Mister Rollins to debut at Wyndham
First starter Mister Rollins will race at Wyndham tomorrow before leaving for West Australia next week.
Mister Rollins has competed three times in public, winning two workouts and finishing second in a qualifying trial. He won by 10 lengths at the Wyndham workouts on January 11.
Gordon and Colin Lee, of Wyndham, train the Lis Mara gelding for Perth owner Alan Bell.
''He's a bit above average,'' Gordon said of Mister Rollins, a candidate for the Willy's Flooring Pace.
The horseman said Moment Of Sun was the stable's main winning chance tomorrow. He declared the Sundon mare as the best trotter to have raced from his stable after her success at Ascot Park last Saturday.
Moment Of Sun will be seeking her third win in seven starts when she contests the Woodlands Motors Ltd Trot.
Lavish Blowback and Shak'n Cullen are also in the Lee brothers' line up at Wyndham.
If Lavish Blowback continues to improve she might be an outside chance to compete in the Southland Oaks next month. She makes her debut in the Rodgers Garage Ltd Pace after qualifying on the course 10 days ago.
''She's a nice filly, does everything right and is pretty genuine,'' Gordon Lee said.
''She has improved in the last month.''
Her unqualified dam, Lavish Bromac, is a half-sister to Australian winners Pacific Playgirl (18 wins) and Benjamin Banneker (10 wins).
Shak'n Cullen produced big runs to win at Omakau (January 2) and finished second at Winton (December 29) at his past two starts.
''He's starting to furnish into a nice racehorse,'' Gordon Lee said.
Shak'n Cullen is in a strong field for the Alabar Mobile Pace tomorrow.
