Interdom not a one-act affair, as Warwick prepares to race

HARNESS RACING: The Inter- dominion, one of Australia's oldest and most prestigious competitions, concludes tonight with the grand final at Gloucester Park. The concept of heats and a grand final makes for thrilling action over a period, and gives country tracks a chance to host some of the best horses in the world.

Lazarus, which has been crunched in betting, is the obvious pick from gate two.

There should be plenty of early speed as horses battle for the lead, and champion Lennytheshark isn't scared to make a mid-race move.

Chicago Bull could be the one flashing home late, particularly if Lazarus is forced to work for the front.

On the local front, accept- ances have been strong for the Warwick Pacing Cup meeting, which has been expanded to seven races.

To give you an idea of the depth of horses coming to Allman Park, Clintal Do won a $50,000 Qbred Triad race at Albion Park in May.

Trainers are bringing horses to Warwick to win, not just enjoy a break from the usual scenes of Redcliffe and Albion Park.

There's no doubt Lazarus is the best horse in the race, and, from the front line, will be tough to beat.

However I'm banking on speed up front, and Chicago Bull to get one last dash at them.

He can sprint, so I'm hoping that shows tonight.
