LAST INTER CITY PACE: Paul Sapio drives Megs Ferrari to victory in the final of the 2014 Inter City Pace.

The Kerry Ann Turner-trained four-year-old picked up gate No. 1 for the 2422-metre journey following last night’s barrier draw at the Commercial Hotel at Morpeth.

Heza Swinger, which took out the fourth heat at Maitland on Sunday, was fortunate to score the inside ­running after being the fifth and final of the C2 class to draw a barrier on the front row.

Fellow C2 horses Lavra Bhutan (three), Better Than Max (two), fastest qualifier All Eyes On Us (four) and second heat winner Inception (five) had already selected barriers before Heza Swinger, but luck fell the way of the bay gelding.

This result will more than likely see Menangle driver Robert Morris steer Heza Swinger in the $35,000 group 3 feature over Mister Jay Cee.

Morris also drove Mister Jay Cee to victory in the heats, but the four-year-old bay gelding drew barrier 11, the widest possible start on the ­second row.

Joining Mister Jay Cee on the back row will be the other C4 class horses in Tella (eight), I’m Jay Tee (nine) and defending champion Megs Ferrari (10).

Barrier seven, the inside of the ­second row, was allocated to the Polly Downing-trained Ball Boy andwill be left vacant if the eight-­year-old bay gelding doesn’t get a run.

Rounding out the front row, the widest in barrier six, will be fifth heat winner Strathlachlan Andy.

It wasn’t the ideal draw for Bobs Farm driver Matthew Harding.

“That’s racing and we will have to ride our luck,” he said last night.

“Hopefully there is some early speed and we can come home over the top.”

Louth Park driver Guy Chapple will be on board the Charles Camilleri-trained Lavra Bhutan from barrier three and he said it would be full speed ahead from the word go.

“We won’t be going back,” Chapple said.

Sawyers Gully driver Jason Proctor will be in charge of Better Than Max from barrier two.

“It was the perfect draw,” Proctor said.

“We don’t have to draw position we just have to sit there and see what ­happens.”

Last night’s barrier draw was ­overseen by Harness Racing NSW steward Todd Clarke.

The 52nd Inter City Pace final is set for 9.15pm.

First race at Maitland Showground on Saturday will jump at 6.15pm.
