Race 23: Kevin Burn Memorial, Michael Wilson and Brown Family @ Gunns Plains

This Sunday the PCCCT heads to Gunns Plains for the Kevin Burn Memorial, Michael Wilson and Brown Family 11km handicap.

Runners will be pleased that this year the circuit course can be used again following the rebuilding of Marshalls Bridge. There is some undulation on the western side of the river but no real hills meaning that some good times should be recorded.

This is the last event before the Wynyard-Burnie Feature Race, Very keen racing is ensured as members will be fine-tuning for the following week with the knowledge that the winner will not be rehandicapped until after that big event.

A runner who will be well suited to the distance is Isaac Troughton. He has been showing good form lately and will love these conditions. He will be challenged by John Saltmarsh who is running consistently and showing promise.

Backmarkers Bryan Tuit and Brad Taylor will be hard to hold out. If a middle-marker is to win it could be any of Chris Purton, Ricky Cross or Lyn Saint-John, while the best of the front-markers looks to be David Wright.
