SATURDAY NOVEMBER 28 2020 HORSE RACING 53 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA FOR TREKKING third after hitting the front and only being run down late on an unsuitable heavy track. Parnham will instruct his jockey, son Brad, to ride the race as though Condor Heroes (rating of 81) isnt in the field. People can dream but that horse will be running on empty late in the race, Parnham said. It is not ideal as we will maybe have to do some chasing, but we have to take the approach that that horse isnt in the race and just run our own race, he said. I have put winkers on Indian Pacific as I was looking for a little extra edge but I thought blinkers might make him race a bit too hard. So I have taken the softer approach with a change of gear. I am sure he is a very good horse. I think he could be very competitive in some very nice sprint races in Melbourne in the autumn. But we are just focusing on Saturday at the moment. While Parnham believes Indian Pacific will take some tossing, he said Trekking looks as if he has improved greatly since arriving in Perth. Trekking, who beat Excellent Dream in a 1000m trial at Belmont this week, last raced when finishing second in the Manikato Stakes behind last years Winterbottom Stakes winner Hey Doc. He (Trekking) has cer tainly improved since he has arrived here, Parnham said. I thought when he arrived (from Melbourne) he looked a little light. He is very well trained and he is a genuine Group 1 horse. Six-year-old Trekking has won 10 races from 32 starts for more than $5m in prizemoney while Indian Pacifics six wins have netted $236,000. TODAY marks the fork in the road for the Kris Lees-trained Evalina, who will make an autumn audition in the Group 3 Festival Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill. Evalina hasnt won in her five runs this preparation but most of her form has been top notch. A 2-length defeat to Sweet Deal started off the campaign in the Toy Show Quality, she finished within 1 lengths of Subpoenaed in the Golden Pendant, 1 lengths of Haut Brion Her in the Sheraco Stakes and she finished 2 lengths behind Sweet Deal in The Hunter. In The Hunter, Evalina closed off hard after being held up at a vital stage in the straight and gave her trainer the encouragement to try her up in a middle-distance trip. She ran second in two 1400m starts at three, one was the Reginald Allen, Lees said. I tried her once over this trip later in that season and she wasnt beaten too far. Shes a more mature and a stronger mare now so I think the time is right to try again. Lees said if Evalina shows she is capable of running the trip it will allow a rethink heading into the new year. Bookmakers have priced Evalina an $18 chance for todays assignment and the daughter of I Am Invincible will be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy. It looks a suitable race to try her up in trip, Lees said. Shes down in the weight. Likely to just need a bit of luck early to find a spot. Shes been running through the line in a manner that would suggest she will run the trip but until they do you are never sure. Big hopes that mare can go the distance CLINTON PAYNE *Open to all participants, but non-Australian residents and other entrants described in the full conditions may be ineligible to win prizes.
