Race 1 - 1:45PM SIDING SPRING CLASS 1 & MAIDEN PLATE (1600 METRES)
Bathurst visitor NEON MOON (best odds currently $7 with bet365) is third-up today and seeing the track for the first time. Last start, the four-year-old daughter of The Factor finished third in a Class 2 Plate over 1400m on a rain affected Wellington track. Her only win to date came on a heavy track, winning her Maiden last preparation, also at Wellington. Fitter for two runs this time in, Mikayla Weir is in charge today and with her early gate speed, maps to settle in the first half dozen. With a trouble-free run here, she looks a genuine winning chance in this field.
Race 6 - 4:50PM COONA BAKERY BENCHMARK 50 HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
Gunnedah galloper FOREIGN BROTHER (best odds currently $5 with Palmerbet) has finished top-four in his past five starts and looks poised to bring up his third win this preparation. Last start, the four-year-old came off a Class 2 win at Merriwa when he finished just behind the placegetters on his home track in a BM58 Hcp over 1400m. He drops back to the 1200m trip here and is reunited with Brooke Stower who has steered him to victory previously. His only start at this this track saw him take home second prize. Placed three times in four previous heavy track starts, he should revel in the going today and in his current form, looks the one to beat here.
