    AT FIRST glance the draws appear to be disappointing, but looks can be deceiving!

    With runners in two majors at Albion Park on Saturday night, Jarrod Alchin’s main chances have drawn the inside of the second row.

    On the surface barrier eight appears to make life difficult for Alchin’s pair, however, the prominent New South Wales horseman is pleased with the starting positions.

    Unbeaten trotter My Ultimate Sunny will begin from eight in The Great Square, while Blazing Home will do likewise in The Rising Sun.

    Alchin will also be represented by Karakajack Tooth in The Great Square, with the three-year-old drawn the pole.

    Winner of his three outings, My Ultimate Sunny will be driven by Cam Hart, with Will Rixon to partner Karakajack Tooth.

    “I’m not worried about the draws at all,” Alchin said. “All things considered, Sunny probably isn’t seasoned enough for the likes of the top four-year-olds, so the draw should give him the chance to get a nice quiet run.

    “I’m not saying he won’t be competitive, he’ll just need the right run against this lot.

    “He will be better suited to the Derby the following week, but this will be a good learning experience for him.

    “Karakajack will enjoy that draw and should get a nice run close to the speed.”

    Rixon will also take the reins behind Blazing Home, which was triumphant at Club Menangle a fortnight ago when first-up from a break.

    “He should get a nice trailing run from there, and if the speed is on, he will be coming home hard,” Alchin said.
