Veteran Longford trainer David Crosswell has three good chances to take out his second Illingworth Classic final at Mowbray on Monday night.
His Launceston Cup placegetter Quick Joey Small is a marginal favourite at $3.10 with Sportsbet, just shading the Nicholas Howard-trained Don't Start Now at $3.20.
Crosswell has two handy back-up runners in Vintage Fame who is quoted at $4.60 and Highland Wonder, a $9 chance.
The trainer previously won the final with I'm A Fencer who scored by more than six lengths in 2011.
Quick Joey Small ran down Langley Roo to win his heat by a half-length in 30.05 seconds.
There wasn't much between the times recorded by the three heats winners, with My Bro Joe recording 29.91 and Don't Start Now 30.06.
However Quick Joey Small boasts a career-best time of 29.38 which is clearly the best of the eight finalists.
The son of Aston Dee Bee and She's All Class has won five of his 11 starts at the track and distance.
He will jump from box 8 for the first time at Mowbray, with his previous wins coming from box 1 (twice), box 4 (twice) and box 6.
The Ted Medhurst-trained Always Baroque, who's had seven starts at the track for one win and six seconds, has drawn the red box for the first time at Mowbray.
His lone win at the track came from box 2.
Don't Star Now is also yet to miss a place over the 515m course.
