Winkers To Focus Penglai Pavilion

By Brad Gray

Penglai Pavilion and Polarisation will both line up in the rescheduled Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick on Saturday, with the former carrying winkers to help him “focus.”

"It is not questioning his genuineness, it is more a matter of helping him to focus. We tried them on him a couple of days ago and he reacted favourably," Appleby told the Godolphin website ahead of the $2m feature.

The Godolphin duo were both prominent in the finish of the half a dozen horses to complete the two mile course on April 8 over The Championships but Charlie Appleby has reported that all is in order ahead of the re-run.

"Both lost a minimal amount of weight, and they ate up well afterwards," Appleby said.

"(Assistant trainer) James Ferguson and the team on the ground in Sydney have been very happy with them, and we expect both to acquit themselves well on Saturday.

"If the 'on his game' Penglai Pavilion turns up, he has the class to go very close. Polarisation, on the other hand, wears his heart on his sleeve. He is tough and genuine, and he stays very well.”

Kerrin McEvoy and Corey Brown will resume their associations with Penglai Pavilion and Polarisation.
