Kris Lees and Brett Cavanough are set to square off at Scone on Monday to decide the 2017/18 season Scone Trainers Premiership.
Currently locked with 14 wins a piece, both stables are well represented for the season finale being the Australian Hoteliers Association (AHA) & “Where There’s a Will" race day.
The Lees team brings three live chances headlined by the very well-bred and last start winner Road To Heaven appearing in the AHA Class 3 over 1400m.
In what is sure to be a lively betting affair with 14 acceptors, the Lees gelding will face four other last start winners alongside the very consistent Cavanough galloper Mark My Word and the Bjorn Baker trained Bulletson.
By High Chaparral out of Group 1 Oaks winning mare Lights of Heaven, it is expected that Road to Heaven will relish the 1400m around the big open spaces of Scone with premiership leading hoop Aaron Bullock remaining on board.
Race five sees a very even and inform bunch of sprinters contesting the Class 1 1000m scamper.
Cavanough and Lees go head to head again here where last start two-year-old Grafton winner Scherezare takes on the older horses including Lees' consistent provincial galloper Mr Tindal.
It's far from a race in two. I’m a Cool Kid, the lightly raced five-year-old old son of I am Invincible from the Gayna Williams yard, is returning to Scone primed to spoil the party following his last start second at the same track.
Scone has eight races commencing at 12:20pm, with the surface currently rated a Good 4.
