The racing continues on Thursday evening with an eight-race card of trotting from Åby.
Our expert Mark Underhill has cast his eye over the action and picked out who to look out for in Sweden…
He’s the one to look out for at Åby! The experienced driver is the man in form with four wins from his last seven races and has three drives to look forward to with Foreign Rain (17:30), Indra’s Secret (19:00) and J.H.Respons (19:22).
He trained all four of his recent winners himself and the locally based trainer has sent out over 4,000 career winners since taking out a training licence in 1993.
He drove 120 winners last year and has got off to a flying start with his driving in 2020 with 23 wins from his first 92 drives to show an impressive 25% strike rate.
Indra’s Secret is likely to provide Bergh with a decent chance of a winner in the most valuable race on the card at 19:00. The six-year-old has won three of her last six starts and justified favouritism when driven by Bergh at Bergsåker earlier in the month on her most recent outing.
Goop is Sweden’s most successful driver ever with over 7,000 career wins. He should provide firm competition to Bergh with five drives to look forward to on Thursday.
Encore Un Sisu, another 13-time winner, also likely to be a very popular selection and could offer a good contest in the 19:00. She has won her last four starts, including a win over a shorter trip here at the start of the month.
Goop has other good chances of adding to his impressive career wins tally on the card, notably with German-bred FromHeaven Idzarda in the 19:44. The unexposed four-year-old makes his Swedish debut here looking to build upon a win at Wolvega in the Netherlands on his second career start which he then followed up with a win in Germany at Gelsenkirchen last time.
Robert Bergh drives: Foreign Rain (17:30), Indra’s Secret (19:00), J.H.Respons (19:22)
Björn Goop drives: Embakasi Sun (17:30), Call The King (18:38), Encore Un Sisu (19:00), Twigs Ceasar (19:22), FromHeaven Idzarda (19:44).
