Just For Dave has drawn barrier three in the third race of Friday night’s program, with connections electing to use her five-point concession claim of driver Tiarna Ford.

Tiarna will also be in the sulky of three-year-old Lets Go Bill, who lines up in the first leg of the quaddie, race five.

The gelded son of Stonebridge Regal scored in a trainer’s encouragement pace at his most recent race track appearance on 23 May.

He goes into Friday’s event with a recent trial under his belt on 22 November when fourth to No Nukes Skipper.
