The Press - - Racing -

An­drew Camp­bell and Johnathan Parkes look likely to con­tinue their win­ning as­so­ci­a­tion to­day. The Opaki trainer and the Wan­ganui jockey have en­joyed a hot run in re­cent weeks with Opunake Cup suc­cess with Longchamp fol­low­ing con­sec­u­tive wins with the un­beaten young­ster Getty at Tren­tham and Te Rapa. At the meet­ing moved from Otaki to Awa­puni, they will com­bine with Wal­dorf who shapes as the horse to beat in the Ry­der Stakes. ‘‘I’m pretty con­fi­dent about his chances,‘‘ said Parkes, who rode race ri­vals Nu­clear Fu­sion and Veuve Clic­quot at their last starts. ‘‘He’s a smart horse and he should go very close.‘‘
