Yole aiming for century mark

Trainer Ben Yole is closing in on 100 wins for the season after the stable notched another winning treble at Hobart on Sunday night.

Yole has been Tasmania's premiership winning trainer for the last two seasons, picking up over 100 winners on both occasions, and he is bang on course to do the same again.

 No Apachemee, driven by Mark Yole, kicked punters off on a winning note in the opening race on the card, with an impressive 17.3-metre win.

"No Apachmee looked a little better than his rivals on paper over a mile and when Mark placed him perfectly in the one-out, one -back position I was feeling fairly confident," said Ben.

"I could see he was travelling well and when Mark let him go at the 500-metre mark he put them away quickly and won in convincing fashion."

Elsewhere, He's Tight Lipped proved too strong for stablemate Pushkin with the odds-on favourite Little Bit Of Big filling third spot.

"He's Tight Lipped shocked me a little, but he drew well in three and when he took the sit in behind the early leader I thought we may run a place," said the trainer.

"When Rohan (Hadley) went for him off the back he really responded and dashed clear, only the stablemate Pushkin took any ground off him in the home straight so I was very pleased with his effort."

And finally, Aunty Rita rounded out the night for Ben in the Crown Lager Pace making it two wins in Hobart in as many weeks.

"Aunty Rita is a tough mare, she was three wide form the 1200-metre pole before coming away to fight out the finish with Delightful Junie at the 600-metre mark, she goes well for Mark and given the way she won, another win might not be too far away," he added.
