Harness Racing: Miller eyes group win

Reinsman Mitch Miller hopes he can continue his impressive start to the season by picking up his first winner of a group feature at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Miller has picked up 27 winners so far in this campaign and will be looking to add to that in the $30,000 Trotsynd Gold Bracelet for two-year-old fillies.

Perfect draw

The 27-year-old will take the drive of Flametree who has landed the much-coveted No.1 barrier in the Group 3 feature that will be raced over 1730m.

Flametree won on debut with Miller in the sulky and they have combined on three other occasions since then - finishing third, sixth and second respectively.

Miller has been delighted with the way Flametree has been improving and hopes to land his first group win after 50 previous attempts.

Improving manners

"Her past couple of runs have been very good because she has been coming from a long way back," said Miller. "Her manners have been improving every week.

"Her manners were the best they’ve ever been last week, and even though she was beaten, she fought on real tough. Barry changed her shoes before last Friday’s race, and she went a lot better. Before that she was cross firing a bit and was racing greenly, like some two-year-olds do.

"They ran good time last week and her effort was full of credit. And last Friday was the best she has left the gate. I think from one this week she should have enough speed to hold up and go pretty close."
