SUNDAY’S $30,000 Corowa Cup is the highlight of the weekend’s Southern District racing action.
The eight-race TAB meeting has attracted 155 nominations including 22 for the 1600-metre feature.
Border trainers figure prominently with Brian Cox, Brett Cavanough, Kevin Hanley, Sylvia Thompson and Ray Steer all among the entries.
Cox-trained Full Hand could be on the quick back-up after contesting last Sunday’s Wangaratta Cup alongside Cavanough-trained Price Of Glory.
WAGGA Harness Racing Club will hold its Carnival of Cups meeting on Saturday night.
The $15,000 Wagga Pacers Cup is the main race with the Wagga Derby and Wagga Oaks the other features on the nine race card.
The Bernie Kelly-trained Macca Kelly is the only pacer backing-up after taking out the Albury Pacers Cup last Saturday.
The smart five-year-old pacer looks to have a stranglehold on the $1000 bonus on offer for the highest point scorer over the Albury, Wagga and Young cups.
The Young Cup will be held next Saturday night.
The Wagga feature has only attracted a small field of seven but is full of quality runners including Nowitzki, Teo Enteo and Ardle McArdle.
The Daniel Jack-trained Nowitzki looks set to start a short-priced favourite.
THE Wangaratta Harness Racing Club will also stage its annual meeting on Sunday.
The highlight of the twilight meeting is the Pacing Cup (2210 metres).
Glenn Douglas, Greg Sugars, Daryl Douglas, Chris Alford and Jodi Quinlan all have drives in the $12,275 feature.
The Darren Bradley-trained Our Mels Dream looks the testing material.
