Coffs Harbour is our Thursday country meeting this week and we have 7 races on the card. It looks a solid country meeting and hopefully we can find some winners. The weather has been fine, so we should be racing on a good surface with the rail +6m 1000m – 350m where cutaway applies and true the remainder.
