Favorites include Top Brand (Danny Romo), Windemere Maggie (Brodie MacPhee), Western Judy (Campbell) and Dianna Santanna (John Holmes).

These showdowns will happen Saturday at 6pm in Charlottetown. Red Shores Summerside will feature the two-year-old trotters in the MBA final for $8,600 while the three-year olds race for $7,100.

The son of Western Success has been established at 5-2 odds on the morning line. Super S Yzerman (Clare MacDonald) will have to overcome post 8 in the final but sports a 10 for 12 in top three finishes while the Gilles Barrieau trainees, Tobins Fusion and Settlement Request, are considered top contenders. Barrieau has opted to drive Tobins Fusion with Marc Campbell getting the driving assignment on his other stable star. The field also includes T M Brave Heart (Jason Hughes), Elm Grove Intrepid (Brodie MacPhee), Mr Comraderie (Mike Stevenson) and Rancousy (Darren Crowe). Two-year-old filly sensation Saulsbrook Alana goes into her final riding a six race winning streak. Trainer Kevin MacLean has done a remarkable job with her for owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. Her resume speaks for itself. 11 races with eight wins, one second, two thirds and $43,623 in the bank. Marc Campbell will put her on the gate from post six. The best description of the headliner came from race analyst Les MacIsaac. "Looks like the only thing that's going to stop this filly is the conclusion of the racing calendar." Finalists Elm Grove Inarush (Mark Bradley) and rail-sitter Sail Through (Barrieau) have also put up some big numbers this season but it's going to be tough to knock-off the favorite. The rest of the roster for the filly final will be Sea Anna Win (Earl Smith), Pictonian Sareta (Mike Stevenson), Absolootly Hot (Brodie MacPhee), Outrageous Spirit (John Holmes) and Acton Royal Force (Bernard McCallum). In other action, All Turain has post 6 in the Preferred Pace in race 13 for trainer Trevor Hicken and his-owner Lee Hicken of Charlottetown. This guy has been headlining top classes around the region and comes off that big 1:52.2 performance on Breeders Crown Sunday for Brodie MacPhee.

Fans can also watch and wager from Red Shores Charlottetown. Trainer-driver Garth Cole certainly had some luck with both his horses, Lets Trade Ladies and I Aint No Lady, drawing the rail in their respective divisions. The two-year-old trotters will go to the gate in race 4 with last week's winners Phantom Beau and Saulsbrook Pippa, both trained by John Pineau, leaving from outside posts. That could complicate matters especially with young trotters but the story gets better when Dusty Lane Galaxy drew post 2. This trotter has been dominating the competition but hasn't won since September 12 at the PEI Colt Stakes. Gary Chappell will do the driving for trainer Stacey Lund. The other starters include Scarlet MacDream (Marc Campbell), Hope Chest (Walter Cheverie), Glencove Yoshi (Mike Stevenson) and Villager (Brian MacPhee). I expect to see an upset. Taliesin leads the charge against the three-year-old $7,100 final from post 8 for Campbell. The son of Northern Bailey-Southview Leah was leading by three lengths in the Breeders Crown but rolled off-stride to finish fourth.

The other finalists are Rash Statement (Walter Cheverie), Irish Lullaby (Daniel MacDonald), West River Xcel (Clare MacDonald), Ashotinthedark (Corey MacPherson), Northern Trapper (Brian MacPhee) and Windemere Norma (Kenny Arsenault).
