Wallendbeen trainers Lorraine and Jack Roy launch a double shot in a bid for their first Temora Cup (457m) on Sunday night, with Charlie’s Chance and Gunshot Ridge to jump from the inside boxes.
Along with Young’s Gary Kimber (Corleone Kid), the Roys represent local hopes chasing the $10,000 winner’s cheque.
“It’s a hard race, the favourite (Millionaire Max) is going to be very hard to beat,” Lorraine said. “Saying that, Charlie’s Chance has drawn good (box one) and he’s a Wentworth Park winner. Gunshot Ridge is a quicker dog, but it just all depends on the race. I’d have liked him to have drawn eight.”
Gunshot Ridge (17 starts for five wins) dead-heated with Corleone Kid in their heat last week, in 26.20 seconds. It was the equal-second quickest time, behind Millionaire Max’s 26.06. Charlie’s Chance was second in his heat, running 26.32 seconds.
Sunday’s 12-race meeting at Temora begins at 6.07pm, with the feature at 8.21pm.
