Sybille Tinter was quite lyrical since her Okira Bo won the Breeders Course elimination at Solvalla with Björn Goop in the sulky.
– This is the biggest thing I have been through and I have never been in such a big final before, said Tinter who is one of the rising stars in Swedish trotting.
Now she got the next positive kick, in the draw for the Breeders Course final, her Okira Bo - again together with Björn Goop - got the perfect inner track on Sunday.
We also note that Alessandro Gocciadoro, who has two horses in the final, chooses to drive Cronos Degli Dei while he transfers Cash Maker to Örjan Kihlström.
Adrian Kolgjini has also qualified two horses and lets dad Lutfi take care of Aquarius Face.
A debutant in the big scene is the young Dane Victor Rosleff. It is Jerry Riordan who set up Rosleff on Lillianne's Love, which he also qualified for.
Rosleff started his career with Axel Jacobsen at Charlottenlund, has worked for Peter Untersteiner in Sweden but now drives full time. And it is very fitting that Victor gets to run his first big final at Solvalla during the Elitloppsweekend. Victor's grandfather was the legendary Danish trainer Walter Kaiser Hansen who was second in the Elitloppet in 1980 with My Nevele - barely beaten by Ideal du Gazeau.
