Monday's meeting at Fairfield is part of the TAB Carnival Of Cups and Secretary-Manager of the 'Trotdome' Ross Scherf is expecting plenty of excitement on and off the track.

The feature event, the time honoured J.D Watts Memorial has attracted a strong field and Scherf admits that it is the race he is looking forward to the most.

"A standing start event over 2513 metres is a great spectacle and it has been won by some very good horses in the past."

"The club is also running the 'Moment Of Glory' for horses that haven't had much success in their careers, the Bat Out Of Hell will be run over 1313 metres."

On the subject of the JD Watts Memorial a strong field has been drawn with former South Australian based trainer Aaron Brown looking to break through for a NSW feature with Rathmore Lady.

The mare put the writing on the wall at Menangle last start with a close third behind Armbro Chimes after storming home from the tail of the field at the 400 metres. She has drawn ideally off the front row and is likely to make her presence felt.

Adam Brand will perform for the final time for Harness Racing NSW and Scherf has confirmed there will be three bookmakers on course for the strong crowd expected.

"There will be a jumping castle for the kids and being a public holiday I'm expecting a very good rollup."

Just by being on course at Fairfield on Monday, patrons will get the chance to go into the draw to win a brand new Toyota Yaris to be drawn at the Harness Racing New South Wales Awards Night on October 25.

The first of ten races is scheduled for 1pm.
