Classy field for sprint
THE feature event at the Coffs Harbour TAB race meeting tomorrow has drawn the best sprint field seen in this area since the Grafton and Coffs Cup carnivals last year.
The Totally Wicked Cup-Sky Channel Gold Cup over 1200 metres carries $25,000 in prizemoney.
Topweight Centre Fire from the Taree stable of Bob Milligan is a class act and fronts up at Coffs tomorrow following a win at Rosehill and then a fourth in Randwick's Carrington Stakes last Saturday at his last two outings.
However, he will have to shoulder 60.5kg tomorrow and overcome barrier 13.
Fellow Taree gelding Leg Irons has drawn one wider than Centre Fire and lines up after a last start win at Canterbury a month ago.
Leg Irons has been freshened up for this race.
To complicate the issue for punters, Trevor Hardy's Johann Lover is approaching peak fitness after two runs back from a spell and talented Grafton sprinter Sir Dan is capable of anything if he puts his mind to it.
There are a couple of roughies also capable of upsetting things.
Zac Purton has elected to ride Bowraville trained Cedar Chief having his second run back from a spell while leading metropolitan trainer Gerald Ryan, who has raging hot favourite Snitzel in today's Magic Millions, is sending last start winner Shockeroo to Coffs tomorrow.
