He might only have a small team in work but Peter Stanley has been enjoying a handy run of form and he'll look to keep that going at Gilgandra on Saturday.
The Wellington trainer has scored wins at Dubbo, Mudgee, and Warren recently and has also finished with a number of placings.
On Saturday he'll be in action at Gilgandra after nominating Pepita, Stolen Gift, and Narrow Neck Nelson for the six-race meeting.
"I've only got a small team but they're all going well. We're managing to keep our heads above water," Stanley told Racing NSW.
Pepita has a win and a second in his past three starts while Stolen Gift has had just the one start for the veteran trainer after making the move from Queanbeyan stables of Mike Petrovic.
Narrow Neck Nelson's form doesn't jump off the page with just one win in 31 starts but a last-start third was a promising result for a horse Stanley has a real soft spot for.
"He's a beauty," Stanley said.
"He is as honest as they come and apart from that win, he has run ten placings for more than $50,000 in prizemoney."
Named after the mountain range that's part of the Blue Mountains, Narrow Neck Nelson will contest the Benchmark 50 Handicap *1800m) at Gilgandra.
Pepita was put forward for the Benchmark 58 Handicap (1550m) and Stolen Gift was nominated for the Class 2 Handicap (1280m).
The meeting attracted 164 nominations in total and the Gilgandra Jockey Club will be hoping it goes ahead after rain forced the abandonment of a number of meetings around the state this week.
Bathurst's Tuesday meeting was one of those.
That meeting will be rescheduled after nearly 30mls of rain fell on the track in the space of 24 hours.
