Caulfield Cup winner "jumping out of his skin"


Classy stayer Boom Time is set to resume in Saturday's Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400 metres) at Caulfield, and despite being the outsider of the field, jockey Cory Parish is expecting a bold run.

The Lindsay Park-trained seven-year-old was a shock winner of the G1 Caulfield Cup in 2017, scoring at odds of 50-1.

Boom Time is yet to win in eight first-up assignments and hasn't tasted victory under 1600 metres.

He also has top weight of 60kg to contend with.

"I rode him in a jump out at the farm a couple of weeks ago and he felt great. He's jumping out of his skin," Parish said.

"They might be too sharp for him first-up over 1400m, but he does have that bit of dash and he is the class horse of the field.

"He's got a nice draw, so I hopefully I can have him in a good position and he can finish off, then come on from the run."

Boom Time is a $31 outsider with, which has Manolo Blahniq favourite at $3.30 ahead of Naantali at $3.70.

Lindsay Park also has Fastnet Tempest ($14) in the race, with Craig Williams down to ride.
