Deven­dra misses In­terDom fi­nal

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport - PETER STA­PLES

TAS­MA­NIAN pacer Deven­dra has missed a berth in the 2017 In­ter Do­min­ion fi­nal after fin­ish­ing last in his third-round heat at Glouces­ter Park in Western Aus­tralia on Fri­day night.

Deven­dra was well-placed to make the fi­nal head­ing into the fi­nal round of heats as he was in sev­enth place on the rank­ings with 17 points. In his heat com­pris­ing nine run­ners, all he needed to do to clinch a spot in the fi­nal was fin­ish no worse than sev­enth.

The Todd Rat­tray-trained and driven geld­ing drew gate three and the trainer-driver made his in­ten­tions clear pre­race that he in­tended to try to lead but Re­becca Bart­ley, the driver of the pole marker San Carlo, had the same idea.
