Cherry Festival activities continue tonight with a very competitive seven-race program.
Possibly the hardest race of the night to predict with a number of definite chances, the 1720-metre first race is a $6120 contest.
Bathurst trainer Steve Turnbull continues to support the Young Harness Racing Club with five runners engaged for the meeting, the first race his best hope to take home the prize with the resuming Ponte Milvio.
A convincing winner of his last two races, he should be too strong for Shirvanee and Shady Shadow, who was a winner two starts back for the new stable.
Race two should be more open with last start Young winner After The Ball looking the early favourite from Studleigh Kristen, who has been ultra-consistent since resuming with two seconds and a good win.
Think It Through can be a little unreliable but is drawn to lead and was a good winner last week.
In race three, pole marker Karinya Mully has the services of Jason Grimson and should lead from a favourable gate, the Garry Eyre trained pacer has won two races from five starts with two minor placings, the Steve Turnbull trained Montana Shadow looking the main danger.
The Jeff Brown trained Sunshine Hannigan is a last start winner but has an awkward gate; with two wins from five starts certainly comes into calculations.
Racing continues over the 1720 meter journey in race four, a faster class for the C4 and better class pacers.
The locally-trained Village Witch has the right draw and distance to possibly secure a much needed win, again to be driven by Jason Grimson.
The dangers in this race appear to be Lap Dancer for Steve Turnbull and His A Tease, not leaving out the Amanda Turnbull driven Written In Red who could well be the leader.
Race five has special handicap conditions and once again carries total prizemoney of $6,120.
Trainer Troy Fletcher is knocking on the door for a win with Marys Little Rose and although given the visitors draw could be running on over the longer 2100 meter journey.
Depending how the race is run, Bee Ay Hurricane could once again be in the firing line over the concluding stages with the Grenfell trained Percynjack a possible contender at long odds.
Last start Young winner Greenngold has the services of Amanda Turnbull once again and looks far too strong for the opposition in race six, having won two races since resuming.
Dangers, if any, will be Johnnycake, Passaic River and courageous Beau in no particular order.
The final race of the night has a small but competitive field of three year olds, anyone of the six runners having claims.
Draw pacer Adore Ruby will be running on over the concluding stages while Shes Gifted and Big Heart both have reasonable form.
Certainly another great night of harness racing can be assured with free admission, the Lions Club barbecue and bar together with an on course TAB operating.
