In­vader, Pariah step out

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

WE’RE not even half­way through win­ter but po­ten­tial spring stars are al­ready crawl­ing out of the wood­work with sev­eral high- pro­file horses set to step out at the Rand­wick tri­als to­day.

Last week it was three- time Group 1 win­ner Le Ro­main who made his first public ap­pear­ance of the win­ter at the Wy­ong tri­als and now Sires’ Pro­duce Stakes win­ner In­vader and Blue Di­a­mond run­ner- up Pariah will trial at Rand­wick to­day.

Co- trainer Paul Snow­den said both ris­ing three- yearolds will just have an easy hit out to­day.

“That’s just the next stage of their fit­ness and they’re only 740m tri­als,” he said. “Once they jump there is only three fur­longs left in the trial so it’s a stage they’re at and they’re ready to go to the tri­als and have a bit of a blow out so to speak and it’s all about get­ting their fit­ness lev­els up.

“They will have a more se­ri­ous trial in 10 days or two weeks af­ter this one.”

Snow­den said both horses had de­vel­oped since the au­tumn.

Pariah and In­vader will be joined at the Rand­wick tri­als to­day by Wash­ing­ton Heights, who was Group 3 placed as a two and three- year- old in Aus­tralia be­fore leav­ing for Hong Kong where he won twice from four starts over there.
