7/12/2018 Khartoum after Pakenham Cup redemption

Trainer Pat Carey is hoping Khartoum (Helenus) can gain redemption in tomorrow's Pakenham Cup (Listed, 2500m), having been narrowly defeated in last year's renewal by Like A Carousel (Helike). "He ran well in the race last year, when beaten a head, but I think this year's race might be a stronger race," Carey said. "But I'm very happy with the way the horse is going and he's found form at the right time and I'm sure he'd be a lightweight chance in the race. He looks well, he's going well and he's in winning form, so we'll see how the race pans out for him."
