Tough win by My Field Marshal
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.
