Race 5 – Triple M Hobart 3YO Fillies Championship – This race will be the most lucrative of the night, with a total of $15,000 in prize money up for grabs. Just seven trotters will line up for this feature event, however they are all quality performers which will make this a very entertaining and closely fought race. Ideal Bliss is the form trotter here, having won 5 of her last 6 starts. She ended her winter campaign last year with a win, a second place and a pair of wins, before taking a 6 month spell. She then won first up in December before taking a 2 and a half month spell, before again resuming with a first up win. This will be her first run over more than a mile, but she’s in strong enough form to be seen as a huge win chance here. Karpenkova has had just 4 runs to date, but has featured in three of them. He resumed after a 6 month spell a month ago, scoring a first up win before a last start second place. Will be third up here for the first time. Giftofjoy comes into this race on the back of a last start win while Bouquet Of Roses will be first up here having won first up previously.
