Pomelo will look to secure back-to-back berths in the Provincial Championships final when Gwenda Markwell sends her star mare to Gosford for the third qualifier on Saturday.

The talented five-year-old started favourite in the decider last year after earlier blitzing her rivals in the same qualifier, which had to be moved to Royal Randwick due to a heavy track.

The stable confirmed to The Punt plans to accept with Pomelo for 1200m heat. 

Pomelo is currently rated an $11 chance with the TAB to take out the final, with Wyong winner Just Dreaming holding favouritism at $4.60. 

Pomelo is yet to have a run this preparation, but was given a hit-out at the trials at Warwick Farm on March 5.

Acceptances for the Gosford qualifier will be confirmed on Thursday morning.

Connections will have a further two opportunities to qualify for the final following the Gosford heat. Kembla Grange will be staged the following weekend, with Newcastle on March 31.
