Goulburn horseman Brad Hewitt has power in numbers in tonight’s $100,000 Group 1 Regional Championships Metropolitan Final at Menangle. 

The 31-year-old has a three-pronged attack in the feature including the race favourite Arma Renegade. 

The mare won her qualifier in dominant fashion and will be steered by Luke McCarthy. 

Hewitt has elected to drive up-and-coming pacer Hez Dusty, a veteran of only 14 starts. 

Hez Dusty has finished runner up in his last two assignments and has drawn barrier two. 

Hewitt’s other charge is Rockin With Elvis who will be driven by his father David Hewitt. 

It was in last year’s State Final that Hewitt trained his first Group 1 winner when Send It was successful.

The iForm best bets for tonight:

Menangle best bet 

Race 9: Kyvalley Chief  (7)

Can make it back to back victories following a tidy display in last week’s stand.

Menangle next best 

Race 3: Fouroeight (10)

Sparkling splits giving them start first up for the new yard suggests he will keep favourite followers very honest.

Play the exotics
