Wagga trainer Gary Colvin hopes Snippet Of Gold can measure up in a competitive feature at Murrumbidgee Turf Club on Thursday.
A number of talented sprinters have been drawn to Wagga for the $50,000 Gold BOBS bonus attached to the Rodney Parsons OAM Handicap (1400m).
Snippet Of Gold is just one of three Wagga-trained horses in the field, alongside Chris Heywood's pair of Fermanagh Lad and Delivered.
Snippet Of Gold has performed strongly at his two runs this preparation, winning first-up at Wagga on December 24, before running second behind Gold Touch at the same track two weeks later.
Snippet Of Gold has drawn barrier 17 and Colvin hopes the seven-year-old can get some luck to feature in the finish.
"It's a tough race alright," Colvin said.
"It's a pretty awkward draw. He'll get back a bit but we'll want a bit of luck and get a bit of cover hopefully.
"He loves the track and a bit of sting out of the ground won't worry him too much. He's a high maintenance horse but at his best he would be very competitive in this sort of race. On his day when he's right, he makes it hard for the other horses."
Brendan Ward will ride Snippet Of Gold, who is drawn in barrier 17.
Colvin has four horses in at Wagga with Country Championships contender Tully Toff also set to trial after the last as he prepares for the SDRA Qualifier at Albury on Saturday week.
