Paret 11 August

Comparisons with Boban might be unfair on the up and coming Paret but the four-year-old continues to rise through the grades and premier trainer Chris Waller considers him as another Epsom winner.

Paret stormed down the outside to take final event at Saturday’s Rosehill meeting and will head to the Tramway Stakes or Bill Ritchie Handicap, which carry an exemption from ballot to the big spring mile. Waller admitted there was a bit of Boban, which won the Bill Ritchie, Epsom and what is now know as the Kennedy Mile at Flemington, about Paret.

“There is, especially the way he races,” he said. Boban won five-time group 1s, including an unbeaten spring as a four-year-old. – Chris Roots, Sydney Morning Herald
