All eyes will be on the track on Saturday as local trainers put gallopers to the test weeks out from one of the biggest days on the race calendar.

With just three more meets to go until the TABTouch Geraldton Gold Cup runs on April 10, form will be important.

Gordon Spowart is in contention for the club’s trainer of the year title with Perth-based Adam Durrant, and both have runners entered.

Spowart had accepted with five on Thursday — Mountain Ash, Hero Of The Dawn, Safe To Makeup, Dashing Image and Frosty Belle.

Tony Scally had accepted with Significant Hero and Red Epic.

Significant Hero won last meet, in February.

Corn Cob was set to represent Julia Martins in race six with Natasha Faithfull aboard, the same combination that won last meet.

The hope will be for the 10-year-old to better his record of three wins in his last six starts.
