With less than a month left in the harness racing season, Jake Stockton’s mare is level with Padrisimo on 16 points.

She jumped from a share of third to equal first with a win at Wagga last time out.

She also has an advantage over the former pacer of Rod Woodhouse, who has since moved to Sydney.

Despite a spelling Tiwanaku in second there are plenty of other runners who can pick up valueable points.

Serene Major and Navajo Rocky are both on 13 while Jessica Amber has to contend with barrier six on Tuesday night.

She is one of two Stockton runners in the Supermix Concrete Pace (1755m) with last start winner Our Classical Art drawn in seven.

However Jessica Amber is coming off an impressive second in the Group Three NSW Breeders Challenge Regional Final at Bathurst.
