Glen Innes officials expect 2000 racegoers for Cup meeting.

Glen Innes Jockey Club expects a crowd of close to 2000 for Saturday’s annual Cup Day meeting.

Volunteers have spent months working towards the races and the track is looking picture perfect for the big event.

Such was the depth of acceptances, a scheduled six-race program is now seven races after the 1200m Benchmark 55 was split into two races.

The Cup is the sixth event on the card, being run at 4.11pm, with the first to jump at 1.45pm.

Leader sports reporter Gregor Mactaggart has run his eye over the program in a bid to find a winner.


Race 1: Inafernanika, In Bengal, Half Penny; Race 2: Tan Tat Nova, Shrewd ‘N’ Drac, Impressive One; Race 3: Duchilli, Alpine Dragon, Racecraft; Race 4: Medal Afrique, Azzalin, Moonlight Spy; Race 5: Victory Lass, Slippery Eel, Smart Option; Race 6: St Luke, Hula Girl, Arawak; Race 7: Talented MissAustralia Art, My Dubleo Boy.  Best bet: Tan Tat Nova.
