Quick Spin has shown promise for Justin Stanley since arriving at his Narromine stables and on Sunday he'll look to turn that into victory.
The five-year-old gelding has only been with Stanley in recent months, having previously been trained at Hawkesbury by Mitchell and Desiree Kearney.
After missing out in cups at Gunnedah and Coonamble in his first two starts for Stanley, Quick Spin caught the eye when running second at both Narromine and Coonabarabran in his past two starts.
Those performances were good enough to lead Stanley to nominate Quick Spin for Saturday's Highway Handicap at Rosehill but after he didn't earn a place there focus was turned to the Cotton Cup.
Daniel Northey has the ride on Sunday and Quick Spin will carry the 54kg bottom weight in the feature.
A handy field has been put together for the $32,000 feature and Quick Spin will start an outsider against some experienced cup campaigners.
Tough campaigner Free Billy shapes as the one to beat having scored a strong win in the Coonabarabran Cup last time out for Moree trainer Peter Sinclair.
Dubbo Gold Cup winner Steamin' was handed the top weight of 61kg but that will be offset by the 3kg claim of apprentice Ashleigh Stanley on Sunday.
Most Exalted ran fourth in the recent Coonamble Cup and then finished well at Eagle Farm last time out and he'll carry 58kg from gate nine for Gooree trainer Mack Griffith at Warren.
Rodney Robb also has one of the leading chances, with Bells 'N' Bows gunning for a third successive win for the Nyngan trainer.
Dar Lunn has Helstar and Chilcotin in the field while his fellow Dubbo trainer Darren Hyde will saddle up Mr Epic.
Racing starts at 1.30pm on Sunday with the cup the seventh on the card at 5pm.
