Knox heads the breakaway roping standings from Jorja Iker, of Alton Downs, and Moree rider Wendy Caban, the most successful cowgirl in the past decade in the APRA. 

There are 412 nominations for Cloncurry, one of only four two-day rodeos in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association.

The barrel race will be one of the most hotly contested events with 46 nominations at Cloncurry. There are 43 nominations for the breakaway roping.
