Connie Greig will take a trio of hopes to Tamworth on Monday while fellow Dubbo trainer Clint Lundholm will also be in action with promising type Larlabrook.

Bob Tyack will also make the trip north and round out the Dubbo hopes at the eight-race meeting.

However, there is a chance all three could be forced to stay at home with rain predicted for the New England city on Monday.

If the Christmas-themed meeting does go ahead, Greig will be hoping Emo Girl can back up her strong win at Warren last time out.

The seven-year-old, set to make her seventh start this preparation, had shown mixed form leading into Warren but scored a strong a strong-half length win.

At Tamworth meeting, apprentice Chloe Baker will be in the saddle from barrier nine as Emo Girl contests one of the Buy Your Christmas Turkey Now Benchmark 55 Handicap (1200m) events.

That race will also feature Tyack’s Billy Bent Ear, to be ridden by Greg Ryan from barrier one.

The consistent Bel Attrait has been banging on the door and Greig will see her race in the Hen and Stag Benchmark 54 Handicap (2100m) while veteran Bee Plus, second up from a spell, will go from barrier nine in the other Buy Your Christmas Turkey race.

Lundholm’s Larlabrook, which was scratched from Friday’s feature sprint at Mudgee, will have Ryan onboard and will start in barrier six in the Turkey Hatching Class 3 Handicap (1000m).

Larlabrook ran seventh at Newcastle last start but has three wins and a second from six races.

Racing starts 1.40pm.
