Barry Lew's Karloo Damajor to clash with Steve and Amanda Turnbull in hunt for back-to-back wins

Karloo Damajor got back to winning ways at his home track on Sunday and Dubbo trainer Barry Lew will be hoping for back-to-back victories when the gelding lines up at Bathurst on Wednesday evening.

The five-year-old had gone seven starts without a win, the longest run of his 25-race career, heading into Sunday’s race at Dubbo but he cruised to a 6.9m win in a mile rate of 1:59:3 in the Stevenson’s Hydraulics Pace (2120m).

IN THE GIG: Mat Rue will again drive Karloo Damajor on Wednesday evening.

On Wednesday, Karloo Damajor will line up from gate five in the Bathurst RSL Club Pace (1730m).

There is some genuine talent in the race with Steve Turnbull’s Sportygal going from gate seven while Amanda Turnbull is expected to start as favourite with Hidden Courage.

The gelding has won five of his past eight starts while he has only missed a place once in the past 11 races.

Bathurst’s eight-race meeting starts at 5.28pm with the Bathurst RSL Club Pace at 6.30pm and the last leaving at 9pm.
