With a start under his belt, and Big Surf absent, it is D Gs Camme's race to lose and race analyst Les MacIsaac agrees.

Machinthesand is the morning line choice for driver Norris Rogers, trainer Hughie Murphy and owners Noonan Holdings Ltd and Russell and Karen Noonan. The six-year-old son of Mach Three has drawn post 5 in the group with his main opposition looking to come from the ultra-consistent pair of Oh To Be Me (Gary Chappell) and Carrera Angel (Rocky Schurman) from posts 3 and 4, respectively. Bowyer Hanover (Walter Cheverie) has the rail in the $1,800 contest while American Captain (Mike Campbell) will leave from post 2. Deviliciously Good will look to remain undefeated on race 6 on the program and she has a good post position to help make it happen.

She has the services of Mark Bradley for trainer Garth Cole and owner Blaine Thibeau of Kensington. She will face her biggest test to date Sunday, facing aged geldings like morning line favorite Mr Pogge (Mike McGuigan) and Bad Date (Jason Hughes). The race 9 afternoon back-up pace has Tyber Champ favored to bring home to lion's share of the $1,600 purse for driver Corey MacPherson, trainer Frank Banks and owners Ron Neill of Charlottetown and Kent Livingston of Cornwall.
