Leading Suits You Gotta Have Faith

Noted frontrunner You Gotta Have Faith excelled in the role of pacemaker and overcame the disadvantage of casting a shoe in running when he held on to win the 2130m Get The Best Service Only At DTS Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Driven by Maddison Brown for Waroona trainer Bob Mellsop, You Gotta Have Faith, the $3 favourite, made the most of the coveted No. 1 barrier by setting the pace and holding on to win by a neck from Mister Bushido, who trailed the pacemaker throughout.

The Justin Prentice-trained Pick My Pocket showed that she will pay to follow by fighting on grimly to be a close third after working hard in the breeze, while Crocodile Kid showed a welcome return to form by charging home out wide to finish fourth.
