Junee trainer-driver Bruce Harpley is hoping Lettuceroll can keep on delivering some much needed cheer.
Lettuceroll is chasing back-to-back wins at Riverina Paceway on Friday after breaking through for his first win at start nine last week.
In just his third run for the stable, Lettuceroll was able to led all the way to provide a special win for the Jenner family.
Previously trained by Katie Jenner at her base near Young, Harpley only took over the horse when the family moved to Sydney for son Clancy to undergo treatment for leukemia.
Harpley was thrilled to be able to help the family out.
"He went good," Harpley said. "It definitely made Katie feel a bit better.
"They get their bonus as well and I'm sure it would be a thrill to have some contact with the horse by watching at least.
"Hopefully he can keep improving."
Lettuceroll has a tricky draw to contend with in the Sheather's Painting Pace.
Jordan Seary will again be behind the reins and will be tasked with navigating a path from the six alley.
Harpley also lines up Slick Blaster in the three-year-old race.
A winner of Evolution Series heat at Wagga last month, before a third in the final at Menangle, Slick Blaster finished fifth last time out.
With another second row to contend with Harpley is hoping for a bit more luck this time around.
"When they slowed up for that 32.8 quarter he started to get above himself and he's better when they are rolling on," he said.
"That is a pretty nice three-year-old so I don't think anything will get to slow up too much in it."
Harpley also has two-year-old Aurelian on debut to open the nine-race card.
He won a trial at Coolamon, but Harpley expects he will take some time.
"He's pretty green and will need a bit of time as he's a real big horse," he said.
"He has ability but it looks like a pretty good field."
Harpley also has good chances at Coolamon's Carnival Of Cups meeting on Sunday with Rubies For Tash to line up in the feature race after a fourth in the Albury Pacers Cup last time out.
