He will ride Frost Dodger (Ontrak Engineering Class 2 Handicap, 1800m) and Tigerish (Hawkesbury Race Club Motel Class 2 Handicap, 1400m) - the same two horses he partnered at the Taree Cup carnival opener on August 22.

But he told Remlaps Jewel's managing part-owner Wayne Palmer that he would keep an eye on the Hawkesbury event in case nominations fell short and were extended. And that is exactly what happened.
