Group one-winning trainer Rickie Alchin will return home to Temora in a bid to win the Pacers Cup on Saturday night.
Alchin jumped at the opportunity to return home to Temora when his partner Nikki was invited to be judge of the club's Fashions on the Field competition.
Alchin will bring Little Change for the $15,300 BFB & New Earthmoving Temora Pacers Cup (2386m) and group one winner Regulus will resume from a spell in the TAB Odds & Evens Pace (1635m) earlier in the card.
Alchin's partner Nikki won the Fashions on the Field on New Zealand Cup day, the same day he enjoyed group one success with top trotter Tough Monarch.
When she was invited to judge Temora's Fashions on the Field, Alchin decided it was the perfect opportunity to come along for the ride.
"I haven't been home for a while," Alchin said.
"It will be good to get home and see Pop. When Nikki got asked to do Fashions on the Field I thought I'd bring a couple of horses and make a trip out of it.
"It will be good to get home. I'm looking forward to it."
Alchin's brothers Jarrod and Alex combined for Temora Pacers Cup success in 2012 with Paleface Jasper.
Rickie has had a couple of drives in the race but is yet to taste success.
"I've had no luck at all in it," he said.
"I haven't been in too many, I've driven in it a couple of times but haven't had much luck."
Alchin is likely to start from gate two with Little Change, after the scratching of the emergency, and Alchin described the seven-year-old as a 'place chance'.
"With the right run home he could (win)," he said.
"He's just a honest horse and if he gets the right run he can be there at the finish. He's a bit of a one-trick pony in that he needs to be driven conservatively. In Queensland, he was a real swooper up there and won going 1:55 at Redcliffe. He likes the little tracks and that's why I decided to bring him to this race.
"He's got to come with one run. If he got cover in the first five he'll be running home. The horse is going alright, he had his first run back at Goulburn the other day and ran the quickest last half of the race when he ran fourth to Jimison."
Alchin said his best chance of the night is Regulus. The four-year-old will resume for his first start since running seventh in the Queensland Derby in July.
