Paret Confirmed for Epsom

Friday, 10th August 2018

Chris Waller has confirmed that rejuvenated galloper Paret (Harbour Watch-Enduja, by Encosta de Lago) will be aimed at the Group 1 Epsom Handicap next month after posting his second successive win over 1400m at Rosehill on Saturday. Waller has always considered Paret to be a Group 1 calibre horse and is hoping he can now go on with it and make his mark in the $1 million Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick on 29 September. "The Epsom is the target," Waller told Sky Racing. "We have been concentrating on getting him to settle and he did that today." Waller added: "We'll look at the Bill Ritchie for him now, which is the same race Boban won before the Epsom. They are similar types of horses." The Gr3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) will be run at Randwick on 15 September.
