Arrangements are being made to send Cool Cobber to the Harness Jewels at Cambridge on June 2.

Cool Cobber moved to eighth in the standings for the $100,000 4-Year-Old Trotters Ruby at the Jewels when winning at Forbury Park on Thursday night. He was driven by co-trainer Robin Swain.

''He got to the line good and I got his last half in 57.4 (seconds),'' Swain, of Knapdale, said yesterday.

Swain and training partner Colin Baynes hope to stable Cool Cobber at Michelle Wallis's Waiuku property for the Jewels trip. Baynes, who owns Cool Cobber, won three races with Catamount from Wallis's stable in 2007.
