Moruya’s Monday meeting will be the last for the season and all the club premierships are up for close finishes.
The trainer’s title looks a race in two with Natalie Jarvis just in front of the fast-finishing Robert and Luke Price stable.
The Prices landed a treble at the June 28 meeting to get within a win of Natalie who, until then, looked to have the title in the bag.
Both stables are very keen to win the title with Natalie having eight runners and the Prices 10.
They both have good winning chances and while Robert has won the Moruya title on a number of occasions, the locals will be hoping for a Jarvis victory.
The jockeys' title is just as close with Jess Taylor one win in front of Winona Costin.
Nick Heywood is next on the table a further two wins back so it looks like the title will go to one of these two fine female riders. The question is will it be Jess or Winona’s smile that graces the winners stall.
Sonnets trained by Lynda Bundy needs a win in race 5 to take the lead for Horse of Year title. After a strong second at Moruya two weeks ago, she will be well in the betting.
However, it might come down to the last race to decide the titles with Malachi Crunch, the current leader for Horse of the Year title, out to cement the title and maybe get Natalie Jarvis over the line as well.
In the same race, the Prices will have two runners with Winona on Twirling Moss so it could be a grandstand finish.
It will be a great day's racing on Monday on yet another good Moruya racing surface - the race for the titles alone will be worth the admission fee!
