Brasch will saddle up a runner in each of the five races to be contested at the meeting, which promises to be a much more low-key event compared to Saturday’s bumper Derby Day program.
Among the quintet will be last-start Wellington winner Juste Heaven Sent, which steps back up to the mile when it runs in the Domain-Daily Liberal Class 1 and Maiden Plate (1600m).
The four-year-old broke her maiden status with a tough win over 1400m at Wellington last Monday and Brasch believed she would be suited to today’s race.
“She came through that win in good order and Greg (Ryan) told me it would be a good race for her as she still has a lot to learn,” Brasch said.
“She’s had one go at the mile before and was a bit unlucky so I have no worries about her getting the trip and it’s not a strong race so hopefully she can win again.”
Kacie Chater will ride Juste Heaven Sent while the other four mounts will be split between Mathew Cahill and Justin Stanley, who will ride Mind You in the Daily Liberal Cup Benchmark 50 Handicap (1200m).
Cahill will be aboard first-starter Divapar in the opening event, Aleco’s Girl in race two and last-start winner Delaval in the fourth race on the program.
“I’ve been lucky that with Greg riding at Muswellbrook I’ve been able to get good riders,” Brasch said.
“Kacie is a good rider who probably doesn’t get the chances she deserves and I think Justin will be good on Mind You because he has a big weight and needs a strong rider.
“Mathew is one of the best jockeys going around and he is on board the other three so I go to the races confident we can have some success.”
