Harness Racing: Bulletproof Boy poised to strike

Trainer-driver Scott Ewan says his charge Bulletproof Boy has what it takes to come out on top in the Tasco Petroleum Mildura Pacing Cup on Saturday night.

The seven-year-old has been in good form when being placed in five of his last six starts and Ewan is in no doubt he can be in the mix again.

Early action needed

Ewan believes Bulletproof Boy can go on and take the win but is hoping the race pans out in a certain way.

"We just need some action and we need the old True Mildura Style happening in the race, he's definitely a big chance if that can happen," Ewen told TrotsVision ahead of the race,

Bulletproof Boy has not picked up a win since 5th February when he saluted in the Mercury 80 final which was raced over just 1200m.

The Pacing Cup is 2600m with Bulletproof Boy set to start from the outside of the backrow, And Ewan has a game-plan in mind.

Career best form

Ewan says his charge is in career-best form and with the right run can have a chance.

"I think the three, Mailman, is going to be the early leader," he added. "Of course (Boots Electric) gets the run through behind him, so he is out of the better horses going to be the first one there probably.

"Hopefully the lower grade horses are going to make him work hard to get there. If that happens and the better horses have got to get around them and take off, it keeps the mid-race pressure as well then all of a sudden we might be a chance to be dragged into it."
