There’s a little more reason to get to Dawson Park on Friday night with the 11-race meeting also acting as a charity event.

Money will be raised for Give Me 5 For Kids and there will be plenty of attractions in the shape of live music, a jumping castle, a mini sports area and, of course, the action on the track.

One of the many open events on the card is the Dig Deep for Give Me 5 For Kids Stakes (400m).

Happy Chap Zarr is likely to jump as favourite but box is likely to pose somewhat of a challenge.

The experienced campaigner from the kennels of Paul Wasson has 10 wins from 59 starts, the last victory coming three starts back at Coonabarabran.

The Bradley O’Neil-trained Myrniong Smello has been racing consistently lately and will go from box eight while the likes of Ziggy Buzzard, Katie Taro and May Tell have shown real talent at different times.

There will also be plenty of interest around heats of the Ladbrokes Daily Videos series, with four of the qualifiers over 318m to be run.

Some of the leading contenders will appear in the later heats, with the Charmaine Roberts-trained Silver Keeping in heat three and the in-form She Loves Sugar contesting the final qualifier.

Racing starts at 7.04pm on Friday night.
