Quality field to wage for the Pink Silks Cup

THE T.G Jung Quarries Wayne Glen Pink Silks Cup will served as a fitting feature to Sunday's Coffs Harbour Pinks Silks Race Day.

It's very much an open field of mainly five- to eight-year geldings.

Today, punters have been taking a shine to One Bar None, trained by Townsville's Bub Baker.

Local trainer Gordon Yorke has two runners entered in the race with Murvate and stablemate Hidden Warrior.

Coffs trainer Brett Dodson will race Ekibuuka, with jockey Matthew Bennett aboard.

Esteemed jockey Scott Thurlow is booked to return to Coffs Harbour to ride the Paul Matts-trained Oakfield Invader.

The Sally Taylor-trained Bonne Cheval will be ridden by Peter Graham, while early punters were also having a look at the Jenny Graham-trained Gold Torque to be ridden by hoop Matthew Paget.

Jockey Ben Looker will be chasing back-to-back cup wins when he saddles up on Typhoon Red, trained by Neil Godbolt of Port Macquarie.

The open handicap run at 4.30pm over 1200m will offer $20,000 in prize money.

The seven-race TAB meeting will get under way at 1.35pm with the Key Employment 2-year-old Maiden Plate.

Prior to rainfall earlier today, the track was rated a soft 6.
