    POPULAR couple Joe and Mary Rando are poised to launch a solid attack on Saturday night’s Bulli Trotters’ Cup at Tabcorp Park Menangle.

    The Randos have three runners in the feature, with each considered a reasonable chance of emerging triumphant.

    The duo are no strangers to success in the Group Three having won last season’s edition with Sundons Comet.

    “We won the race last year with Sundons Comet, which disappointingly died of a perforated bowel not long after that,” Joe said.

    “With a bit of luck we can take it out again on Saturday night.”

    Faring best in the draw, veteran squaregaiter Sunset Tour rates as the stable’s best chance according to Joe.

    Racing in solid form the 10-year-old will come from three.

    “Sunset been phenomenal for us,” Joe said. “He is just like old faithful.

    “Amanda (Turnbull) drove him last start and said he never got a crack but felt strong when fifth.

    “On the way he is going and the draw he is the better chance of the three as I know he will step cleanly.”

    Also competing in consistent fashion, Rompers Monarchy will come from eight due to her Outside Of The Draw status.

    “Rompers, if she steps, will be very hard to hold out,” Joe said. “She’s not the best from stand but we couldn’t leave her out of the race either.

    “She was unlucky not to get a run in the mares’ race last week and run quicker when third in her race than the winner of the mares’ event.

    “We’re very happy with her and would say she is the better chance if she steps.”

    Returning from a six-month break, Amandas Spur – which is also ODS – rounds out the Randos’ assault.

    “We took him to Melbourne and he ran a good when fifth after being in the breeze, but he didn’t travel well, so we brought home and put him in a paddock,” Joe explained.

    “He can step alright and should be prominent early.”
