The Bunbury Turf Club will host its penultimate meeting of 2018 on Sunday, with racing getting under way at 1.30pm.

Plenty of focus will be on the class five Southern Built Homes and Sheds handicap (1675m) with several runners capable of victory.

Daniel Staeck’s six-year-old Mouquet enters with solid claims, with the mare having placed in her last three starts.

Of those runs, she ran a solid second to Nicconi’s Boy at Ascot on November 6 from barrier six and should fancy the 1675m journey.

Another who could figure in the finish is eight-year-old Our Mate Al, who past two second placed finishes both chalked up in Bunbury.

The field in the class three All American At Magic Millions handicap (1200m) is a strong one, with four runners coming off a spell.

Throw in four who are backing up from placed finishes last time out and the possibilities of victory appear to be vast.

Lou Luciani’s three-year-old Rebel Yell could potentially make it three wins from five starts if he claims line honours, while Holly Locke’s in-form gelding is a chance, despite drawing barrier nine.
