    FLASHY trotter Kyvalley Maven justified the high opinion of him with a stylish victory at Tabcorp Park Melton just moments ago.

    Third in a Home Grown Classic heat upon debut last week, Kyvalley Maven captured the Final in impressive fashion.

    Naturally pleased with the two-year-old, trainer Chris Svanosio revealed Kyvalley Maven had been given a “huge wrap” by astute horseman Ross Payne while being broken in.

    In fact, Payne declared the son of Tactical Landing was potentially the best young squaregaiter he had educated since Blitzthemcalder!

    Trained by Payne, Blitzthemcalder was the premier performer of his crop, winning 16 of his 22 starts as a two and three-year-old, including four Group Ones.

    “Ross broke him in and was impressed with him from the start,” Svanosio said. “Ross said he was the most fluent trotter he’d broken in since Blitzthemcalder, which is a huge wrap.

    “He hasn’t stopped improving and we were pretty confident tonight.

    “I felt he just had to do everything right to win.”

    With Svanosio in the cart, Kyvalley Maven never set a hoof wrong on his way to a four-metre win from Courages Law, with Henrys Horse 20 metres way third.

    Rating 2:01.5 over 1720 metres, Kyvalley Maven’s time was 1.1 seconds slower than Violet Stanford in the fillies’ division.

    Trained and driven by Nathan Jack, Violet Stanford led throughout to remain unbeaten from two starts as Maoris Mac and Centurion Dream filled the placings.

    “Clayton (Tonkin) told me she looked like a nice type and she was about to leave the Sales ring without attracting a bid, so I put my hand up and bought her for $3000,” Jack said.

    “She’ll still got plenty to learn, but hasn’t done a thing wrong and has turned out to be a bargain buy.”
