Quality field to wage for the Pink Silks Cup

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.
