In-form Wagga pacer Twentyeightblack will face his biggest test yet at Riverina Paceway on Friday.
Twentyeightblack has won two of his three starts for Wagga trainer Paul Kahlefeldt since being purchased from the Glenn Wilmot stable in April.
His latest success at Wagga last month took his record to six wins and five minor placings from 12 career starts.
Jared Kahlefeldt has driven the five-year-old at his past three runs and is looking forward to seeing how he goes against the likes of Major Roll and Bettabrown Tiger in the Boulevarde Motor Inn C2 Pace (2270m) at Wagga on Friday.
"He's drawn a good barrier (three) which is a plus for him," Kahlefeldt said.
"You have Jimmy Rattray's (Bettabrown Tiger) out of gate one and Major Roll out wide, they're the two that we've earmarked that will be hardest to beat.
"Our bloke has good gate speed so we'll work forward so we know we'll be at the front somewhere, whether that's leading or death seating. We know he's got a fair bit of ability so we're pretty confident with our runner."
Twentyeightblack has some high profile owners with Tye and Erin Angland and Tommy and Sharnee Berry joining Wagga Harness Racing Club president Terry McMillan, Ryan Robertson, Luke Kelly and the Kahlefeldts in the ownership.
Kahlefeldt enjoys sitting behind the son of Courage Under Fire.
"It's nice to be able to drive a horse you can create a bit of your own luck with without having to rely on luck all of the time," he said.
"The long-term plan is to get him through his grades in the Riverina and if he's good enough, send him to Sydney."
The Kahlefeldt stable will also be represented by last-start winner Seattle Trace in the race as well.
Kahlefeldt rates Soho Beijing as the best of his remaining three drives on Friday, ahead of the ever-consistent Hilly.
