Young Bathurst horsewoman McKayler Barnes will head to the track tonight with her pride and joy pacer Kingston Shannon. 

Barnes will be hoping for success with six-year-old in a heat of the Regional Championships at Bathurst to secure a spot in the $100,000 final on May 18. 

Kingston Shannon was Barnes’ last winner as a trainer when the pair was successful at Dubbo in January. 

That victory was the last leg of a hat-trick for Kingston Shannon whom Barnes owns. 

Barnes will head to her local track tonight with 70 wins to her credit as a driver. 

Barnes’ only winner in the sulky this year has Kingston Shannon. 

There are four heats of the Regional Championships tonight.

The iForm best bets for tonight:

Bathurst best bet 

Race 6: Iamajoyride (1)

Far from disgraced in decent company on Saturday Night and looks the testing material.

Bathurst next best 

Race 2: Valenteeno (3) 

Can be prominent in a tough bout with stronger form than it appears.

Play the exotics

Race 5: 4-3-1

Race 6: 1-2

Race 7: 10-8-9

Race 8: 5-4-8-10
