Star driver Kima Frenning has opted to go with Wrappers Delight for Saturday night's Victoria Cup at Tabcorp Park, Melton, but admits it was not an easy decision to make.
The Swedish ace, who arrived in Australia four years ago, also had the option to drive Im The Boss, but after talks with connections of both horses, opted for Wrappers Delight.
"It was a very, very hard decision but I'll be driving Wrappers," she said. "I talked with Aik (trainer David Aiken) and the owners of both horses, and that's the decision we've come up with. He's done so much for me that horse (Im The Boss), but you've got to pick one."
Five-year-old Wrappers Delight heads into the Victoria Cup having taken out last weekend's Group 2 TAB Multiplier Smoken Up Sprint and also won the Empire Stallions Vicbred Super Series and Hygain Breeders Crown finals last season.
Impressive to say the least, but Frenning believes there is even more to come from him and is feeling in a bullish mood ahead of the race and thinks he will go well against some quality rivals.
"He's the up-and-comer," she said. "I'd say there will be improvement (from last weekend). This will be his third run back and the way he raced through the Vicbreds he just kept improving. The earplugs never came off in the Smoken Up Sprint, so he should have a bit left."
