Down Another Track seeks fifth win

RACING returns to Pioneer Park tomorrow when the Emerald Jockey Club hosts a five-race card.

The highlight of the day will be seeing if the Glenda Bell-trained Down Another Track can land his fifth consecutive win. He is unbeaten since joining the Bell stable and although he may appreciate a longer trip than tomorrow's 1200 metres, he does look to have a class advantage over his rivals.

It wouldn't surprise to see him line up in the Emerald Cup in a fortnight's time and if he is going to be a chance in that, he will need to race well tomorrow.

Stable newcomer Gamble In Gold will contest the 1000 metre Class B Handicap and could get the day off to a flying start for the Bell stable.

The former Mark Lehmann-trained mare is now raced by Bell in partnership with two of her nephews, Glen Power and his brother Scott who will be doing the calling at Pioneer Park tomorrow.

Gamble In Gold has performed well in the past and is a winner over this track and distance.

The other locally trained runner with a strong chance is the Tony Button-trained Power To Exceed.

He may have proven costly to punters recently and he may not be suited by the 1200 metres at this stage of his preparation.

Leon's selections

Race 1: Gamble In Gold - Stars Are Born - Craiglea Key

Race 2: Zahmao - Dack's Faz - Liberty Tycoon

Race 3: Craiglea Art - Grantly Miss - Val's Bull

Race 4: Power To Exceed - Honoured - Bayby Girl

Race 5: Down Another Track - Alphonse - Hunting Lodge
