The trotters take centre stage at Hippodrome 3R Sunday afternoon with four return winners in the eighth race feature.

Yet, the 5-2 morning line favourite is not a return winner. That honouree is Commissioner Daley, who starts from post five for co-owner, trainer and driver Guy Gagnon.

Returning to 3R from Rideau Carleton, Commissioner Daley is having a superb season. The six-year-old gelded son of Conway Hall already sports seven wins, the fastest a 1:57 triumph at Rideau. Two starts back he was able to lead from start to finish in 1:58.2.

Commissioner Daley (#6) holds off Caroluzzo in prior win at Hippodrome 3R.

His main competition will come from Jamigo in post three for driver Daniel LaFlamme. Returning from a long stint in the U.S., Jamigo was on a roll at 3R winning three of four starts for owner/trainer Manon Lamothe of Terrebonne before leaving Quebec. In his last start in the U.S. at Pocono, Jamigo was able to post a nose victory in 1:57.2, his fastest winning time this year.

Four Starz Speed is a major threat whenever he races. The veteran of the field at age 12, he still can show his heels to his younger rivals. Hailing from the Kevin Maguire Stable, Four Starz Speed starts from post four with Maguire driving. Last week he was second in the Invitational and three starts back he was a winner in 1:59.

Both Tuscans Memory (post six) and KFB Amigo Cool (post eight) are return winners moving up in class to take on the best trotters at 3R.

Rounding out the nine-horse field are Artemis Duharas (post one), R Rkadbra (post two), Dance Hall George (post seven) and Federal Strike (post nine).
