    ENJOYING a purple patch with his team, prominent horseman David Miles hopes the trend can continue when he heads to Bendigo on Saturday night.

    Miles has six runners at the meeting with each a solid chance of winning.

    One problem, however, three of his starters are in the same race!

    While Louis Sedgwick shapes as the leading prospect among the trio, the draw has “evened them out” according to Miles.

    Winner of his last two starts – having finished second at his three previous outings – Louis Sedgwick will begin from the middle of the back row.

    Louis Sedgwick’s stablemates Six Elements and Jamieson Steele will come from barriers one and four.

    “Louis Sedgwick is flying at the moment and is going to be hard to beat again,” Miles said. “He hasn’t drawn the best, and as far as my three are concerned, that has evened them out.

    “Six Elements is going better than her form looks on paper, and the last time she drew the pole, which was back in February, she won.

    “If the speed is on and she can get she right trip she is capable of causing a bit of an upset.”

    Earlier on the card Miles will be represented by Emerald Stride, which is among the favourites despite drawing gate five.

    Runner-up at her last two starts, the trotter overcame a 10-metre handicap to score in Shepparton three outings ago.

    “She is racing really well and has her chance to get another win on the board,” Miles said.

    Miles also has Priddy Artful and Izzy Jolie set to clash later in the evening.

    Enjoying no luck at when unplaced at her latest start, Priddy Artful boasts three wins and a third from her four previous outings.

    “Priddy Artful just couldn’t get into the race in Shepparton,” Miles said. “I was happy enough with the way she went, she just didn’t have any luck.

    “Izzy Jolie has been consistent and just needs an ounce of luck to get another win on the board.”

    Away from his team, Mile also has an ‘outside’ drive behind Terrorleen for trainer Trevor Monk.

    “Trevor has him doing really well and he’s certainly ready to win,” Miles said. “Hopefully he can get a good trip from barrier two and finish strongly.”
