of strides and winning by a head at a 1.57.3 rate, with the final 400m being covered in a sparkling 57.5sec. Authorized will be at liberal odds from the outside of the front line this week, as will the consistent Westernator from barrier six. The Court Jester, a stylish first-up winner last Friday week, was a sound fourth behind Erskine Range last week. But his prospects appear slim from the outside of the back line. Looming as the chief rival to Classic American this week is five-year-old Erskine Range, who gave a bold frontrunning display and sprinted over the final quarter in 27.3sec. to win easily from Rockyourbaby at a 1.57.5 rate last Friday night. That was his 17th win from 51 starts and trainer-reinsman Colin Brown will be aiming to take full advantage of the inside of the back line by following Classic American every inch of the way before hoping to gain a clear passage in the final stages. Walter James, trained at Forrestdale by Brad Lynn, rated 1.57.8 when he led from barrier one in a qualifying heat last week. He is favourably drawn in the final at No. 2 on the front line, but he is most unlikely to be able to cross Classic American in the early contest for the lead. Mark Reed to resume after injury Ace reinsman Mark Reed has high hopes of returning to action after an injury on a successful note when he handles promising young mare My Samantha Jane in the first heat of the Lewis Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night. A fractured scaphoid bone in his right hand prevented Reed from driving at last Friday night's meeting. My Samantha Jane, a New Zealand-bred four-year-old, will start from barrier three on the front line and trainer Mike Reed said that his son would be the making a bold bid to dash the mare to an early lead and to dictate terms in front in the 2130m event. Mark Reed was injured last Saturday week when a horse at his father's stables became caught in a box and lashed out at him, striking him a painful blow on the right hand. A plaster cast was fitted to protect the thumb and then was removed and replaced with a fibreglass guard. "Mark will be able to drive okay," said Mike Reed. "But the whip action is going to be a problem and he said that he would use the whip in his left hand." Mike Reed said that My Samantha Jane, a winner at each of her past three starts after racing without cover at Northam twice and at Bunbury, possessed good gate speed and was a tough performer. "If she leads on Friday night, she will be rolling and will be very hard to beat," he said. The Reed stable has a handy second string in Friday night's event in five-year-old mare Mon Lamour, who will be handled by Clint Kimes from an unfavourable barrier at No. 4 on the back line. Kimes drove Mon Lamour from the No. 1 barrier to a smart all-the-way victory over 2130m last Friday night. The main dangers to My Samantha Jane (a winner at eight of her 28 starts) appear to be Dardy Delight, Murano Mystery, Im A Peregrine and Better Than Money. Dardy Delight, to be driven by his trainer Justin Prentice from barrier two on the back line, is racing consistently, with his past 16 starts producing four wins, four seconds, three thirds and three fourths. He fought on doggedly when a last-start second to Classic American in the $50,000 San Simeon Classic last Friday week. Murano Mystery, a last-start second to The Black Lord at Northam, looks sure to be prominent from the inside of the back line and Im A Peregrine, with four wins and five placings from his past 12 starts, is capable from a strong effort from barrier six on the front line. Better Than Money, a New Zealand-bred seven-year-old, will be making his West Australian debut for Oldbury trainer-reinsman Donald Harper. He will start from barrier four on the back line at his first appearance since he set the pace and won over 1660m at a 1.55.7 rate at Albion Park on November 15. Better Than Money has raced 93 times for 13 wins, 32 placings and stakes of $93,038. He won five times in New Zealand before winning eight races in Queensland. High Courage looks a star bet New Zealand-bred four-year-old High Courage is a noted frontrunner and from the No. 1 barrier on the front line he looks a star bet in the 2130m Nine News Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night. The stallion, prepared by leading trainer Gary Hall sen., will be driven by 19-year-old Lauren Jones and he should set the pace and win. He has set the pace eight times in his 29-start career for seven wins and a second placing. At his most recent appearance he started from barrier five and worked hard without cover for much of the 2692m journey before winning from Black N Bettor at Pinjarra last Monday week. High Courage is likely to receive the most serious opposition from Chief Thundercloud, Ti Amo Franco, Courage Tells and Mighty Flying Thomas. Chief Thundercloud, to be driven by Stuart McDonald, has been a model of consistency for Oakford trainer Ross Olivieri, with his nine starts this season producing four wins, four seconds and a fourth placing. Ti Amo Franco also is in grand form and has the ability to figure prominently in the finish. A new experience for Max Meridius Five-year-old Max Meridius is one of the State's most promising sit-sprinters in restricted company and he will be strongly fancied in the 2130m Channel Nine Westbred Pathway Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night when he will start from the prized No. 1 barrier on the front line for the first time in his career. Trained at Jandabup by Glenn Stampalia, Max Meridius will be handled by Brad Stampalia, who has been in the sulky for all of the gelding's 18 starts for four wins and nine placings. Brad Stampalia had no hesitation in taking the drive behind Max Meridius ahead of Tyler Diamond, a redoubtable veteran he has driven at 22 of his past 24 starts. Tyler Diamond, who has been driven to victory five times by Stampalia, will start from barrier four on the back line with Colin Brown in the sulky. Max Meridius covered a lot of extra ground when fifth behind My Samantha Jane at Northam on Thursday of last week. He enjoyed an ideal passage, one-out and one-back, before finishing fast to win from Villa Couture over 1609m at Bunbury five nights earlier. Max Meridius showed reasonably good gate speed early in his career when he was placed at Gloucester Park and Northam after working hard in the breeze. It is debatable whether Stampalia will make a serious bid to set the pace on Friday night or prefer to take a sit behind speedy beginner Fully Zapped, who is favourably drawn at No. 2. The Ross Olivieri-trained Out Back Joe is sure to be strongly fancied, even from barrier six. The five-year-old has finished determinedly at his past four starts for a win at Northam, a second at Pinjarra and a third and second placing at Gloucester Park. Shardons Rocket looking for unusual treble Veteran pacer Shardons Rocket has bright prospects of completing a rare treble by overcoming the back mark of 20 metres and winning the 2503m The Block Triple Threat Handicap at Gloucester Park on Friday night. The Tony Svilicich-trained ten-year-old, a hardy veteran of 193 starts, has been successful on the corresponding program featuring the Binshaw Classic in the past two years. Driven by Chris Lewis, he started from 20m and finished strongly from the rear to beat Dalvey Gold in February 2013 and a year ago he set the pace and beat the fast-finishing Rojen Cruz in an $8000 claimer. In February 2012, on Binshaw Classic night, Shardons Rocket, driven by Aldo Cortopassi, sustained a powerful finishing burst to be second to outsider Rigatoni. This week Shardons Rocket will be driven by Colin Brown, who is certain to make a forward move early in the race to sit outside the pacemaker, or even to take the lead. Shardons Rocket set the pace in the 2130m Lord Mayor's Cup last Friday night and was overhauled in the final stages to finish a head second to Northview Punter. This followed a second to Bettor Reason at Pinjarra and a nose second to Northview Punter over 2536m at Gloucester Park. To win Shardons Rocket, who has raced 193 times for 32 wins and 65 placings, is likely to have to overcome spirited opposition from the Ross Olivieri-trained Dynamite Dude and Finbar Abbey, impressive last-start winner Thumpem, Soho Jackman and Braemoor. Majorly Foxy Styx to run at Melton Talented four-year-old Majorly Foxy Styx, winner of the group 1 $100,000 Mares Classic at Gloucester Park in December for champion trainer Gary Hall sen., will contest the group 3 Ladyship Cup at Melton on Saturday night for Victorian trainer Michael Stanley. Majorly Foxy Styx, owned by West Australian businessman Robert Watson, will start from the inside of the back line, immediately behind stablemate Blucolla Tigerpie. Majorly Foxy Styx, who has earned $177,365 from ten wins and five placings from 22 starts, set the pace and defeated Victorian mare Bellas Delight in the Mares Classic. Bellas Delight is favourably drawn at barrier two on the front line in Saturday night's $30,275 event. Blucollar Tigerpie, a seven-year-old on an M7 mark, has a losing sequence of 19. She won the group 1 Tasmania Oaks in Hobart in March 2011 and has earned $212,277 from 19 wins and 15 placings from 66 starts. One of the main fancies on Saturday night will be the Victorian-bred six-year-old Beauty Secret, who will be driven by Gavin Lang for trainer Emma Stewart. Beauty Secret, a winner at five of her past six starts, has earned $388,366 from 24 wins and 12 placings from 52 starts. Bettors Fire fancied in Narrogin Cup New Zealand-bred six-year-old Bettors Fire should appreciate a drop in class and win the $30,000 Narrogin Cup on Thursday night. Bettors Fire, trained and driven by Kyle Harper, will start from barrier three on the back line in the 2662m mobile cup in which his rivals include 2014 WA Pacing Cup winner Hokonui Ben and Pacific Warrior, who finished a sound sixth behind Northview Punter in the Lord Mayor's Cup at Gloucester Park last Friday night after his unlucky close-up fifth behind My Hard Copy in the 2936m WA Pacing Cup at his previous start. Bettors Fire, a winner at 24 of his 54 starts, was a fading ninth in the WA Pacing Cup last month, a week after his excellent fourth behind David Hercules in the Fremantle Cup. by Ken Casellas

Harness racing’s man of the moment Clint Hall has opted to drive My Hard Copy in preference to four stablemates in Friday night’s Lord Mayor’s Cup at Gloucester Park. Hall has developed an affiliation with the five-year-old, which has drawn the outside of the front line in the 2130-metre feature. Fresh from his dazzling last-to-first with My Hard Copy in the WA Cup a fortnight ago and a career best four winners last Friday night, Hall warned punters the New Zealand-bred stallion was far from a certainty in the Cup. “Yes, of course he can win,” Hall said. “But the outside barrier will make it tough. I’m going to stick with him for obvious reasons. From barrier seven I wish Friday night’s race was over 2936 metres like the Pacing Cup and not 2130 metres. “This is a much harder task than the Pacing Cup, even though the calibre of horses is not as good. “I will assess my options early. I’m not trying to talk him down, but I have a feeling that he will be at odds-on which is well and truly under the odds. “He won from a much more favourable draw (barrier two on the back line) and paid $11 two starts ago, in the Fremantle Cup Consolation.” My Hard Copy was a 17/1 chance when he started from barrier seven in the Pacing Cup. Hall has chosen to drive My Hard Copy in preference to Northview Punter (barrier six), Bettor Reason (four), Some Kinda Tactics (five) and Soho Jackman (10). Hall’s father, champion trainer Gary, has a splendid record in the 48-year history of the Lord Mayor’s Cup, having won the race five times --- Tricky Bey (1994), Abit Rich (1997), Live To Reign (2007), Talk To Me Courage (2010) and Livingontheinterest (2014).

Harness racing driver Clint Hall, on a high after partnering outsider My Hard Copy to victory in last week’s WA Pacing Cup, looks set to continue his rich vein of form. Hall will replace his brother, Gary junior, behind talented pacer Classic American in Friday night’s San Simeon Classic at Gloucester Park. Junior drove Classic American to an impressive heat victory, but will miss the decider through suspension. Gary received a two-week ban for causing interference in the Pacing Cup. Generally regarded as a sit-sprinter, Classic American showed his versatility in his qualifier when leading throughout from barrier four, rating 1:57 over 2130 metres. The other heat winners - Ultimate Major (1.58.3), Jasper Freeway (1.56.3) and Erskine Range (1.59.3) - all set the pace and won convincingly. After drawing the pole, however, Classic American has been installed an odds-on favourite to continue his winning ways. Trainer Gary Hall is confident the son of American Ideal will prove too slick in the Group Two. “He’s going to lead and prove hard to beat,” Hall said. “Judging by the way he went last week you would think he’ll be hard to beat. “He is not just a sit-sprinter; he can roll, and I think he can roll a quick time.” KEN CASELLAS

Harness racing driver Clinton Hall and the five-year-old American Ideal horse My Hard Copy NZ produced an outstanding run from last to first to win tonight's spectacular $400,000 TABTOUCH WA Pacing Cup at Gloucester Park in Perth. The time for the 2936 meter race was 3:34.1 with a mile rate of 1:57.4. My Hard Copy NZ won going away from a brave David Hercules who sat parked out for most of the race and then followed Northview Punter third and Our Jimmy Johnson NZ only a nose away fourth. It was start number 52 and win number 18 for the former New Zealander My Hard Copy NZ who now has won $446,497 in stake money won. My Hard Copy NZ was bred by Woodland Stud and is owned by S. K. Champman, C. Champman and D. Champman. He paid $18.20 to win. The win was also one of six winners on the ten race program for the Gary Hall stable for the evening, the others were Soho Lennon, Some Kinda Tactics NZ, Beaudiene Boaz NZ, Ben Cartwright and Classic American NZ.

The first appearance at Gloucester Park of richly talented harness racing performer Our Jimmy Johnstone will be a highlight of the 10-event program on Friday night. The former Kiwi will start from barrier six in the second heat of The West Australian Nights of Thunder and his clash with classy pacers Classic American and Im Riddick is sure to provide plenty of fireworks. Our Jimmy Johnstone is a noted stayer and standing-start performer, but he certainly cannot be underestimated in the mobile event over the 1730-metre sprint. Trained at Forrestdale by Greg and Skye Bond, Our Jimmy Johnstone warmed up with an impressive trial win at Byford last Sunday morning when led from barrier four in 1:57 over 2150 metres. The six-year-old has raced 29 times for 10 wins, seven seconds and three thirds for $145,934 in prizemoney. He has contested five mobile events for two wins, a second, a third and an eighth. He made an auspicious Australian debut when he started from a 20-metre, quickly worked to the lead and outclassed his rivals over 2631 metres. That was his first appearance since finishing seventh behind champion mare Adore Me in the $714,000 New Zealand Cup at Addington five weeks earlier. KEN CASELLAS

Outstanding harness racing prospect Machtu has recovered from a debilitating virus and will resume racing in the first heat of The West Australian Nights of Thunder at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Trainer Gary Hall has entered the four-year-old in the series in a bid to make an ‘eleventh-hour’ claim for a start in the $400,000 TABtouch WA Pacing Cup on January 16. “He’s over the virus and is going very well,” Hall said. “His preparation is a bit rushed, but he worked extremely well on Saturday morning and I’m quite happy with him. I’m hoping he can force his way into the Pacing Cup.” Machtu will begin wide at barrier five in Friday night’s 1730-metre sprint and will need to be close to his top to win against quality opposition, most notably the richly-talented Bettor Offer, which is ideally drawn at barrier three. The pace is destined to be a ‘cracker’, with Apache Kid (barrier one), All Bettor (two) and Bettor Offer all blessed with abundant gate speed. Bettor Offer makes tremendous appeal as he is a superb frontrunner which has also shown wonderful tenacity when forced to work hard in the breeze. Two starts ago he raced three-wide early and then without cover before fighting on determinedly to finish second to Waylade in the 2536-metre McInerney Ford Classic. A week earlier he raced three-wide for much of the journey when a great third behind Waylade and Vc Manoeuvre in the 2130-metre Four-Year-Old Championship. That followed all-the-way wins at Pinjarra, Northam and Gloucester Park at his three previous outings. KEN CASELLAS

Star harness racing performer David Hercules is poised to make the Village Kid Sprint a one-act affair after drawing ideally in the Group Two at Gloucester Park on Friday night. The West Australian-bred pacer will be at very short odds to go one better than his second behind the front running Hokonui Ben in last season’s edition of the feature From barrier three driver Morgan Woodley will be aiming to burst to the front and set a fast pace with David Hercules, which resumed from a 15-week absence with a superb victory a fortnight ago. Produced in grand shape by trainer David Thompson for his first-up triumph, David Hercules has the natural speed and brilliance to threaten the track record of 1.53.1 set by Livingontheinterest in June 14, 2013. David Hercules finished third on that occasion. As it stands, David Hercules holds the track record for 1700 metres (1.52.8) and 2130 metres (1.53.6). The son of American stallion Artesian, David Hercules has been an outstanding bargain for David Botha and Jeneen Johnson, with his 94 starts producing 34 wins, 31 placings and stakes of $896,444. As for dangers in the $60,000 dash, brilliant mare Sensational Gabby shapes as the ‘most likely’ from barrier four. Despite her lacklustre sixth last week, Sensational Gabby’s form has been first rate this preparation, with her victories including the Members’ Sprint, Stratton Cup, Mount Eden Sprint and Norms Daughter Classic. KEN CASELLAS

Six-year-old Tuxedo Tour went within a whisker of causing a major upset last Friday night when he ran home with great determination to finish a head second to 5/1 on favourite Heez On Fire and he gets a chance to turn the tables on his brilliant rival when he meets him on better terms in the $35,000 Kennards Hire Christmas Gift final at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Tuxedo Tour, trained at Herne Hill by Kevin Keys, started from barrier three on the back line and settled down in ninth position before he surged forward to move to the breeze on the outside of the pacemaking Heez On Fire with 1200m to travel in a heat of the Gift last week. Heez On Fire, who was untroubled to lead from the prized No. 1 barrier, fought on grimly to stave off the late challenge from Tuxedo Tour, with the final two quarters being covered in 28.9sec. and 27.6sec. This week Tuxedo Tour will start from the No. 3 barrier on the front line, with Heez On Fire out at barrier five. Noted frontrunner Dashing Christian is likely to lead from the No. 1 barrier and there is a strong possibility that Tuxedo Tour will again have to work hard in the breeze. All Bettor (barrier two) and Ti Amo Franco (four) possess good natural gate speed and Chris Lewis will be anxious to slot Heez On Fire into a commanding position in the one-wide line. Heez On Fire is extremely versatile and is capable of unwinding a dazzling finishing burst, like he revealed when he thundered home from the rear to win from Medley Moose two starts ago. Despite his awkward draw, Heez On Fire is likely to start a short-priced favourite in his quest to extend his winning sequence to six and improve his record to 15 wins and four placings from only 27 starts. The WA-bred five-year-old was purchased as a four-month-old weanling by Cardup trainer Rod Oliver for $15,000 and has already amassed $178,005 in prizemoney for Oliver, his mother Doreen, brother Perry and friends Andrew Walker, Geoff Ramm, Darrell Dwyer and Kieren Eiffler. Tuxedo Tour has earned $122,876 from 11 wins and 18 placings from 41 starts after being purchased for $18,000 at the 2010 Gloucester Standardbred yearling sale by Tom Marsden, who races the stallion in partnership with his son Rod and Martin, Colin and Stephen Campbell. The Christmas Gift is one of the very few feature events in WA that has not been won by Lewis, who is in devastating form in the sulky. Champion trainer Gary Hall sen. is hoping that Dashing Christian can go one better than he did in a qualifying heat last Friday night when he set the pace and was overhauled in the final stride and was beaten by a head by the fast-finishing Mosquito Buzzin. Hall won the Christmas Gift for the fifth time when Kim Prentice drove the polemarker and 6/4 on favourite Toretto to a comfortable all-the-way victory over Our Major Mark and Red Salute 12 months ago. This followed wins with Nixons Creed (1993), Allioop (2004), McRaes Mate (2007) and Livingontheinterest (2012). Ti Amo Franco, trained in Collie by Dale Jackson, will have admirers from barrier four on the front line. He began brilliantly from the No. 5 barrier in a heat last week, but was unable to cross Dashing Christian. He then obtained a good sit, one-out and one-back, and moved to second on the home turn before wilting to fourth behind Mosquito Buzzin. He won in good style at two of his three previous starts. Matt White will resume as Mosquito Buzzin's driver this week after Aiden De Campo handled the six-year-old last week. De Campo will replace Chris Voak behind Mosquito Buzzin, with Voak on the sidelines serving a 19-day suspension after causing interference in a race last Friday night. Mosquito Buzzin has drawn ideally on the inside of the back line and should enjoy a perfect sit behind the likely pacemaker Dashing Christian. Woodley to drive This Time Dylan Outstanding young reinsman Morgan Woodley has been engaged to drive strong stayer This Time Dylan in the $22,500 Mount Eden-No Dill Christmas Handicap at Gloucester Park on Friday night and the nine-year-old looks capable of fighting out the finish of the 2503m stand at his fourth appearance after a spell. Woodley, who will be driving This Time Dylan for the first time, replaces Justin Prentice, who was in the sulky last Friday night when the gelding was prominent throughout and sustained a solid three-wide run to finish third behind Lisharry and Some Kinda Tactics in a 1730m sprint, with the final 800m being covered in a sparkling 55.6sec. Prentice was committed to driving Dardys Delight, a five-year-old he trains at Boyanup. Dardys Delight, who will share the front line with the Ross Olivieri-trained Chief Thundercloud, rises considerably in class, but is in sound form, with his past six starts (all in stands) producing two wins, two seconds and two thirds. Before that he had contested only one stand in 348 starts. He is closely related to Winter Strike, who earned $416,693 from 33 wins and 50 placings from 143 starts. He was a winner of eight stands, six at Gloucester Park and two at Pinjarra. This Time Dylan, trained at Pinjarra by Michael Brennan, will start off the 40m mark, but is capable of a bold showing. He has a losing sequence of 13, dating back to last May when he won a 2503m event off 30m at Gloucester Park. Four months earlier he finished a splendid third behind Hokonui Ben and Toretto in the 2936m WA Pacing Cup. He won four times (all off 10m) over 2503m in September-October 2013 and he impressed when he started off 40m and finished second to Rocket Reign in the 3309m Marathon Handicap in August this year. Some Kinda Tactics will share the 40m handicap with This Time Dylan on Friday night and should also prove hard to beat. He is racing consistently, with his 12 starts this season producing three wins, four seconds and three thirds. Chief Thundercloud, a lightly-raced New Zealand-bred seven-year-old, will be one of the main fancies after having four starts in WA for a win in a 2503m stand and three second placings. He raced without cover for the final two laps when a sound second to the frontrunning Avalon Bromac in a 2536m mobile at Gloucester Park last Saturday night. Olivieri will also be represented by veteran pacers Pembrook Henry and To Transcend and Wanneroo trainer Debbie Padberg will be looking for a stout-hearted effort from 11-year-old mare Salliwood, who will start off 20m and will be handled by Mark Reed,. Salliwood has finished second in the past two Christmas Handicaps. She was driven by Shannon Suvaljko when she finished strongly into second place behind Uncle Kracker in 2012 and then was awarded the race after the winner was disqualified. In last year's race Salliwood set the pace and was defeated by a half-head by the fast-finishing J Walker. It all points to Sensational Gabby Brilliant mare Sensational Gabby looks set to complete her preparation for the $60,000 Village Kid Sprint on Friday week in fine style by proving too speedy for her 11 male rivals in the 2130m Merry Xmas Del Basso Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night. Her prospects soared when she was dealt the No. 3 marble in the random barrier draw and Chris Lewis is likely to make a bold bid to dash her straight to the front. Drawn inside her are Soho Highroller and Go West U Terror, geldings with good gate speed, but susceptible to an early challenge from Sensational Gabby, who can begin with dazzling speed. In the event of Soho Highroller holding up and leading, Lewis would be anxious to gain a good sit in the one-wide line before asking Sensational Gabby to unleash her renowned sizzling finishing burst. She was seventh (on the pegs) at the bell before finishing fast to be third behind David Hercules and Soho Highroller over 1730m last Friday night. Soho Highroller certainly looks the pick of the four runners from the all-conquering Gary Hall sen. stable. He notched his third successive second placing last Friday night when he finished strongly from sixth at the bell to beat all but David Hercules. The prospects of seven-year-old Lisharry completing a winning hat-trick diminished when he drew poorly at No. 5 on the front line. He set the pace for easy victories over 2503m and 1730m on the past two Friday nights. Unbeaten youngsters to clash The clash between highly-promising unbeaten three-year-olds Ima Connoisseur and Zennart in the 1730m Kennards Hire Pace should be a highlight of the ten-event program at Gloucester Park on Friday night. In the blue corner will be Ima Connoisseur, a gelding trained by Greg and Skye Bond who has not tasted defeat in four starts, and in the blue and gold corner is Zennart, a colt trained by Gary Hall sen. who has been most impressive in winning at his only two starts in New Zealand. Ima Connoisseur won by ten and a half lengths at his debut, over 2200m at Alexandra Park in June this year, and then was untroubled to win at Pinjarra at his first three Australian starts, scoring twice over 1684m and once over 2185m. He sprinted the final 400m in 27.3sec. in both his sprint wins and was timed at 27.5sec. when he won over 2185m. Zennart led from barrier three and set the pace when he won easily on debut, scoring by four and a half lengths and rating 1.59.9 over 2200m at Alexandra park on July 25 this year. He sprinted the final 800m in 57.2sec., with the final 400m taking 27.8sec. At his next start Zennart started from the outside in a field of six and was restrained to last (eight lengths from the leader) before moving to fourth at the bell and coming from third (three wide) on the home turn to hit the front 30m from the post to win by a half-length at a 1.59.9 rate. He dashed over the final 400m in 27.9sec. Hall has not produced Zennart at public trials, but the Art Major colt is sure to be strongly supported, particularly when he drew inside of Ima Connoisseur. Zennart will start from barrier five on the front line, with Ima Connoisseur at No. 6. Zennart is a half-brother to Zenas Art, who raced 51 times for 14 wins (four in New Zealand, two in Victoria and eight in New South Wales) for stakes of $100,298. Zennart and Ima Connoisseur look set to fight out the finish and each should develop into a worthy contender for the WA Derby next year. Colin Brown, who will drive Ima Connoisseur in the first event on the program, also has excellent prospects in the second event, the third heat of the Free Entry Boxing Day the Coulson Pace for mares, in which he will drive Harriet Elisabeth for Byford trainer David Thompson. Harriet Elisabeth, a winner at nine of her 25 starts, is ideally drawn at barrier two on the front line in the 2130m event in which she will clash with in-form mares Rivers of Babylon and Washington Express. by Ken Casellas
