Well-bred filly Everything’s Sweet will be looking to break her maiden status in the second event of the eight-race card, the Avon Valley Contractors Maiden (1100m).

Everything’s Sweet will be ridden by Peter Hall and looks to be suited jumping from barrier two in today’s eight-horse field as well as having the addition of blinkers.
