Coming off a fast-finishing second, Kerry Weir hopes Sunday will be the day for Cape Cluster.
Unplaced in his first five starts, the Tumut trainer was pleased with how the three-year-old responded to stepping out in distance.
He races over 1400 metres again at Gundagai on Sunday.
"He ran a good second the other day at Wagga and was last when they straightened, flew home and was a bit unlucky," Weir said.
"It was quite a nice run.
"He's out and out a 2000-metre horse but there are no mile maidens for him anywhere.
"He is still a bit green and just needs more racing as she wanders all over the shop."
Weir is also hoping Foxlike can make it two in a row in the National Jockeys Trust Benchmark 58 Hcp (1400m).
He surprised with his racing pattern to return to winning ways after six unplaced efforts.
"When he led I got a bit of a shock and I thought he might knock up a little bit only being second up but Wardy (Brendan Ward) said he never looked like getting beat," Weir said.
"It was quite a good run."
He struggled to split the pair for his best chance and is also hoping Jounama can get back to her previous form.
"She has had a few little setbacks and that is why it has been so long between runs," he said.
"She had an abscess and has got over that, touch wood, but she goes good fresh and goes good at Gundagai.
"She will go back to last so the barrier draw (15) won't hurt her and her work last Saturday was quite nice so hopefully she can bounce back to a bit of form."
Deemed Corrupt and Maci Tess complete his chances across the seven-race card.
Jean Van Overmeire will ride all five of Weir charges.
It is the first time the pair will combine and after exploring a number of different options Weir is more than happy to leg him on board.
"I was talking to Brodie (Loy's) manager who said he would come down for a few rides so I said he can ride the lot if he wants," Weir said.
"He is quite a good jockey."
