Wagga trainer Gary Colvin will take two horses to Corowa on Friday with the view of breaking their maiden status.
Bravado Lass and Dont Call Me Vince have been knocking on the door and will be on the back up at Corowa on Friday.
“I don’t usually back my horses up but they both pulled up well so I thought we’d give it a go,” Colvin said.
“Both are going there with pretty good chances.”
Dont Call Me Vince will run in the opening race, the Statesman Motor Inn Maiden Handicap (900m), where she has drawn the inside barrier for Bryan Murphy.
The five-year-old mare ran third at Gundagai last Sunday.
“If she runs up to her last start then she would be right in it,” he said.
Bravado Lass contests the second race, the Corowa Fire Protection Maiden Plate (1200m).
She has eight minor placings to her name from 11 starts and Colvin fears she may again have to settle for being bridesmaid when she goes up against the Matthew Dale-trained Zafina.
“I liked Bravado Lass’ chances then I saw Matty Dale’s in it. It looks pretty hard to beat,” Colvin said.
Murphy also takes the ride on Bravado Lass, who has run second at her past two starts.
