An ideal draw has rising star Narutac Prince in a prime position to continue his perfect season in Kilmore tomorrow night.
As it stands Narutac Prince is undefeated from five starts for the term, with his latest win coming in an Australian Pacing Gold heat last week.
Rapt with the three-year-old’s performances since joining his stable, trainer David Aiken is positive Narutac Prince will stretch his streak to six when he contests a second round APG heat.
Aiken has every reason to be confident given the son of Art Major has drawn to lead throughout from the pole.
“He hasn’t stopped improving since he got here,” Aiken said. “He’s gotten better with each run and gives the impression there is more to come.
“His work since the first heat has been enormous and he’s right in a zone.
“I’m very happy with the draw as it gives him a strong chance of getting into the Final later in the month.”
Citing Ideal Dan as the main danger, Aiken is also wary of Bondi Lockdown.
A member of the powerful Emma Stewart stable, Ideal Dan will come from gate two.
The highly-rated Bondi Lockdown hasn’t fared so well in the draw and will begin from the outside of the second row for popular horseman Aaron Dunn.
“Ideal Dan will be the biggest threat from the draw,” Aiken said. “Bondi Lockdown is a very nice type, but the second row makes it a bit tougher for him.”
