Australian superstar and four time champion of the Interdominion series Blacks A Fake has had very little luck ahead of the first 2011 Interdominion heat running into a red hot field from a difficult barrier.
From gate seven in the unanimously agreed toughest heat he’ll need to work hard if it’s going to notch up a record six appearances in Interdominion grand finals.
His trainer and driver Natalie Rasmussen said her pacer had had an ideal lead up after arriving in Auckland last Thursday.
“I would’ve loved a better draw, but he seems really well and I’m sure he’ll improve a lot on whatever he does this week,” she said.
His major rival in the race is expected to be Auckland Cup and WA Cup winner Themightyquinn.
The top Victorian horse Smoken Up had far more luck and could make the first move of the series.
The Lance Justice trained runner will tsrat form gate six but with questions rising about Auckland Reactor he’s a good chance to take up the lead.
“He handled the trip across really well and the draw is another big plus,” Justice said.
“It’s all falling into place, at least at this stage.”
Auckland Reactor is said to only be a 50 percent chance to start the race with a final decision expected from Mark Purdon any minute.
Smoken Up had his chances lifted even further when Mr Feelgood and Villagem drew gates 10 and 11 on the back row.
