REGULAR driver John Scott will be watching from the sidelines when Lettuceventilate attempts to return to winning form at Young on Tuesday night.
Junior driver Ellen Bartley takes the reins on the Hellen Scott-trained pacer as connections look to take advantage of her claim in the $6120 C1 Only Pace, (1720m).
Lettuceventilate is second-up after running fifth first-up from at spell at the recent New Year’s Eve meeting at the Albury Paceway.
“He galloped on the top turn with a lap-and-a-half to go when resuming, which was a bit uncharacteristic,” Scott said.
“He lost a fair bit of ground and got too far back to be a winning chance.
“This horse has been out of form for a fair while but hopefully he can show some improvement tonight after drawing the pole.”
Lettuceventilate is owned by long-time stable supporters Craig English and partner Leanne Melbourne.
The pair also own and operate the Discount Grocery Warehouse in Lavington.
