A full field of horses is expected to light up the Stawell Racing Club track on Friday for the annual Grampians Halls Gap Cup.
After a successful 2021 edition that saw Toolbar take out the feature event, organisers are hoping to see something similar for the 2022 edition.
On Tuesday, Stawell Racing Club's Rachel Samsonenko said that everything is "ready to go" for the annual event.

"We've got good nominations for the meeting, so we should have full fields.
"It should be a good day."
As of Tuesday, plenty of tickets were still available, with Samsonenko hopeful that more tickets would be purchased in the lead-up to the meeting.
"I think people will buy at the gates now," she said.
"We got more people than we expected last year, so hopefully, it will be the same.
"We've got functions and private bookings on and we've got kids' attractions. It will be a good family day."
According to Samsonenko, the Stawell Racing Club track was "in good order" three days out from the event.
However, there was some slight concern for rain.
As of Wednesday morning, there was a 60 percent chance of showers forecast for Stawell on Friday.
"We've just got to hope that it doesn't rain too much," she said.
IN OTHER NEWS:
"We'll see what happens."
Gates open at 11.30 am for the event, and all patrons must be able to prove that they are fully vaccinated.
The first race begins at 1.30pm.
