HARNESS racing trainer Heath Szczypka has had a lot of success with interstate horses that find their way into his care and the latest to make a home at his stables at Underwood could be very hard to beat at her Tasmanian debut.

Five-year-old mare Came Rollin In (Bettors Delight-Summer Wind) landed in Szczypka’s stable last month with good form to her credit.

Her last three starts produced minor placings at Cranbourne and Geelong (x2) suggesting she might not be far off a win.

The meeting kicks off earlier than normal with the first race set to start at 3.53pm and the last at 7.54pm.

The early start is due to the cancellation of the Geraldton (WA) gallop meeting being cancelled and to meet programming requirements Sky Channel requested the Hobart club take over the Geraldton time slots.

Szczypka said Came Rollin In didn’t travel well from Victoria but she has picked up enormously in the last fortnight and he expects her to be competitive on Sunday night.
