Cup Week Rankings - 26 October
After his fourth in the Ashburton Flying Stakes Laver is now a real chance of making the IRT New Zealand Cup at Addington on Tuesday, November 9.
The four-year-old son of Art Major has climbed five places to 12th in the latest IRT New Zealand Cup rankings, after finishing behind Self Assured, Classie Brigade and Pembrook Playboy at Ashburton on Monday.
The top 15 make the field and while Laver is an under-rated type he has won six from 42 and was third behind South Coast Arden and Bad To The Bone in the 4YO Emerald at the Harness Jewels in June.
He is trained by the father-son combo of Geoff and James Dunn.
The rest of the rankings remain relatively static, while in the rankings for the Renwick Farms Dominon Trot, Muscle Mountain moves up two places from fifth to third following his impressive win in the Group Three Ashburton Sprint on Monday.
Southerner Andy Hall also climbs two places to 13th following his win at Ashburton in Race 10, the DBC "The Farmers Choice” Handicap trot.
