Racing returns to Warragul next Monday.

Gippsland pacing fillies Magical Delight and Courageous Call will compete in the $150,000 Harness Racing Victoria Oaks at Melton this Saturday night.

The Gary Quinlan-trained pair qualified for the event after excellent performances in their heats last week.

Raced by large syndicates of local trots followers, Magical Delight and Courageous Call will both start at good odds in Saturday night's race, which has drawn together an outstanding field of young horses.

No doubt connections are thrilled just to be represented in such a prestigious event, regardless of the result.

At the Yarra Valley meeting on Monday, Gippsland was well represented throughout the day.

Gary Quinlan scored another winner, with Professor Tom scoring for owner, Warragul Harness Racing Club stalwart Grant Rathjen.

Trafalgar horseman Chris Hunter produced the quinella in the trotters' race.

Lazy Sunday won after an eye-catching run at Warragul on Cup day, narrowly defeating stablemate Slancio.

Hunter's son Glenn drove the winner, and both horses will compete against each other again this Saturday night in the Victorian Square Trotters Association Cup Final at Melton, where Glenn will have the pick of the drives.

Local horseman Matt Cormick produced Mor Laag to win the feature event on the program at odds of over $51.

Cormick trains his horse at Carrum Downs but his family have been involved in trotting locally for many years.

Mor Laag has a habit of winning at big odds on occasion, although his last victory at Warragul in January was less of a shock for punters, as he started an $8 chance.

Meanwhile the trots return to Warragul this Monday, ahead of a further meeting on May 2.

Heats of the Ken Miller Memorial event will be staged.

Local trainers will be strongly represented in Monday's heats, all keen to qualify their horses for the final of the race run in honour of a great local trotting supporter.

Monday's meeting kicks off just after Noon.
