Pacing returns to Donaldson Park tonight, with plenty of quality sprinkled across the eight race program.

It may be the last race of the night, but plenty of runners hold strong claims ahead of the Bunbury Herald Graduation MS Pace (2100m).

Clinton Hall’s mare Lil China Doll has shortened over the past two days to lead the pre-race fancies despite starting from the second row, while The Glass Ceiling and and Camilla are also tipped to feature at the head of the field.

Arguably the shortest priced favourite of the night is Barry Howlett’s red-hot runner Jack Mac, who should claim line honours in the Plumbers and Gas Fitters Bunbury MS Pace (2100m).

The four year old has made nothing short of a scintillating start to its pacing career.

After no placings in its first five starts, Jack Mac has won 12 from 13 – including trials – with nine of those victories at Gloucester Park.

Racing gets under way at 6.20pm.
