Unbeaten two-year-old Turk Warrior is a hot favourite to emulate his mother Ehor by winning Sunday's $100,000 Elwick Stakes.
Ehor won both the Elwick Stakes and Gold Sovereign Stakes in 2007 before finishing fourth in a listed race at Caulfield.
The Glenn Stevenson-trained Turk Warrior has raced only once for a three-length win in the Tony Carrick Vase at Elwick in November.
Bookmakers were obviously impressed because he opened at $1.90 for Sunday's race with tab.com.au before easing marginally to $1.95.
Stevenson thinks that price is about right.
"I thought he'd be about $2," the trainer said.
"He looks suited drawn out in barrier 6 because he's a big-striding horse and needs a bit of room.
"I'm expecting Neutralize to set a fast pace - they couldn't hold her at the trials the other day - so hopefully we can slot in.
"He will put himself there and should settle - he won't be far off them."
Stevenson said Turk Warrior still wasn't 100 per cent wound up.
"But I think he's a bit fitter than he was for his first start and I was pretty happy with his last bit of work on Wednesday morning," the trainer said.
"It's a bit hard to gauge his opposition.
"Miss Charlie Brown is obviously a nice horse and will be suited by the big open straight at Elwick.
"But I don't know what she's been beating and she has to go to Hobart for the first time.
"It's probably to our advantage that we've already been there."
Stevenson said one of Turk Warrior's biggest assets was his attitude.
"No matter what I've worked him with, he wants to stay in front of them - he just keeps sticking his head out," the trainer said.
"He's a smart horse - very intelligent."
Ehor never won another race after capturing the two-year-old feature double but she has been a handy broodmare producing the winners Lustica, Carnelian Crystal, Morgatoche and Sheorta.
Lustica, bought by Star Thoroughbreds, was also a smart two-year-old, winning the Tasmanian Magic Millions in 2014.
Unbeaten filly Hela faces her toughest test to date in Sunday's $50,000 Thousand Guineas.
The Scott Brunton-trained youngster steps out to 1600m for the first time but has been impressive winning all three starts over shorter distances.
Vivilici, who beat the males in the 3YO Trophy at Mowbray in early December, looks the obvious danger back against her own sex.
Assaranca, Mystical Beauty, Thelma and Gee Gee Goldenlass are others likely to have support in one of the better editions of the race in recent years.
The $50,000 Summer Cup boasts arguably its best field ever with 2019 triple cups winner Eastender clashing with last year's Hobart Cup winner Toorak Affair and last season's weight-for-age king Mandela Effect who will be having his first start beyond 1600m.
The chances don't end there, with Super Swoop, Glass Warrior, Gee Gee Fiorente, White Cliffs and Shady Hustle all capable of figuring and imported stayers Exoteric and Captain Cook adding further interest to the weight-age-contest.
Mowbray has the No. 1 harness racing slot this weekend with an eight-race Sky 1 meeting on Sunday night.
But it's completely overshadowed by a Sky 2 meeting in Hobart the following night that has four $12,000 feature races.
Ryley Major and Ignatius clash in the Toreace Flying Mile with Star Chamber and Call Me Hector thrown in for good measure.
The other features are the New Norfolk Cup, Ark Meeker Memorial Matron Stakes and E C Plunkett Memorial.
The Launceston meeting has two heats of the Harry Holgate Memorial, a race restricted to horses with no more than four lifetime wins.
It has a $12,000 final next Friday night.
Last-start winners Machbev and Rockandahardplace and the talented Kivik stand out in the first heat.
The second heat looks a more open contest, with the highest-rated runner, Kadar, coming off a good win in the 3YO Country Championship at Carrick but having to overcome a wide draw.
American Mac, Lorimermajor, Roosevelt and El Jays Blu are among the other chances.
