Appin trainer Nicole Molander looks set to play a major role in the upcoming feature races in New South Wales with her stable stars returning to full fitness. Lightly raced trotter Keystone Del will race at Tabcorp Park Menangle this Saturday for just the third time since competing in a heat of the Great Southern Star at Melton in March.

"He won on Saturday night but he is a funny horse and can get stirred up if something upsets him, he got a little bit worked up when he had to wait to go on the track when the tractor was out there on the weekend but that's just him," Molander said.

"At this stage his main target will be the Franco Trotters series here in Sydney and then I will have a think about another shot at the Great Southern Star but that is a long time off and I want to see how he goes."

Molander confirmed that Keystone Del will be racing every three weeks or so in the lead up to his target.

"I don't want to be racing him off harsh handicaps but I think there should be a good race for him every few weeks so I will just keep him ticking over."

Neville Vaughan is another talented trotter in the Molander stable but he could be headed for a spell depending on his performance this weekend.

"He has been up for quite a while, I will see how he races this week but he is definitely in line for a decent break so we will just have to wait and see with him."

Pure Power is Molander's best performed pacer having competed in a heat of this year's Inter Dominion series and he is set to resume in the near future.

"He is only about four weeks away and his main aim is the Miracle Mile, I'm really happy with how he is coming up and hopefully he measures up to the better horses again this time in."
