Last week’s Winter Series action at Mildura saw Harry Coffey in fine form, ending the day with two winners.

Coffey steered the Stuart Webb-trained Wolf Eyes to victory over 1005m, before winning aboard the Shane Fliedner trained Comeback over 2000m.

It was a famous maiden victory for Comeback. In 14 races, the big bay gelding had finished second 10 times.

He hit the line well at Mildura and another win won’t be too far away.

It has been a good year at Mildura for Coffey.

He finished second in the Jockey’s Premiership behind Melbourne Cup winning jockey, Michelle Payne.

Patrick Payne took the honours in the Trainer’s Premiership, ahead of Darren Weir and Austy Coffey in third.

While the focus will be on Swan Hill’s racetrack today, one local in particular will look to have an impact as Michelle Hagley has continued her stunning return to racing.

The popular jockey begins riding track work every morning at the Swan Hill Racecourse before many get out of bed.

Hagley rode a couple of placegetters at Mildura last week, and was booked into ride at Wagga on Friday, but the meeting was postponed due to the condition of the track.

The hard jockey is certainly worth following. From her last 20 rides, Hagley has tasted victory five times.

And Harry isn’t the only Coffey on fire, the Austy Coffey-trained Solar Bravo paid $30 when it scored over a mile at Echuca in its last start.

It was the fourth win for the five-year-old gelding, who has now amassed over $55000 in his career.

Under the guiding hand of Jacob Rule, Solar Bravo settled well back in the field, before unleashing a perfectly timed sustained sprint to win by a nose on the line.

Solar Bravo is entered in the seventh race in Swan Hill today with Harry Coffey on board.
