    WAYWARD trotter Monty Monte is expected to complete a hat-trick when he returns to Club Menangle tomorrow.

    Showing plenty of potential during his debut with a strong fourth after racing in the ‘death seat’, Monty Monte let connections down during his next two outings.

    Out of position at the start, the KerryAnn Morris-trained son of Majestic Son broke on both occasions, resulting in 134 and 98 metre defeats and stewards sending the colt back to the trials.

    Since his ‘walk of shame’, however, Monty Monte has produced his best with a pair of wins around the world class circuit.

    “He has a ton of ability,” Morris’ husband-reinsman, Robbie said. “There is not doubt he has a great motor, it’s just the gearbox isn’t in sync.

    “He’s just very green and learning as he goes along, but once the penny drops, he will be a very nice trotter.”

    To be driven by Robbie, Monty Monte will contest the opening event on the card – a New South Wales Foundation Series heat over 1609 metres.

    Due to his Out of the Draw in a Mobile status Monty Monte will begin from barrier eight.

    Despite his questionable manners and starting position the young squaregaiter is a $1.80 favourite.

    Triumphant at his first three starts before a fifth at Menangle three weeks ago, Rainbow Jester is considered the biggest threat from gate seven.

    Trained by astute horseman Dennis Day, Rainbow Jester’s victories include the $75,000 Nutrien Classic in Melton on April 20.

    Morris will also be represented by Second To Nun, which is on the third line of betting from barrier four.
