Fella to take home Warwick Pacing Cup

Race 1: 12.15pm, Warwick Credit Union Trotters Marathon (2950m SS)

A tough race to kick off proceedings over the marathon distance.

MONORAIL looks well-placed off his third at Redcliffe and fourth at Albion Park. If he gets off the stand safely, he should prove too strong.

Sean Teuma: 5-4-1-2

Anthony Collins: 5-4-2-1

Race 2: 12.49pm Warwick RSL Ron 'Kanga' Smith Cup (1950m SS)

The handicaps make this race a thriller off the stand start.

CULLEY BACKY is the class runner in the field, but will have to overcome a 60m handicap.

He hasn't raced off the stand this preparation, but has won three races at the conditions.

Sean Teuma: 6-5-4-1

Anthony Collins: 6-5-3-1

Race 3: 1.29pm Benz Brothers Cup (1950m MS)

Pretty confident the first two selections will fight out the finish here.

OUR MAJOR DAY starts from gate two, and should be able to hold the lead. He brings good Albion Park form into the race, and can hold out Shadow Pass.

Sean Teuma: 1-2-9-4

Anthony Collins: 1-2-8-5

Race 4: 2.09pm Furney's Komplete Range Pace (1950m MS)

The favoured runners in betting are drawn to the outside of the mobile, making positioning vital.

CLINTAL DO is first up after a fantastic preparation last time in. The four-year-old is drawn in gate six, so it will take a good drive from Andrew Millard to get him across.

Sean Teuma: 6-5-3-1

Anthony Collins: 6*-5-1-2

Race 5: 2.49pm Garrard's 2017 Warwick Pacing Cup (1950m MS)

The feature race of the program carries almost $5500 in prizemoney and a service fee to Changeover from Garrard's.

MY ULTIMATE FELLA has been a great performer for Darrel Graham, and the freshen-up is no deterrent here. He's a horse that can work to the front or sit wide, and still be there in the finish. ROYAL COUNSEL can complete the Graham quinella from the second row. NOLONGA YOUR CHOICE has been racing well without winning.

Sean Teuma: 5*-7-2-3

Anthony Collins: 7-5-6-3

Race 6: 3.29pm T-Bone's Fresh Food Market @ Aspley Pace (1950m MS)

The penultimate race on the card features a quality field. THUNDER MAC has had just the four career starts, but he looks to have a mountain of talent. The only query is drawing behind Our Mateo, but if he can land a good spot early, he'll be too strong.

Sean Teuma: 9-6-10-4

Anthony Collins: 9-6-4-10

Race 7: 4.09pm Creed & Lang Printers Pace (1950m MS)

Hopefully by this stage punters will be looking for the cherry on top.

ELZBOY should capitalise from an early speed battle. I'm expecting Machbino and Mister Hart to fight for the lead, and if Brittany Graham can sit in the one out, one back position, he can prove too strong in the straight.

Sean Teuma: 2-1-4-3

Anthony Collins: 1-2-4-3
