On Thursday in northern New South Wales, two regional finals were run and won, as we saw the first batch of qualifiers who will head to for the semi-finals on September 16.

Trainer Melanie Mabbot continued her outstanding run of form in 2022, with Muffler producing a gutsy display to salute in the Gunnedah regional final.

Turning from home, she fought off late charges from pre-race favourite Turbo Cash and to salute by 0.13 lengths in 30.37. It was her third win from her last five outings, having now taken her career victory total to seven from 19 appearances.

Last night's NSW Sprint Final winner, Simply Limelight, will automatically gain a semi-final spot, along with the Sprint Championship winner to be determined on August 27, 2022.
