Cahill hopes to finish with another winThursday 20 June 2019
In form jockey Michael Cahill hopes he can finish his winter carnival with a win on Tactical Advantage in the Group Three Healy Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
Cahill has been the form jockey of the carnival winning six feature races including the Group One Doomben 10,000 and Group One Kingsford Smith Cup on The Bostonian.
He will miss the final day of the Queensland winter carnival at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday week.
"We are taking advantage of the school holidays to book an overseas holiday after this Saturday," Cahill said.
"It is a pity because I could have had some good rides but that is just the way things fell."
The Kris Lees trained Tactical Advantage is one of Cahill's better rides in a full book of nine rides for eight different trainers at Eagle Farm.
"He looks a nice ride and he ran a good race in the Doomben 10,000 and he was poorly drawn last start. From barrier six he should get a better run, "Cahill said.
"It will be my last ride for the carnival and it would be nice to end a big carnival with a winner."
He will also ride Spright in the Group One Tatt's Tiara.
"Her fourth on the Stradbroke was very good so she looks a nice ride," Cahill added.
