The much anticipated 2014 Sportingbet Magic Maiden box draw has been released for this Sunday’s, April 6, meeting.

Following a host of sizzling trials at the Glebe circuit recently by runners engaged in this weekend’s Maiden series, the ten heats are expected to receive close attention from punters and racing enthusiasts, with $25,000 on offer to the winner of the three week series. 

In Sunday’s opening heat, well bred Paua To Roar and American Sniper are expected to attract significant wagering attention. Paua To Roar for Nowra based Steve White won his performance trial in 30.23 last week, while American Sniper will improve on his 30.68 first look at the track. 

Heat three features Filante in box one for Victorian trainer Janet Cottrell, which recorded a 29.73 performance trial victory back on March 14. Expected to improve on his first look, Filante meets Larry Keeping, Zipping Lucy and Lochinvar Akira, which all come from well respected kennels. 

Having posted sensational trial times in recent weeks, other runners expected to attract plenty of attention include: Mo Keeping (Race 5 #4), Shakey Jakey (Race 6 #2), Zipping Bruno (Race 7 #8), Xtreme Knocka (Race 8 #4) and All Strung Out (Race 8 #5). 

Huge interest has come for David Pringle prepared Shakey Jakey following his track record performance  trial at Bathurst over the 450metres, three weeks ago. The son of Collision x Kiacatoo Pearl bettered Rima’s 25.60 record by over  three tenths back on March 10, and despite a lack of pace was still able to record at 29.80 performance trial win at Wentworth Park on March 27.

No stranger to feature events, Jason Thompson also looks to have a hot pup on his hands, with Xtreme Knocka recording a 26.13 trial win at Bulli (472m) last Wednesday. He will have to show good speed early to ensure he is infront of strong finishers All Strung Out and Margaret Keeping.

With a host of family activities on course, including jumping castle, maze, magician, plus family meal deal including pizza, garlic bread and drinks for just $20, Sunday’s meeting is a great excuse to get down to Wentworth Park, with first race is at 5.57pm, with gates open at 4pm.
