Forever Perfect aiming for Clifford Park final victory

IMPRESSIVE heat winner Forever Perfect shapes as the horse to beat when she chases a feature final win at Clifford Park on Sunday.

Forever Perfect will chase her third win from her four latest outings when she lines up on the front row of the 2012 Darling Downs Breeders G.W. McClymont Memorial Mares Final (1660m).

The four-year-old staked a strong final claim with an all-the-way victory for trainer-driver Graham Dwyer in last week's opening Clifford Park heat.

The day's second heat was won by Arlege Bay who led throughout to down the solid-finishing Romijn by a metre in a slowly run race.

Arlege Bay has drawn inside Forever Perfect in Sunday's decider where she will come from gate two for Trevor Lambourn.

Sunday's eight-race card also features The Darling Downs Harness Racing Club Members R5 Or Better Pace (1660m) where BG Three will be looking to atone for his close second off 30 metres in last Sunday's Discretionary Handicap (2060m).

*  Former Oakey trainer Bart Cockburn will be a scratching from this week's Toowoomba meeting after driving a winning double on last Sunday's card.

Cockburn is in Sydney with his talented trotter Supper Waltz Wilson who lines up in race five at Menangle tomorrow night.

If the gelding performs well at his Sydney debut, Cockburn will take aim at a $200,00 trotters' feature event at Menagle in February.

"He got through the trip down on Wednesday 100 per cent and he's in good shape for tomorrow night," Cockburn said today.

"He comes off a 10-metre handicap which is better than some of his marks at home and hopefully he can perform at this best."
