SEW Eurodrive Markonvina Free For All Preview

SEW Eurodrive Markonvina Free For All Preview

This weekend’s exciting pacing action kicks off on Friday night at Tabcorp Park Menangle with the $20, 000 Markovina Free For All (2240m).

A small but superior field of eight pacers are set to contest the Markovina FFA headlined by Lance Justice’s superstar Smoken Up.

The brilliant Tinted Cloud gelding pushed his career prizemoney to over $1 million last start when he ran a gallant third in the Group 1 Watpac Inter Dominion behind Blacks A Fake, becoming one of Australasia’s highest-earning standardbreds of all time.

Smoken Up, winner of 33 of his 71 career starts to date, has drawn on the outside-front-row with barrier seven on Saturday but his experience and ability mean he is still the hot favourite.

Rivals of Smoken Up who will be looking to sneak in with an upset win in the Free For All include Make Waves drawn well in barrier one, the Lisa Miles-trained and driven Pacific Charm in two and classy Live Or Die gelding Notaswethort coming off a third place in the Geelong Cup starting on the inside of Smoken Up in barrier six.

The other quality pacing feature to be held around the country on Friday night is the $20, 500 XXXX Gold Autumn Championship at Gloucester Park featuring Tealsby Karita and the gifted Has The Answers.

The 2010 Markovina Free For All will take place as the second race at Tabcorp Park’s excellent nine-event programme on Friday night and is due to commence at 7:10pm (VIC time).
