Drivers give their take on Forbury Park's final night

Here is how some of the stars of Forbury Park’s last ever meeting tonight rate their best chance of a farewell win, and how some of them will remember the Dunedin track.

Ricky May: “I think Forbury actually has the best racing surface to drive on and I have won a lot of races there. I think my best chance of a winner on the final night will be Cody Banner (R3, No.1).

Blair Orange: “It has been a very good track to me but somehow I managed to get beaten driving Jack Cade (superstar pacer) there.

“That aside it is a track that has helped plenty of drivers like me make a name for themselves and it has been one of our best racing surfaces for a very long time.

“My best chance of a win to say goodbye will be Midnitetraintogeorga (R2, No.4) who doesn’t meet a very strong field.”

Kirk Larsen: “I won my first race as a driver at Forbury Park so I am hoping I can win the last race there.

“That’s on Cast A Shadow (R10, No.2) who won well last start and if he produces that form will would be hard to beat from gate two.

"I also train King Of The North who Tristan (son) will drive but it is not a bad field so he might need some luck.”

Gavin Smith: “One Over All (R9, No.3) will be hard to run down around this track if he gets away, which he normally does.”

Brad Willliamson: “Shard’s Fury (R5, No.2) jumps up in grade but has a good draw and if he leads or trials he can threaten.”

Jonny Cox: “Dashtothebeach (R8, No.3) has produced a couple of nice wins in his last two and I think can make it three in a row.”

Nathan Williamson: “Dem Bones Dem Bones (R6, No.2) is my best drive and he trots throughout he should win.”
