David Druitt is hoping Saucy Dreams can overcome two horror draws as she looks to edge in front in the race to be Wagga Horse of the Year.
The three-year-old filly trails the retired Corbie Abbey by three points with five meetings left at Wagga for the season.
She gets her chance to equal David Eurell’s mare at Wagga on Saturday night.
However Druitt expects she will need some luck from barrier six.
“She’s going really good, but does need a lot more luck with the draws than what she has this week,” Druitt said.
“She’s drawn two barrier sixes.
“Her work is the by far the best of anything I have got at the moment and she worked terrific during the week.”
Saucy Dreams proved too strong at Wagga last time out, leading all the way.
Things will be harder this time, however Jordan Seary has retained the drive.
“He did the job last week and I don’t like taking them off when it is a winning combination,” Druitt said.
“It is not smart in our business and if something works you stick with it.”
She’s also drawn the same barrier for Tuesday night’s meeting.
Druitt has a five-point lead over Paul Kahlefeldt in the battle for the Wagga trainers premiership.
He’s got six horses among the 10 races on Saturday night after rates Elect To Rock as his best chance.
“With the draws Elect To Rock (is the best) but with their track work Saucy Dreams,” Druitt said.
“I think Saucy Dreams will go through her grades, with some luck, in time.
“Her work is terrific and her attitude is really good at the moment.”
She has been a bridesmaid throughout her 44-start career with four wins and 21 placings.
