Champion reinswoman Natalie Rasmussen is tipped to drive Spankem over stablemate Cruz Bromac in Saturday night’s Inter Dominion Pacing Final.
After drawing barrier five, the New Zealander Spankem is firm favourite, at $2.50, for the final. Cruz Bromac didn’t fare so well, having to come from nine on the second row, and is $5.50.
Both horses have performed brilliantly during qualifying, leaving Rasmussen with a tough decision. The champion driver’s partner Mark Purdon, will drive the horse Rasmussen rejects.
For what it’s worth Spankem looks nigh on unbeatable in the InterDom final … massive threat though Pats Delight .. Crans celebrations will be worth waiting for..Pats 3 heat runs have been ominous

Trotting sensation Tornado Valley is the $1.60 favourite for the Trotters final.
Tornado Valley completed a clean sweep of its heats and has an imposing record of 16 wins from 18 starts. Impressive heat winner Speeding Spur is second favourite at $3.20.
