There have been some frosty nights of late but no matter what the weather, Saturday night's 10-race program at Melton promises to be a crackerjack meeting.

The Tabcorp Park Melton Cup Final, the Blacks A Fake Free for All and the Sumthingaboutmaori Trotters Free for All are the feature events with Race 1 kicking off at 5.30pm.

This week's Trots/AFL Saturday night special is one for the Cats fans in Top 4 Expectations, while Victoria's own Smoken Up will have his last South Australian run on Sunday before the curtain falls once and for all at Melton next month.
