Bergermeister set to land hat-trick of wins

28 / 02 / 2011 Article by: Editor

TALENTED pup Bergermeister has won his juvenile in Hobart and Devonport and tonight he looks set to register a hat trick of wins when he tackles a juvenile event at his first try on the Launceston circuit.

The Mick Clarke-trained dog showed promise during the Hobart Maiden Thousand series in early January winning a heart and semi-final before suffering multiple checks in the final in which he finished near last.

But he followed up with a juvenile win at Devonport 12 days later and last Thursday week he returned to Hobart to win his juvenile on the U-turn track.

He broke 30 seconds to win his juvenile at Devonport and he clocked a handy 26.28s last start in Hobart.

He has drawn box two tonight and if he produces the early speed that he delivered to win in Hobart then he will be very hard to beat.

Veteran sprinter Eagle Eye looks another good bet on the 10-event card.

The Butch Deverell-trained dog has drawn box one and in the Invitation (515m) but it is only a field of seven and nothing directly outside him is blessed with any great speed.

If he does lead, the rising four-year-old will be very hard to run down.
