If the Country Championships Preview comes down to fitness, expect Dan Roy to be in there slugging it out for victory.
The Tamworth galloper appears to have an edge in that department to many of Friday’s rivals, who tackle the race first or second up.
Dan Roy is lining up for his sixth run this preparation in the 1300m feature and has been a model of consistency for trainer Leon Davies.
Wyong trainer Kim Waugh is also having a shot at the race with Recife Beach, part-owned by her husband, former Test cricketer Mark.
The Preview is at 5.45pm, with the first at 1.20pm.
