Overport Lodge trainer Mark Jones confirmed top trotter Master Lavros will trial next week before kicking off his 6YO racing season at Addington on October 3.

Master Lavros made a return at the Rangiora workouts on Wednesday, September 17, but wasn’t pushed after losing ground early.

“He missed away bad being so fresh,” Mark said.

“But I was very happy with afterwards.”

Master Lavros wasn’t asked for a serious run in the C1 and faster trot taken out by fellow 40m marker Phil’s Gift, who trotted the 2600m (stand) in 3:26.6 for driver Stevie Golding.

Phil’s Gift, now seven, last raced in March.

He was recording his second Rangiora workout win in this preparation for Woodend trainers Greg and Nina Hope.
