Ahead of the first set of heats on Friday evening from Albion Park, the local industry is abuzz about the popular Inter Dominion being back in Queensland.
Sallis will be on track for the second set of heats on Tuesday of next week and is hopeful of having a runner in one of the support races on Grand Final night, on top of his Inter Regional Championship bid.
“There is nothing better than Inter Dominion and the old format, I like the old format of the heats,” Sallis said.
"I love that sort of thing leading into the Final, all the heats, that is old school.”
In-form trainer Peter Greig - who works his stable out of Peak Crossing - has three from his team set for the Marburg heat on Sunday.
The Group 1-winning Greig prepared a winning treble at Redcliffe’s Wednesday meeting of this week.
Ryan Veivers is another trainer with multiple runners in the heat at Marburg on Sunday.
Despite the back row draw, Sallis thinks Hey Mister Taylor can figure in the finish.
“The barrier might not be so bad on Sunday because there is a fair bit of speed on the front row, so hopefully they run along,” the veteran trainer said.
“He will finish off ok, like he normally does.
“There is a few horses in this race that have won a lot of races but are reasonably low rated. It is a handy field for sure.”
The Redcliffe and Albion Park heats will be contested early next week.
