The Illawarra's top trainers will embark on another South Coast raid on Friday, with the Narooma Cup being run in Moruya.

Robert and Luke Price will enter Power Lift in the Narooma Town Plate, while stablemates Spectre and Collectively will contest the 1640 metre feature race.

Theresa Bateup's Jarrett will aim for back-to-back Cup victories after his win in the Merimbula Jazz Cup, while OId Man's Angel is currently listed as an emergency.

Jarrett had a tough run on the same track in April's Moruya Cup and the trainer is confident he can vie for victory with a bit of luck on Friday.

"Jarrett's one of those horses I love having in the stable," Bateup said. "He was super last start, that was one of his best wins over the mile.

"He ran a nice race in the Moruya Cup over 1400m, he drew a shocking barrier, sat midfield, wide but with cover. With a smaller field on Friday and a better barrier, I think he'll run out the mile strongly."
