Steven Kemp is hoping for a bit of luck to kick off what could be a massive weekend.
Kemp has five greyhounds engaged on Wagga's 11-race card on Friday night.
While he's far from brimming with confidence, he expects they can be more than competitive.
"Dexter Fakester is probably one of the better chances while Multi Star in race 10 is probably a place chance," Kemp said.
"He can't win as Jackie Roy's (Changer's Chance) is a class above the rest as far as I'm concerned and he is doing it on form."
However Kemp hopes a rare inside alley can help Multi Star out.
He will start from box three and it is expected to suit in a heat of the Ladbrokes Cash Out 1-2 Wins Series (400m).
"He's only drawn inside four inside four box once in his last 10 starts and he won that race so he's definitely drawn a lot better than in his previous runs," Kemp said.
"There is room there for improvement."
Dexter Fakester, Jed Bale and Thomeli Girl all line up in separate heats of the Ladbrokes Cash In Maiden Series (320m).
Dexter Fakester has been knocking on the door with two placings in his last two starts.
"On form his times ain't there but in his last two where he's run third and second he's had to work very hard to get to that position," Kemp said.
"Back at his home track if he can get a little bit of room early he can run a bit.
"If he gets everything his own way he should be there at the end."
Kemp also has veteran Tiggerlong Boo on the comeback from injury.
An Achilles problem has restricted to one run in the last seven months but Kemp is hopeful there is still some spark in the 129-start veteran.
"I put him out for nine weeks and when I trialled him he nearly went the best of the day," he said.
"It's a hard race and for him at his best I still don't think he could win that race.
"He's going around to get a bit of running in his legs."
Kemp is also readying himself for a chance to play in the Group Nine grand final.
He played on the wing during Southcity's extra-time win over Gundagai to seal the grand final berth but isn't guaranteed to find himself at Equex Centre on Sunday.
It was just his second game in the top grade this season after replacing the injured Harry Lucas on the side.
Lucas needs to get through a fitness test on Saturday to guarantee his place with the 26-year-old more than willing to step up to the mark if required.
"I'd take it with opens arms if it comes but they are going to give Harry every chance to play," Kemp said.
"That understandable and if he's not right I'll lace up the boots."
After spending two years in Sydney Kemp wasn't going to play this season after returning to Wagga before the temptation got too much.
He would love to take on his former club in Tumut in the decider.
