Ride High will have to circle the field over the short trip at Terang on Saturday to extend his winning streak to 11, with a competitive field of eight stepping forward for the $30,000 Christians Bus Gammalite Pace.

Clayton Tonkin's speed machine will start from gate eight in the second race on Saturday, which will stream on Trots Vision at 6.02pm, with on-track Trots Vision hosts Paul Campbell and Toby McKinnon to join race caller Dan Mielicki to track all runners from the Parade Ring to the Winners' Circle.

Ride High's Group 1 winning stablemate Out To Play will present for his most stern test to date in the field along with Gary Lawlor's local hope Bad Billy, Leroy and Danny O'Brien's pair Im Sir Blake and Perspective, AJ and Beau Tindale's Idealsomemagic, Andy Gath's Beach Surge and Basil Dooley's Bettor Be The Bomb.

We'll have to wait a little longer for the eagerly awaited Ride High-Lochinvar Art showdown, with David Moran nominating but later scratching his Shepparton superstar for Saturday night’s headline pace.

An 11th straight victory would draw Ride High level with Craig Cross-trained Cash N Flow, with the latter saluting at Menangle last Saturday night to join an elite list of 49 horses who have won 11 successive races or more in Australia since the turn of the millennium.

The Terang card will also feature the Volstead @ Haras Des Trotteurs Trot, with Gath’s speed freak Majestuoso to take on Kylie Sugars’ talented Sammy Showdown, local hope Gus An Maori for Matt Craven, Chris Svanosio’s pair Anywhere Hugo and Brandlo Prince, Julian Jobe’s top line My Skypocket and Brent Lilley trio Mass Destruction, Storm Cloud and Kyvalley Clichy.

There will also be plenty of eyes on the $20,000 Terang Co-Op Pace, with Mick Stanley’s A Fair Ol Dance amid a talented field. The four-year-old's co-owners include AFL trio Josh Jenkins, Craig Hutchison and Liam Pickering, with A Fair Ol Dance getting regular airplay on SEN 1116’s Off The Bench on Saturday mornings, when Stanley joins Hutchison and Pickering about 11.30am for a Trots Life segment.

Second up after a bold showing at Ballarat when second to Diamonds N Cash, A Fair Ol Dance will step out against Pacifico Dream, Rocknroll Eyes, Our Millionaire, Majestic Cruiser, Our Jimmie, Terryrama and stablemate Boncel Benjamin.

The AFL flavor continues in the night's final race, the Jilliby Kung Fu @ Goodtime Lodge 3YO Pace.

Local hope Highway To Heaven, for trainer Marg Lee, is co-owned by Brisbane Lion Darcy Gardiner and Sydney Swan Lewis Taylor and will go upagainst Damien Burns’ very smart Youaremy Sunshine, Yianni, who’s won five of seven since joining Emma Stewart’s camp, first-up Kiwi Willie Go West (Amanda Grieve), Sea Lover (Rebecca East) and Major Jodi (Peter Cole).
