There could be a return to form for Trekking when he tackles the William Reid Stakes on Friday at Moonee Valley as he is reunited with jockey Damien Oliver.
The Godolphin dual Group 1 winner missed the start on his first-up outing in the Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap at Flemington earlier this month and connections will hope he can make amends in tomorrow's Group 1 contest, for which he is a 25/1 chance.
"I haven't ridden him since I rode him first up where he kind of bombed the start and he had a big weight, so it was kind of an unsuitable race but a run he kind of needed to have to go into this race second up," Oliver told Racing.com.
The 49-year-old rider will again be in the saddle tomorrow and hopes a return to the track can prove a positive.
"On his best form, he's run well at The Valley before, he can run well," Oliver added.
"Moonee Valley's one of those courses that is a bit of a horses-for-courses type of track, and the fact that he's gone there and run well before certainly gives you some confidence.
"On his best day he can (win), for sure … but he's a horse that probably likes a bit of pace in his races and that will suit him if there is."
