Fields are confirmed for tomorrow afternoon’s Bunbury Turf Club meeting, with an eight race program on offer.

Several local trainers have an opportunity to get off to a positive start, by banking early season wins on their home track.

One of those trainers, Justin Warwick, will have an opportunity early in the afternoon – with his four year old Rojo Calor having drawn barrier five in the Civilcon Construction handicap (1400m).

Aside from his last placed finish at Kalgoorlie on September 23, the gelding has placed two of his last four starts.

Another one to watch in this race should be Adam Durrant’s three year old Deception Game, with William Pike in the saddle.

Having won two on the bounce, the gelding is amongst the pre-race fancies, although he was drawn barrier two.

Tom Widdeson should also feel confident his five year old Distant Trilogy can continue his impressive run of form in tomorrow’s Market City Meats handicap (1200m) if recent form is an accurate form guide.

Since returning from a spell, the gelding has placed in his last two starts, along with running fourth at Belmont Park on September 8.

Others tipped to give him some competition include Daniel and Ben Pearce’s mare Tips and Scandals – who is coming off consecutive placings at Toodyay and Belmont Park – and potentially three year old Mankind, who won his maiden start at Pinjarra Park on September 23.

Racing kicks off at 1.03pm tomorrow afternoon, with the final race at 5.05pm.
