    AS IS often the case – especially with two-year-old trotters – manners will be a key factor in Saturday night’s Nutrien Sales Series Final according to New South Wales horseman Dennis Day.

    Day is poised to contest the Melton-based feature with Rainbow Jester, which is unbeaten from two starts, including a heat in Bendigo last week.

    Though triumphant in his qualifier, Rainbow Jester broke stride from the pole, resulting in the colt being placed out of the draw by stewards.

    As such, Rainbow Jester will begin from barrier 10 in the $75,000 decider.

    Five runners have drawn the back row due to their ODM status!

    “He’d been good in his trials and his first run before the heat, but for whatever reason, on the night he decided to put in a bad stride,” Day said. “Maybe it’s because it was his first time under light etc, but you never know.

    “Being out of the draw makes it tough and he will need luck from there.”

    With Rainbow Jester a $1.70 TAB Fixed Odds favourite, fellow heat winner, Enchauffour, is the only other runner under double figures at $9.

    Prepared by leading trainer Anton Golino, Enchauffour will begin from barrier seven.

    “He’s made a good start to his career and hopefully he can keep the momentum going,” Day said. “Fitness wise, he will improve for the run, but most of the others will too.

    “Enchauffour is the one to beat, while Jarrod’s (Alchin) one, Aldebaran Zane, will be right in it from barrier four.”
