Wyong Trainer Damien Lane will supply runners to Taree on Friday, March 16 with clear conditions forecast racing on a current good four with eight events to be run.

The first of the stable runners will see a first starter for the Lane Yard, after 16 previous starts in and around country Victoria in the form of Flying Comet to be ridden by Rachael Murray with the four-year-old mare leaving barrier 1.

Last time out she was seen finishing seven of 9/2000 m 28 weeks ago at Mildura and has had the blinkers removed and a lugging bit added.

She has three career placings and is not a notable first up runner though one of her placings was first up, 2 of her placings have been on a good surface whilst one has been on a soft.

CAREER: 6:0-0-0

Race five will see the unlikely event of Snitzwah compete, as the four-year-old mare has drawn barrier 12 and is currently the fourth emergency to compete in a maiden handicap over 1312m with Damien likely to look elsewhere for the runners next start.

The final event will see the duel nominated Cinema Paradiso looks likely to skip the Kembla Grange nom to race at Taree and will most likely compete in a class 2 handicap over 1257m with Aaron Bullock aboard the five-year-old mare jumping from barrier (7).

CAREER: 23:2-2-3

Cinema Paradiso will have Aaron Bullock take charge with the runner last seen finishing 10 of 11/1400 m three weeks ago at Scone, when contesting a class (2) handicap though she was not overly competitive at Scone and does rise up in weight for this, she has just the one placing this campaign at Quirindi, and any repeat of that performance will see the Starcraft mare run boldly in this.

Best of luck to all connected on Friday at Taree.
