Wyong trainer Damien Lane missed out on a winner at Dubbo on Tuesday but he will be hoping for more success in the west when he saddles up two chances at Wellington on Sunday.
Lane has enjoyed a number of winners in recent times and Mosaytion, a gelding who won at Dubbo last month, lines up in the opening event at Wellington on Sunday.
The four-year-old has scored two wins and a second from his past three starts and will jump from barrier eight with Greg Ryan onboard on Sunday, following the release of the fields on Thursday.
Having Ryan in the saddle boosts any galloper’s chance but Mosaytion will also carry less weight on Sunday than he did when winning at Taree last start.
The progeny of Mosayter and Comeinspinna will carry 58.5kg at Wellington in the Class 3 Handicap (1700m).
The track is expected to be heavy again following all the recent rain but Mosaytion’s win at Dubbo last month was done on a Heavy 8.
Dubbo trainer Connie Greig has two hopes in the race with Our Sarastro and Malibu Stacy jumping from barriers seven and five respectively.
Lane’s other hope at Wellington is Gypsy Jean, who makes career start number two in the Soldiers Memorial Club Maiden Handicap (1100m).
The mare debuted all the way back in November of last year and ran sixth at Canberra but after a 44-week spell she ran second in a trial at Wyong earlier this month.
There will be seven races at Wellington on Sunday with the first jumping at 1.45pm.
