Race 7 – Narromine Cup Showcase – This feature event will see a total of $45,000 in prize money on offer. Present Sense is in career best form right now and will start as the favourite in this race. After winning three straight races, he has placed second in his last two starts, the last of which saw him just barely pipped at the post for the win. Has strong genuine claims in this and looks very tough to beat. A Magic Zariz has won 3 of his last 4 races which also sees him in the best form of his career to date/ He ran third last outing and is expected to be in the mix here. Leucura has been finishing very consistently and solidly in the top 4 for several starts now. He’s won 2 of his last 6, placed in 2 others and ran fourth in the other two starts. He has the ability to take this one out.
