Leading trainer Greg Bond admits he has been forced to reassess his opinion of former New Zealand pacer Kamwood Laughter.
Bond was initially reluctant to take on the four-year-old filly but has been pleasantly surprised by her recent form.
Kamwood Laughter raced 15 times in New Zealand for three wins and five placings but has taken her performances to another level since arriving in WA earlier in January.
In eight appearances she hasn't missed the money with five wins and three placings including four in a line at Pinjarra.
Kamwood Laughter will have her final hit out before Friday week's $35,000 WASBA Pace for fillies and mares over 1700m in the Bosch Pace (2100m) at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
"I wasn't that keen on her but my agent was pretty insistent and I'm glad I followed his advice," said Bond.
"She is six or seven lengths better than I thought.
"She is a wonderful little mare and as good as we probably have had.
"As a four-year-old she has more upside and I'm expecting her win a lot more metropolitan races.
"On Friday she has drawn a little wide but on ability she should have the field covered.
"I would like to think with no bad luck she will be winning the race."
Anvil Attack resumes after a short break and has drawn pole position in the Metabo Handicap Pace (2503m).
Bond expects a forward display first-up.
"It's probably a winnable race for the horse," said Bond.
"He is working well.
"He is not laden with a huge amount of ability but he definitely has one of these races in him.
"I rate him a definite each way chance."
Borat sat outside the leader at the bell before running on to be placed second to Adda Paternal Suit at Pinjarra on April 2.
The five-year-old improved after tailing off to finish a distant last behind Ohokas Bondy in the West Australian Triple Crown Final at his previous start.
The five-year-old gelding, to be driven by Colin Brown, will step from barrier 10 in the Sidchrome Pace (2100m).
"This is another of those races not laden with class horses and I think he is as good as any in the race," Bond said.
The Greg and Skye Bond team will complete Friday commitments with Dundee Three who commences from 10m in the Milwaukee Conditioned Handicap (2503m).
Bond believes the gelding is on the cusp of ending a losing sequence of six.
"He is racing really well but just without luck," said Bond.
"He also is a good stand horse and I rate him a definite each way chance."
