|Nowra Showcase Cup Day
|Shoalhaven City Turf Club – 96 Albatross Rd, South Nowra NSW 2541
|Sunday, December 10, 2023
Country racing heads to Nowra on Sunday afternoon for the annual Nowra Showcase Cup (1600m) meeting. The rail is in the true position for the entire circuit, and with scorching hot days forecast in the lead-up, the surface should be improving into the Good range. The opening race is scheduled for 1:29pm local time.
Nowra Showcase Cup Tip: Aristonous
Some six of the 12 runners engaged in the Nowra Showcase Cup are dual-accepted for races across the weekend, but if connections elect to head this way, Aristonous should prove hard to beat. The son of Saonois produced back-to-back wins in his first Australian preparation and now returns from a 127-day spell. Watch for Heavelon van der Hoven to jag back to the rear of the field before unleashing Aristonous down the centre of the course.

Best Bet at Nowra: Pretty Sassy
Pretty Sassy impressed with an eye-catching jump-out at Kembla Grange on November 27 and seems to find a very winnable race on debut. The Joseph Ible-trained filly trucked along under her own steam for Louise Day before dispatching her rivals by a length. She will need to replicate what she did when she faces race-day conditions for the first time; however, based on the eye and the clock, Pretty Sassy could be a talented type.
Race 1 – #6 Pretty Sassy (2)
3yo Filly | T: Joseph Ible | J: Louise Day (55.5kg)

Next Best at Nowra: Line Of Law
Line Of Law resumed on a bottomless track at Orange on November 24 and did a credible job to run second considering the conditions. He got back in the small field in a slowly run race, meaning the three-year-old filly never had a chance to show her explosive turn of foot. Getting back on top of the ground should be much more suitable, and with a positive steer from barrier 10, Line Of Law will be making strong inroads late.
Race 5 – #1 Line Of Law (10)
3yo Filly | T: Bjorn Baker | J: Robbie Downey (58kg)
