CONNECTIONS of Maori Law are hoping – should the occasion arise – he receives the perfect draw in the Inter Dominion Final.
While every trainer, driver and owner wants the same in the December 11 showdown at Club Menangle, the situation is slightly different for the Victorian trotter.
Basically, by then Maori Law will be overdue for good luck with barriers.
As it stands luck has avoided Maori Law in the time honoured series, with the son of Lawman beginning from 11 during the opening round.
To the delight of co-trainers Richard and Emmett Brosnan, Maori Law performed admirably to finish fifth.
Moving to Bathurst for tomorrow night’s second heats, Maori Law will come from 12 – the outside of the second row – over 1730 metres.
“We are pleased with his run on night one, and more importantly, how well he has come through the run,” Emmett said.
“He had no luck with the draw for the first round and now he’s copped a shocking draw again.
“It’s not going to be easy from the back line over the sprint, so we’ll just have to hope he can get the right run on the night.
“Hopefully he can earn enough points to make his way into the Final and maybe then get some luck with the draw.”
