The King vs The Kid

By Dave Di Somma - Harness News Desk

A battle is looming between The Kid and the King at Gloucester Park in Perth.

Both trained by the powerful Greg and Skye Bond stable, the two ex Kiwis, Kilowatt Kid and Kingslayer, will clash in tomorrow morning’s Perth Plasterboard Centre Handicap, a stand over 2503 metres.

Kilowatt Kid won five of 25 for Southland trainer Alister Black before heading to Western Australia where he’s raced four times for three wins and a second. He’ll be driven by top reinsman Ryan Warwick.

Stablemate Kingslayer looms as his biggest threat, having won 13 from 29, including six wins from a stand in Western Australia. The six-year-old will start off the backmark (30 metres) for driver Daniel Egerton-Green.

Before heading across the Tasman Kingslayer won four from 15 for Canterbury-based trainers Greg and Nina Hope.

Race 9 is set to go at 1.10 am NZT.
