FANS of a certain blue hedgehog, along with punters in general, are in for a treat at Tabcorp Park Melton on Friday night.
Two of Victoria’s rising stars will clash in the Choices Flooring By Westside Pace in what doubles an omen quinella for ‘gamers’.
Unbeaten from five starts for the term – and boasting 10 wins from 11 Australian outings – Supersonic Miss has been pitted against Solarsonic, which is also racing in devastating form.
Making a rapid rise through the grades for record-breaking horsewoman Emma Stewart, Solarsonic has scored at his last four outings and is five from six for the season.
Fresh from his success at Cranbourne a fortnight ago, Solarsonic has fared better in the draw, with the son of Village Jasper poised to find the lead from barrier two.
Supersonic Miss will begin from barrier nine for recent All Star Series heroine Kerryn Manning.
Out to upset the pair is exciting mare Ponder Girl, which is in top form for trainer Larry Eastman.
Solid when a first-up fourth at Ballarat last week, the daughter of Ponder had won her previous eight starts in eye-catching fashion. Ponder Girl will begin from barrier five.
