Young Dubbo reinsman Andrew Lincoln gets the chance to record his first winning drive when he partners Buddabray from barrier one in the KL Tough Fuel Supplies Pace (2040m) at Parkes tomorrow night.
Trained by Neil Burrell, Buddabray was runner-up at Parkes and Dubbo recently and conditions suit at Parkes.
Playstation (Jason Gaffney) has similar form with seconds at Parkes and Temora while Karloo Nicky (Kurt Lew) is working up to a win after being close up at her past two outings.
Jack McWilliam-trained Dance With Olive (Mark Hewitt) looks well placed in the Parkes Tyrepower Ray and Norm Miskell Memorial Pace (2040m).
She has returned to racing in great form that includes two wins at Young and a second placing at Bathurst.
Hewitt should have the mare placed well throughout from the pole mark.
Local mare Panicanrun (Bernie Hetherington) has made a bit of a mess out of her former highly consistent form of late but she proved that it was more bad luck than anything else when she ran a very good fourth at Parkes on January 8.
With a bit more luck she will be in this race up to her ears while another local, Brehanna Kate (Keith Thomson), must be given a strong chance after her form this season has improved markedly.
Lexy Lobell (Bruce Newham) scored a very impressive win in fast time at Bathurst last Wednesday night and she is the one to beat in the Ken Harris Memorial (2040m).
Before that she had a couple of runs on the central coast and wasn’t beaten that far.
Suntan Stan (Troy McClintock) must be causing connections frustration as he has been runner-up at four of his past five starts but he should surely break through for a win soon and is one of the hardest to beat here.
Pip (Arthur Clancy) is an interesting runner as he returned to racing after a three-and-a-half year lay-off to win at Newcastle on December 18. He has since been placed second there on January 8.
In a strong race others with sound chances include Shania Blue Chip, Bigin and Rainbow Supreme.
Only a small field will contest the inaugural running of the Western Wool Marketing Australia Day Cup (2430m), the feature race at Parkes.
It is traditional that the Parkes Harness Racing Club participates in the local Australia Day celebrations and despite a glut of racing this week, the progressive club has been able to attract a strong line up.
Alectown stayer, Kenny Cruise (Nathan Townsend) will strip fitter from having one run at Dubbo since resuming from a long spell and he is the class runner in the event.
