The King swings right into title contention following a dominant win at Bathurst last night.

The challenge had been laid down to the Rock n Roll Hanover entire out of Twist & Twirl with his rivals drawing inside him and declaring they wouldn’t be giving him the lead. He was going to have to be very good to secure victory on Wednesday night, and he surpassed expectations. He delivered an exceptional performance, some say up there with one of his best. Often classified as a front running winner only, King of Swing, proved the doubters wrong showing true grit to sit parked and still storm away to victory

From outside the front gate, he didn’t have it easy initially posted three wide, before settling in the parked position in a blister pace. The eventual time was 1.51. 4.

It was a red letter night for trainer Belinda McCarthy, with her charges securing four heats, three pacing and one trotting

The final night of heats is this Sunday at Newcastle where the challengers will take part in a 2030m events. The King has drawn 5 in the second pacing heat of the night.

Joining him at Newcastle is Kyvalley Chief (Muscle Hill - Love Ya Doosie) who ran second on opening night but had an uncharacteristic gallop at Bathurst on Wednesday. Drawn four he will seeking a top six finish to cement his place in the final.

The Inter Dominion Final will be staged at Menangle on Saturday 11th December.

Next weekend will be a big one with the Kings' little sister back on home shores. Group 1 winner Bettor Twist, Bettor’s Delight – Twist and Twirl, is currently domiciled with Brent Mangos in Auckland. Twist will be set for the Group 3 Northern Breeders on December 10th and the Group 1 Queen of Hearts on December 17th
