Driver Marcus Hultman:
”5 Furyk (V4-3) broke stride in his previous race but made a great comeback. The broken stride was my fault and he is normally a safe trotter. He has had a good form for quite a while now. He has more strength than speed and today’s distance isn’t the best. If there will be a high speed race we have the chance to finish up front,” says Hultman.
Trainer/driver Anders K Brekke:
”4 Quagga (V4-1) has everything in order. She is a fast starter and normally I just let her go. She has done well in training and it feels like she is progressing. I think we have a good chance to win this race,” says Brekke.
Trainer/driver Anders Svanstedt:
”10 Ågårds Mats (V4-1) is a nice trotter that I like. In his last race everything turned out wrong when I pushed him too much. Today he feels great and I think we can be up there if things turn out well,” says Svanstedt.
“6 Send In The Clowns (V4-2) got boxed in last time at V75. Since then he has had a throat infection but is now back in training and is doing well. He has a great capacity and is a very quick starter. I think we have the possibility to race from the lead but maybe we chose to pocket along. I always think I have a chance to win when I race with Send In The Clowns.”
Trainer Eric Martinsson:
”12 Quantum Firefox (V4-2) has a bad post position but my horse has a great form at the moment. He has more strength than speed and likes to work hard in races. There is tough opposition today. Hopefully there will be a high speed race. We are in need of some luck but things can turn out well. An outsider,” says Martinsson.
Trainer Per Fromell:
”15 Simply The Best (V4-4) performed well in his previous race and has done well in training since then. He was in need of racing and I think his form should be better now. He performs best when he can pocket along and go for it at the final home stretch. I won’t be surprised if he finishes up front,” says Fromell.
Peter H Sjöberg from stable Marcus Lindgren:
”2 Ark Went In (V4-2) has been okay bu the went through some treatment during the layoff. He is now well prepared for his comeback. He has done well in training lately. This is the first race towards an expected start at Bergsåker’s V75, the 6th of December. Normally he should be up front,” says Sjöberg.
“13 Alpha de Vandel (V4-4) was supposed to race three weeks ago but he had to be withdrawn due to problems with his throat. I don’t think that has affected his form and it should be okay. Maybe he needs a few more races before hitting top form, but he could be up front already today.”
Trainer Björn Trulsson:
”1 Breezer (V4-3) has a good post position today as he is a very fast starter. The tactics is up to the driver but I think he’ll go for it direct. He did well in his last race and has done well in training. I don’t know that much about the opposition, but I think my horse could be fighting for the win,” says Trulsson.
