Jayjaybenny has shown promise in his first two starts and Dubbo trainer-driver Garry Edwards will be hoping the four-year-old gelding can take the next step on Friday night.
Edwards will be one of a number of Dubbo trainers in action at Parkes Harness Racing Club on Friday, with the lightly-raced Jayjaybenny to contest the Cunninghams IGA Maiden Pace (1660m).
Jayjaybenny has had just the two starts in his career. He ran eighth on debut at Dubbo Paceway early last month and he followed that up with a third-placed finish at his home track on June 27.
On Friday night, Jayjaybenny will start from the outside of the front row with Edwards again in the gig.
He shapes as one of the main contenders but another Dubbo chance could be the one to stop him.
Miss Nea Star will start from the back row for trainer Peter Lew and, while the mare is yet to win in 18 career starts, a fourth-placed finish last time out just behind Jayjaybenny pointed to better things.
Stephen Dowton will drive Miss Nea Star for the first time on Friday.
Lloyd Sutton and the Martin Simmons are the other Dubbo trainers heading to Parkes.
In the driving stakes, Bathurst trainer-driver Nathan Turnbull will be looking to increase his lead at the top of the Parkes Mensland Leading Driver standings.
Turnbull will have five drives on the night and while the draws have done him little favours he has proven his ability to master the Parkes track time and time again this season.
Racing starts at 6.52pm.
