The four-year-olds came to the fore on Mildura Pacing Cup heats night with Silent Major and Mach Dan succeeding to roll into Saturday’s final on winning notes.

Silent Major’s toughness held him in good stead in the first heat as he outboxed his rivals in a riveting battle, and then Mach Dan reaffirmed his Cup favoritism with a convincing six-metre win in the second.

They will be joined in Saturday’s $60,000 final by Like A Wildfire, Egodan, Major Meister and Assasinator, who finished second to fifth in the first heat, as well as second heat qualifiers Sonny Weaver, Somewhere Secret, Malcolms Rhythm and Bulletproof Boy.
