Geraldton will be treated to two race days in a week.

The Geraldton Turf Club will run a midweek meeting on Thursday with a full race card and some hot competition.

Leading local trainer Gordon Spowart said he would be part of the action on the day — though he only has a couple of runners in Sans Le Sou and Mountain Ash.

“They should go all right,” Spowart said. “Sans Le Sou has won a couple in a row but is up against a pretty good field.

“The other horse won a maiden and he’s stepping up, so it’s most probably going to be harder for him.”

Five-year-old Sans Le Sou has won in her last three starts and will run in the rating 58 and up handicap in race six.

Three-year-old Mountain Ash will set the scene for his stablemate, running in race five in the class two handicap.

Ashley Maley and Kim Anderson accepted for the meet on Monday.

Allaboutthecraic, She’s Artie, Pocorn Tender and Kiwi horse Stocktaka will represent Maley.

Anderson accepted with five-year-old Startrade.

The Geraldton-based trainer had a great day last Thursday and will be hoping his string of stellar outings this season continues.

Startrade and Dark Peak scored a double last time out.

The six-year-old has three wins and a second placing in his last four starts.
