WIN number three could be just around the corner for Mark Fletcher's Sophie Brown during Wednesday night's meeting at Bathurst Paceway.
The Four Starzzz Shark mare goes out from gate two in the Hynash Constructions Pace (1,730 metres) a fortnight after winning at the same track.
And what a win it was.
Sophie Brown blew the field away to win by over 25m on her home track, despite being caught out three wide for half of the opening lap.
Can Mount Rankin trainer Fletcher notch up two wins in a row?
His mare looks to have strong competition on either side of her.
Walk On Kimmy - who will celebrate her 50th start for trainer Wendy Turnbull - has been in fine form across restricted grade racing this season and has finished second in her past two starts. She gets the inside start.
That most recent second placing came as a favourite against Sophie Brown, meaning a big step up will be required to challenge Fletcher's runner.
Cobbler Lane, racing from Bernie Hewitt's stable, hasn't won a race for over a year but will be taking a step back in class for this race.
The For A Reason Two Year Old Pace (1,730m) shapes up as one of the races to watch on Wednesday night, with several well-bred fillies making their debut.
One of those runners is Hewitt's Talk About Lexy, the first foal out of his Raith Memorial champion and NSW Oaks finalist Read About Lexy.
