You could do worse than looking to reigning Orange Gold Cup champion Letter to Juliette in Friday's main event at Towac Park, and there's a real argument to look no further than another from Garry White's stable in the meet's second-biggest race too.
White's gun, short-distance specialist And So It Goes returns from a two-month spell in the $35,000 Central West Trailers Cup Day Showcase Sprint (1000 metres) and considering the mare's first-up form and history at the track, she looks every bit the leading chance.
The five-year-old has two wins and a third finish from five first-up starts and formed a genuine love affair with the Towac Park track, having saluted twice from her three starts at Orange and finished third in the other.
Granted the last start she had at Racing Orange's home was more than 12 months ago but since then White's largely tested her in the city and she's shown more than enough to suggest she could, potentially, keep her stunning record intact at Towac on Friday.
Drawing barrier five is a help and so is having celebrated hoop Mathew Cahill on board, with the 56kg she'll lug not expected to be an issue either.
Top weight Latin Boy, trained by Richard Freedman, will no doubt be a contender too while Friday's second-main event will also feature the return of Orange trainer Alison Smith's Absolute Ripper.
The 18-start mare hasn't run since coming third at Warwick Farm in early December last year, and also has an outstanding record at her home track and has always been nigh on unstoppable over the 1000-metre journey.
She's saluted five times from her 10 starts over the distance, finished second on one other occasion and picked up that Warwick Farm third finish as well.
Gary Portelli's Showgals, which won last year's Silver Apple at the corresponding meeting, is in the field too while Clint Lundholm's Any Blinkin' Day and Brett Thompson's Sugar Dance both have plenty of runs on the board as well.
Gates open at Towac Park at noon, and the Central West Trailers Cup Day Showcase Sprint jumps at 4.03pm, right before the $65,000 main event.
