Jaccka Len, heading north after failing to crack a win in Canterbury.

Jaccka Len, held up when clearing traffic at the 300m for Michelle Neilson, finished stoutly when in the clear but came up a neck short in the junior drivers pace.

The Geoff Dunn-trained Better Klik lasted in a solid 1:57.9 rate for the 1950m.

Overport trainer Mark Jones is likely to send the Butterworth Racing Syndciate-owned Jaccka Len north to Ardmore trainer Tony Herlihy, before the horse ultimately ends up in Victoria.

Jaccka Len, a 4YO McArdle gelding, purchased by the Butterworth Syndicate after winning his Winton debut last September, racked up seven seconds and two thirds in 13 starts for the Jones stable, but couldn’t crack a win for the stable.

Meanwhile, ex-Overport Lodge pacer Atom Of Courage continued his good work across the Tasman at Tabcorp Park, Menangle, on Saturday night.

The 7YO Courage Under Fire-Trustee Mota gelding kept kicking for trainer-driver Ashlee Siejka to just hold fellow ex-Kiwi Chardanae in 1:54.1 (1609m) in a $A12,000 free-for-all pace.

Atom Of Courage was racking up his 21st career win from 108 starts, for nearly $A230,000 in stakes, however this was his first since January, 2013.

He has a career best of 1:52.1 over 1609m, set at Menangle in February 2012.
