Young driver Lleyton Green.

Having recently surpassed half-a-century of winners in his succinct career, junior driver Lleyton Green is in demand. 

The 17year-old reinsman will drive in seven of the nine races at Penrith tonight. 

All of his engagements are for training partners Dean and Kerry McDowell who Green has been working with as a stablehand since 2018. 

In that time Green began driving in the 2019/20 and from 523 drives has accumulated 52 winners, most of them this season. 

Green has almost doubled the amount of winners he drove last season this term, guiding 34 winners since January this year. 

Just last August Green drove his first metropolitan winner at Menangle and on the same night ended up driving a double. 

He also has drives engaged at Menangle this Saturday night including in the Group 3 Kevin Robinson Memorial where he will team up with in form trainer Jason Grimson and his pacer Rays Choice.

The iForm team have put together their best bets for Penrith tonight:

Penrith best bet

Race 6: My Buzz Lightning (9)

Race 4: Sadhana (3)

Looks the leader and can give a real sight from there.
