Ideal draw last piece to the puzzle for Jerilderie Letter

Jan 09, 2017

SPREYTON trainer Adam Trinder revealed at the launch of the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival last month that he longed to win his home town cup.

If the corporate bookmakers are right he has only two days to wait to realise the goal.

Trinder’s talented four-year-old Jerilderie Letter has been installed favourite at $3.40 to win the 2017 Simons Design Centre Devonport Cup over 1880 metres on Wednesday and it is the first time the event has been an official part of the TSRC.

While Jerilderie Letter hasn’t won a race since winning the Tasmanian Derby last year he was placed twice in Melbourne at the end of last season and he has provided two impressive efforts in weight-for-age races at his two most recent outings on home soil which should have him primed to take out the Devonport Club’s premier event.

All the gelding needed was a decent barrier draw and the racing gods smiled on Trinder in that department, with the gelding drawing barrier one.

“When you target good races it is often a barrier draw that decide the hose’s fate and for Jerilderie Letter to draw gate one is perfect,” Trinder said.

“I can’t fault the horse’s condition going into the race and after his gallop on Saturday I can hardly wait for Wednesday.”

The Devonport Cup is race eight on the nine-race card.
