Roy McCabe only has a small team in work but he'll be out to keep a winning run going when he travels to Dubbo on Tuesday.
The Bathurst trainer took just the one hope to Dubbo Turf Club's Melbourne Cup Day meeting last year and walked a winner, and he's a chance to do the same on Tuesday as Gaze Beyond is his lone chance in the Daily Liberal Benchmark 50 Handicap (1200m).
Gaze Beyond heads to Dubbo having won last start at Mudgee, one of a number of recent victories for McCabe.
McCabe only has the four horses in work but he's been punching well above his weight, with five wins recorded in the trainer's past nine starts.
Three of those came from I Stole Your Love, who has been nominated to race at Orange on Friday.
It's Dubbo before that though for McCabe, and Anthony Cavallo will again be in the saddle after doing the job at Mudgee.
That day, also in a benchmark 50 event, carried 59kg and he'll be up at 60.5kg at Dubbo in what is the most weight he's carried this preparation.
Baker's Image, a newcomer to the Justin Stanley stables at Narromine, will also contest the race and will be out to improve on a last-placed finish in his last start.
That was his first start for Stanley, having previously been trained by Gayna Williams.
Williams will take on her former charge as the Mudgee trainer has Griffin's Gaze in the event.
Clayton Gallagher, fresh from a Dubbo treble on Saturday, will ride Rufio for Clint Lundholm while fellow hometown trainer Kody Nestor will saddle up both Bellator and Onya Boss.
A former Victoria galloper, Onya Boss has scored a win and a third in three starts for Nestor.
Nestor will also debut two other newcomers on Tuesday.
Eva's Deel will content the Western Magazine F&M Maiden Plate (1200m) while Queen Isla will be in action in the Mailbox Shopper Benchmark 58 Handicap (1600m).
Both made the move to Dubbo from the stables of Gulgong trainer Brett Thompson.
Eva's Deel will debut on Tuesday, having run fifth on her one trial for Thompson back in June.
The filly will go from gate five of five with promising apprentice Kate Cowan in the saddle while Jake Pracey-Holmes will pilot Queen Isla.
Five-year-old mare Queen Isla ran fifth at Mudgee last month in her last start for Thompson.
Racing at Dubbo Turf Club starts at 2pm on Tuesday, while the fashions on the field is just one of the off-track attractions on the day.
