Heyfield Cup this Sunday

AFTER a month’s break, racing resumes at Greenwattle on Sunday with the staging of the Heyfield Cup.

The seven-race program, principally for the middle distance and staying horses, will also feature two heats of the Gippsland Middle Distance Staying Series.

With the track in the heavy range at the time of the weights being issued, horses will need to be fully fit to excel on Sunday.

One of the most promising and polished apprentice jockeys, Chad Schofield, will be riding a couple of horses for Nigel Blackiston and these could be worth watching.

Cliff Murray has some first starters entered as well as Noir Court and Haka Brave. Other local entries include Sergius (Paul Worthington), Uno No (Ian Hutchins), Zaccheus first up for Colin Butcher and Unique Ruler (Frankie Stockdale).
