Prest had five runners and finished with a winner and four placings, although maiden performer One Eye Watching remains ineligible after finishing second in race 3 and is yet to break through (maidens do not qualify for the Final).

Prest's Supreme Lyne (Ashley Boyd, $6) has been a model of consistency and was runner-up to The Revenant in race 4 (Class B Handicap, 1280m) - her third successive placing on the picnic circuit after a second at Gosford and a third at Trangie.

Supreme Lyne is now equal seventh on the point score with 10 points.

Damysus (Ashley Boyd, $21) went to five points after his third to Spinning Dawn in race 5 (Trophy Handicap, 1300m).

The Prest stable finished with the quinella in the final race (Class B Hcp, 1600m) with Love 'N' Desire (Ashley Boyd, $4) defeating stablemate Tumbleweed (Katie Spalding, $4) by more than two lengths. Love 'N' Desire now sits on seven points with Tumbleweed on three.

To qualify for the NSW Picnic Champion Series Final, horses acquire points for every picnic race meeting they attend in NSW. The highest ranked horses at the end of the 12 months are then eligible to nominate for the NSW Picnic Champion Series Final.

All horses except Maidens are eligible to qualify (Clubs must be affiliated with the NSW Picnic Racing Association and use Approved Riders).
