Driver Luke McCarthy will partner many of the main fancies in round two of the TAB Inter Dominion series at Bathurst on Wednesday night.

The barrier draws for the second round of TAB Inter Dominion Pacing and Trotting Championships heats have been released. 

Taking place at Bathurst on Wednesday night, all heats will be over the sprint trip of 1730m and the sprint lane will be in operation.

Champion reinsman Luke McCarthy won two heats in the first round of Inter Dominion qualifiers and once again holds the key to most of the heats, driving the main fancies.

McCarthy’s first Inter Dominion drive on the night is on TAB Fixed Odds favourite Expensive Ego in race five.

In the following pacing heat, the Belinda McCarthy-trained Alta Orlando is the public elect with reinsman Jack Callaghan engaged while McCarthy’s drive Spirit Of St Louis is the second pick.

McCarthy will then jump in the sulky to drive the Grand Final favourite King Of Swing in race seven.

There has also been support for the ‘Team McCarthy’ trotter Humble Ladd in race eight who opened at $6.50 with TAB Fixed Odds and firmed into $4.80 at one stage.

Victorian trotter Pink Galahs has remained favourite for that qualifier while Majestic Man is the fancy in the following heat for the square-gaiters.
