The rail will remain at five metres for what is a mammoth meeting of ten races on Sunday.
The track could be getting a shade worn by the end of the meeting with cool and overcast weather forecast.
The good news is the track is dry as it is predicted they will run on a Good 4.
Top Melbourne jockey Damien Oliver rides at the meeting and the leading city stables are strongly represented as usual now at all country meetings.
Should be some good value along the way and keep an eye on betting moves.

No5 NANGAWOOKA won impressively over 1600m here two starts ago. Then ran a solid fourth over 1600m at Sandown on June 14. There was good form coming out of that race and he does love this circuit with five starts for a win and two placings.
No7 BATTLES END scored a driving 1½ length win at his last appearance here over 1617m on June 18. Georgina Cartwright keeps the ride and her 2kg allowance reduces his impost down to 55kg, which is a kilo less than he carried last time.
SCRATCHED No3 LOLA LU was first-up when finishing a close fourth over 1419m here on June 18. Top jockey Luke Nolen gets the ride here and she drops 3kg to 58kg and will be fitter for the outing. Makes strong appeal here.
No2 GLACIAL AGE is an Irish import who will strip fitter on his first up sixth over 1600m here on June 1. He has a gear change too with cheekers been worn for the first time. He drops a half-kilo to 58.5kg and has each-way claims.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 GLACIAL AGE
No15 WENNER (BEST BET) was heavily backed into a $2.80 favourite and did not let down his punters when steaming away to a brilliant 1½ length win in a 1400m 3yo maiden at Pakenham on June 20. That was on the synthetic but should have no issue switching back to grass here and Linda Meech rides again from barrier one.
SCRATCHED No7 OUR TURN struck a bog track last time and go on previous two starts, which were impeccable.
No4 MAGNESPRIT is from leading Victorian sire Magnus and is chasing a hat-trick here.
SCRATCHED No11 ELLA gets ace jockey Damien Oliver to ride here and would look for sharp improvement.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 OUR TURN
No5 WHYCATCHIM (NEXT BEST BET) was resuming from a 157-day spell when fought hard but may have been wanting last few strides when second over 1000m at Mornington on June 12. That was on a bog and will be racing on firmer conditions here. Gets a soft run from barrier two and has a most sound second-up record.
No6 BEL BLASTER is a three-year-old making his third appearance. He will wear a tongue-tie here after his brilliant win over 1200m at Mornington on December 28.
No4 VEGAS BEAUTY has a great first-up record and will have winkers back on here.
SCRATCHED No12 MRS MARTIN won at Geelong against her own sex two starts ago and down in class on her last run.
VALUE RUNNER: No12 MRS MARTIN
No6 LADY SKILLS has been given a let-up and she will come back better. Forget her last-start fifth at Cranbourne on April 28. She has a fantastic first-up record and she gets senior jockey Chris Symons to ride from barrier one. Looks good here.
SCRATCHED No8 MISS COUNTERFEIT scored imposing wins at Ballarat before finished fifth over 1100m against her own sex at Geelong on April 30. She was given a let up and is now back with ace jockey Damien Oliver to ride from barrier 13. Respect.
SCRATCHED No7 UNRULY STUDENT (BEST ROUGHIE) showed enough fight to warrant here before finishing 11th over 1208m here on June 18. Previous two runs on provincial tracks were solid and with apprentice Ethan Brown’s 1.5kg claim will carry 57kg, which is a drop of 2kg.
No11 WINSPOT ran a top race first-up to run a close second over 1100m against her own sex on June 1. She returns here and she gets a 2kg drop in weight to 58kg. Her draw in 11 could see her trapped wide again but she is worth each-way thought.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 UNRULY STUDENT
