Race 6 – George Croxford Tribute – This feature race will be worth a total of $25,000 in prize money and contains 2 near full rows of trotters. Higherthananeagle will have the top price here after a solid first up run, resuming after a 6 month break with a fifth place. Second up here and has won his only ever second up start. Will be better for the first up run and could well be the one to catch. Braeview Bondi resumed in style, scoring a first up win after 5 months out. Featured in his only second up start previously and is in good enough form to go one better here. Shez All Rock has made a great start to her trotting career, scoring huge back-to-back race wins in her first two outings. She won on debut at Bendigo by over 8 lengths and followed up with a last start win at Melton by 11 lengths. The extra length will test her, but she looks to be more than capable of handling it.
