John Little and Liz Newberry with Springvale Alysa, winner of the second heat of the Ivor Dowdell Memorial.

The Fennell-trained Banjo Lass, who last won at Tara Raceway in early January, found winning form again when leading all the way in the first heat, beating Wilson’s Bushman’s Mate by 3½ lengths in 23.14 seconds.

And Little’s Springvale Alysa also led all the way in the second heat to defeat Fennell’s Banjo Bad Boy – this year’s Summer Classic winner – by 1½ lengths in 23.17 seconds.

Little also has Yappy Allen in the final and Wilson will also be represented by Bushman’s Bro – both of his “Bushmen” running good races – while the other finalists are Dyna Naitch (David Peckham) and Cryer’s Jed (Tom Cryer).
