Tough win by My Field Mar­shal

The Press - - Sport-Racing -

The Tim Butt-trained Kiwi flyer My Field Mar­shal over­came a tough trip at Me­nan­gle near Syd­ney to win in 1:51.9 in the 1609m (mo­bile) fea­ture pace on Saturday night.

Driver An­thony Butt was forced to sit three wide from a wide draw, but moved up parked and proved too tough in the run home, beat­ing All­black Stride by a neck. Butt then drove 10-yearold trot­ter Ky­val­ley Blur for ex­pat Kiwi trainer Brent Lil­ley to edge for­mer Kiwi-trained Blaz­ing Un­der Fire by a head in the fea­ture trot in 1:56.8.

Mean­while Cul­len­more over­came a rough trip when sent side­ways by run­ner-up Frankie D with 200m to run at Methven on Sun­day. Cul­len­more (Sam Ot­t­ley) got go­ing again and stormed back to win an event­ful maiden by a head over Frankie D. Hot favourite Stunin Lover ($1.55) added to a in­ci­dent-packed race (2300m mo­bile) when he broke on de­but at the 500m when lead­ing.
