Tight competition for Gold Cup

CAMPDRAFT: It will be no easy competition on Sunday in the final of the Warwick Gold Cup campdraft final.

Jackie Knudsen's round two run of 90.5 this morning was enough to see her qualify for the finals with an average score of 177.

The top scorer after the round two run, Knudsen and her horse Talk About Design now sit in fifth place behind a tied leaderboard.

Setting the pace at the top were Steve Comiskey, Trent Challacombe, Ken Knudsen and Kerry Turner, who each have an aggregate of 177.5

With scores closely contested, the top 33 riders move into Sunday's competition with a lot to prove.

On 174, Mat Holz will be hoping he has what it takes to fight back in the draft.

While all the attention will be focused on the Gold Cup tomorrow, the Canning Downs campdraft final is on today.

Will Durkin will lead the 29 riders, with an overall score of 183 from the first two rounds.

With little separating the top riders, there will be no shortage of challenging action in the arena.
