Fresh from a second city win in the space of a month, Brett Thompson is now targeting another country cup.
The Gulgong trainer took out a Highway event at Randwick with Amy's Shadow on Saturday, the mare's second win in Sydney after saluting at Rosehill in late September.
The rising star, who has four wins from nine starts, could next be in action in Coonabarabran Cup later this month but before that Thompson is targeting the Dandy Cup in Narromine.
That event will be run on Saturday and Thompson has nominated both Northern Lights and Set To Cruise for the 1200m feature.
Northern Lights is also one of a whopping 43 nominations received for Saturday's Highway Handicap at Randwick.
Both of Thompson's hopes are returning from spells and were in action at a trial at Scone late last month.
Northern Lights won that trial while Set To Cruise, a newcomer to the Gulgong stables, was fourth.
Northern Lights hasn't raced since May while Set To Cruise last raced for previous trainer Mick Huxtable in July.
The Dandy Cup received 24 nominations in total, with four of those from the Mick Mulholland stables at Wellington.
Mulholland has put forward Athena's Lad, Demonize, Divine Thief, and Universal Thief.
Final fields for the seven-race meeting will be released on Thursday.
