Coffs Harbour Track Update (Scheduled To Race Tuesday)

Thw fate of Tuesday's Coffs Harbour will be decided after an early race morning track inspection by stewards.

The Coffs Harbour track is rated a heavy 10 after receiving 350mm of rain for the week up until Monday morning.

"Some sections are worse than others, and there's a section around the 1200m which is very heavy," said Coffs Harbour Racing Club racing manager Tim Saladine. "Stewards will inspect the track again tomorrow morning at 6.30 and make a decision on whether we'll race. Hopefully we can go ahead with the meeting but any more rain and we're in trouble."

Seven races are set down for Coffs Harbour, including two Benchmark 60 Hcps. In the Park Beach Bowls Club Benchmark 60 over 1215m, Poet's Trick and Artova boast the best heavy-track credentials of the 10 acceptors.

The Steven Dixon-trained Poet's Trick has three wins and three placings from 10 starts in heavy ground while the Neil Godbolt-trained Artova is a winner at her ony start in those conditions. Pomme Petite is also a last-start winner at Coffs Harbour on a track rated a heavy 8.

In the Momentum Financial Services Benchmark 60 Hcp over 1515m, only Greselin, Zuccherina and eight-year-old Before You Think have any exposed heavy-track form. Before You Think, trained at Coffs Harbour by Basil Ryan, hasn't fired in recent starts but is a five-time winner in heavy ground.
