SEW-Eurodrive Popular Alm Free-For-All Preview

SEW-Eurodrive Popular Alm Free-For-All Preview

Tabcorp Park is set to host a great line-up of exciting pacing features on Friday night, headlined by the $30 000 Group 3 SEW-Eurodrive Popular Alm Free-For-All (2240m).  The race will draw much attention as the winner is exempt from ballot for next week’s coveted $400 000 Group 1 SEW-Eurodrive Victoria Cup.

Heading the field of quality pacers is the defending Inter Dominion champion Mr Feelgood drawn ideally on the inside with barrier one. Driven by Anthony Butt, Mr Feelgood will come up against Maffioso (barrier seven) in his first race since taking out the Chariots Of Fire-Breeders Crown four-year-old double back in August.

Maffioso has displayed very imposing form of late winning his last four from five starts but will have a tougher time on Friday having drawn poorly on the outside front row.

The SEW-Eurodrive Popular Alm Free-For-All is scheduled as race five of the night’s bumper nine race line-up and is due to commence at 8:40pm.
