Trainer and driver Daniel Redén:
”2 Molle C.D. (V86-2) has felt very good in training but he is not sharpened for a top performance right away. But Molle is Molle, he might pull one off anyway. It’s always interesting when a horse like this competes and I’m looking forward to the new season with him”, says Redén
“7 Miss Sue V. (V86-6) was a bit weak last time, but she needed that run and will be much better with that race under her belt. She competes well with cover and will surely finish high up, but she will not beat 1 Panne de Moteur.”
“13 Debora Sund (V86-8) performed really well last time and showed nice form. The post is poor, but hopefully she’ll catch some luck with the positions. It will be difficult to win, but I think she can earn a piece of the money.”
Trainer Bengt Holm:
”3 Pepe Di Jesolo (V86-4) is chasing his first win on Swedish soil. He’s mainly been unlucky. The horse is good and strong. He is no rocket from the start, but I still think he is quick enough to get ahead of 1 Maranelllo. He will be driven in the lead if he gets there. He must be considered for the win”, says Holm.
Trainer Svante Båth:
”1 Drillbit Ås (V86-1) got tough opening last time and got tired towards the finish. I was still pleased with her and it feels like she is close to her top form. Hopefully she can defend the lead this time. She is up against some good rivals, but I expect her to battle for the win”, says Båth.
“1 Julia Kaulitz (V86-3) was very nice last time when she finished really well. She behaved perfectly, which is promising for the future. The post is perfect and I will not be surprised if she finishes high up in the field. She is not reliable, but she is always an outsider. Will compete without shoes for the first time.”
“8 Bearhawaii (V86-7) won easily last time after a top performance from the horse and the driver. Form is on top and he should be considered for the win, despite the post position.”
Driver Jorma Kontio:
”6 For Life (V86-2) is back from a long layoff and surely needs a few races under his belt. I’ll be pleased with a good effort”, says Kontio.
“7 Västerbo Paymyday (V86-2) is a decent trotter moving up in form. He has better form than what his results show. With some luck he could be a contender to show.”
“10 Beer Summit (V86-3) felt really nice last time when he finished the final lap in 1”10. The competition is much stiffer now. We’ll need to aim for a decent placing from this post on the second tier.”
“11 Queens Annes Lace (V86-8) tags along decently but it’s been a long time since she showed any spark in the finishing battle. We’ll aim for money.”
Trainer Stig H Johansson:
”5 Knifetown Action (V86-2) has had a layoff, but there is nothing wrong with the horse. He feels normal, but he probably needs a few races before he is on top again. The distance is a disadvantage, he performs best over the sprint distance”, says Johansson.
“2 Global Oasis (V86-4) is not fortunate in competition, which you can tell from her results. There is nothing wrong with her form I believe. The post is favorable and I believe she will get a good trip. However, she doesn’t win very often.”
”4 Kaka A.T. (V86-6) has shaped up during the spring after a down period. His last two performances have been very positive. Both times he’s been in the shadows behind Panne De Moteur, which probably will be the case again tonight. Out of my two in this race, I believe Kaka A.T will finish ahead due to the post and his documented form.”
“6 Up Date Hoss (V86-6) got a long winter layoff, but he has been training all along. He feels normal in training but surely needs a couple of races to get his steam up. It will be difficult to win.”
