FINAL rankings for the resurrected Trotters’ Inter Dominion have been released with locals dominating the line-up.
Harness Racing Victoria revealed the final list just moments ago, with seven of the top 10 squaregaiters trained within the state.
New Zealand star Speeding Spur remains at the head of affairs, followed by the Andy Gath-trained Tornado Valley.
A revelation since joining Gath’s team, Tornado Valley is unbeaten from three starts this season, including last week’s Lenin Free-For-All at Tabcorp Park Melton.
Subject of some intense social media discussions during the past week, Illawong Armstrong has forced his way into the series.
Outside the cut-off at 33 during the third round rankings, Illawong Armstrong was moved to 23 on the strength of a win and a second behind Tornado Valley as well as several scratchings.
New South Wales hopeful Kowhai Monarch was the biggest overall mover for co-trainers Joe and Mary Rando.
Originally listed at 79, the gelding sits at 20 thanks to three wins and a third from his four starts since the first rankings.
On the other end of the scale, Regal Pepperell was the biggest loser, dropping from 14 to 28 to miss a berth in the Championship.
Final rankings for the Trotters’ Inter Dominion – which is scheduled to begin with heats in Melton on December 1 – can be viewed here.
