Millers Forest harness racing trainer Chris Bourke will chase a first group race success when Que Sera competes in the Go Girlfriend Series Final at Menangle Park on Saturday night.

Que Sera has won three of 22 starts for Bourke since coming to his stable last December.

The four-year-old will start from gate nine of 10 in the $30,000 group 3 mares race on Saturday night after securing a place with second to Love My Sister in a heat at Newcastle on May 31.

Que Sera (Auckland Reactor), with Blake Fitzpatrick to drive, was $41 with TAB on Friday and Bourke was not discounting her chances.

"It's good to make the final in any group race," Bourke said.

"They are all an even bunch and lightly assessed.

"There's a couple of good ones, of courses. [Luke] McCarthy's got one out of the good mare Fleur De Lil, Love My Sister, that won the Newcastle heat ours came second in. She's a handy type.

"Ours has pulled up good, and it just all depends how the race is run.

"She's drawn bad but she's got no gate speed anyway. 

"All the better ones are in the same boat except the good one from Queensland, [Rocknroll Pearl], it's got a bit of gate speed."

Morisset trainer Mark Callaghan and his son Jack have a busy night across the Menangle and Newcastle meetings on Saturday night.

Jack will drive strong hopes Repartee in race eight and Glenn Ford in the fourth at Newcastle for his dad.
