Leading Wagga trainer Trevor Sutherland will kick off two big days of racing when he saddles up 13 horses on his home track on Friday.
It will be the start of two big days, as he plans to take another seven to Carrathool's annual Cup meeting on Saturday.
Sutherland is looking forward to seeing his team in action.
"It should be a good couple of days," Sutherland said.
"It will be good to get back onto the home track (on Friday). We've got a lot of maidens in, and I don't usually like running so many against each other but we've got a lot of nice staying types that need a run to kick off things off.
"Then we'll take seven to Carrathool on Saturday. It's a good track, I've always found it good so I've got no problems going there."
Sutherland is most excited about Demanding Mo's prospects at Wagga on Friday. The three-year-old has only had two runs, for a fourth and second, and tackles the Gold Cup Horse Trough 3YO Maiden (1000m).
"I think Demanding Mo is drawn to get a lovely run and will be very hard to beat," Sutherland said.
"I thought his run was outstanding the other day. He got held up and attacked the line super well. They have a huge opinion of Nick Olive's (Exotic Deel) that won the race. He pulled up well and should run really well."
Sutherland also expects a forward showing from Miss Elsie May in the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale Maiden Plate (1200m).
The winner trainer of that race, plus the Benchmark 58 Handicap (1200m), will receive a $5000 Magic Millions voucher, plus flights and accommodation to either the Adelaide or Gold Coast March sales.
"Miss Elsie May should run pretty well," he said.
"It was her first go in blinkers the other day and she was a little bit tardy from the gate, which they can be sometimes, but she got home quite good after that."
Sutherland's two Championships runners from last week, Azaryah and Real Key will both go around over the two days.
Azaryah, who ran eighth at Albury last Saturday, will contest the $27,000 Tom Patton Cup (1800m).
"I think she'll go really well," he said.
"I thought her run in the Championships was very, very good. She attacked the line and was only beaten five lengths. She drops in weight and steps up to the 1800 that will suit."
Real Key will back up from his fifth placing at Albury when he carries the top weight of 61 kilograms in the $20,000 Rivcott Carrathool Cup (1400m).
"He went super last week. He was terribly weighted compared to the others and I don't think a class five horse has made the final yet," he said.
"He's in no mans land now. It's a good money race at Carrathool. He got $5000 at Albury last week and gets $11,500 if he wins this on Saturday."
