In terms of class however, a Sista Act has previously come up against the likes of Cellargirl, Houtzen, Bring It Home Pop and Shogun Sun, now getting a chance to strut her stuff at the Friday provincials.
Sista Act has drawn barrier 2 in race 5 on the card with Grace Willoughby to ride. She is yet to win over further than 1000 however should go straight to the front from a soft draw and will take catching.
