"There is already a number of different groups booked in for marquees, and alongside our sponsors' day, the pre-bookings are quite strong," Hetherton said.
"The nominations are healthy which should ensure big fields.
"There will be live music and drink promotions.
"We had a good crowd at our most recent meeting on Caulfield Guineas day and hopefully with some favourable weather we can get another good turnout."
The track will be closed for six weeks after Saturday's meeting to undergo drainage works.
Gates open at 11.30 am.
