Ashes Test Series resumes, but what time will be run in Ballarat's Lightning Mile tonight?

THE Boxing Day Test at the MCG is the big ticket item in sport today.

Australia might have the Ashes secure after three straight wins, but the build up to this match has been nothing less than sensational with England in disarray.

Who will line up for England?

It could have as many as three changes, while Australia looks certain to be unchanged again.

Some 90,000-plus fans are expected to pack out the MCG.


ON home front, the Ballarat and District Trotting Club’s group 3 $30,000 Laser Electrical Lightning Mile at Bray Raceway tonight takes centre stage.

The feature event at what is traditionally Ballarat’s second biggest harness racing meeting of the year also carries two $10,000 speed bonuss for track and state 1609m records.

What time will they run?
