Paul and Jan Wheeler are on target to claim their third successive Group 1 Rapidvite Peter Mosman Classic, after claiming three of the four semi finals at Wentworth Park on Saturday night (June 8).
Schroder Bale, Quiz Bale and Xylia Allen were all impressive sub 30 second winners on the night and now give the Wheeler team the chance to pick up another $75,000 cheque, following on from Allen Harper (2011) and Garrick Bale’s (2012) efforts.
Standing in their way is a host on talented youngsters including fellow semi final winner, Johnny Fire. Having drawn the treasured red box in the final, Johnny Fire is well positioned to lead the final field, with form analysts already looking forward to seeing whether Xylia Allen (drawn in box two) will be in a position to strike.
Renowned NSW trainer, Jane Carruthers has herself secured two finalists with Clockwise and Triggsy both finishing second to Graeme Bate qualifiers in semi one and two.
Victorian runners Iona Seven and Shadow Lane round out the qualifiers and were both impressive in their respective second placings.
