Coming off a career best season trainer Jarrod Alchin will be hoping to add the Golden Guitar Final to his list of credits. 

Alchin has a three-pronged attack in the $40,800 Group 3 feature at Tamworth tonight. 

Alchin trained 59 winners last year and took a backseat with his driving, however, obtained four winners in the sulky. 

Tonight he will jump back in the gig, electing to drive heat winner Justa Little Bit that has drawn outside the front row in barrier six. 

Alchin’s other two starters, Delightful Dude and Aqua Sancta, have both drawn outside the second row after winning their respective heats. 

Last season’s top New South Wales driver Cameron Hart will handle Delightful Dude and Aqua Sancta will be driven by Will Rixon. 

Fellow Sydney reinsman Robert Morris will be out to defend his title in the Golden Guitar with Boyzhavtime. 

Morris won last year’s feature with The Choreographer.

The iForm best bets for today:

Tamworth best bet

Race 5: Delightful Dude (10)

Totally owned his heat and Cameron Hart chooses him over two stable mates and he can take out the feature.

Tamworth next best

Race 4: Wotnow Swanee (9)

Ran on well in his heat and although he will be back, there might be enough power on here for him to get over them late.

Around the tracks

Wagga best bet

Race 4: Holy Camp Caprhyse (2)

Has come back from a spell in excellent form and is drawn to win here.

Dubbo best bet

Race 2: Annie Richter (2) 

Won well two starts ago and this looks her grade again.

Play the exotics

The Tamworth quaddie

Race 5: 10,11,9

Race 6: 7,8,5,6

Race 7: 7,9,2,6

Race 8: 3,10,4
