TRAINER Brent Albuino of Muchea has entered Riasc in the $100,000 Mumm Champagne-Crystal Slipper Stakes (1100m)  at Ascot today.

Jockey Chris Parnham has been booked to ride Riasc, who has drawn barrier four.

About mid-morning of Winterbottom Stakes Day Riasc was third favourite.

Albuino, who trains for the Gingin-based Gold Front Racing, also has Danaura starting from barrier one in the JJ Richards & Sons Handicap (1200m).

In late October Albuino completed the Race the Wild Coast where participants have a team of three horses and race over 350km on the remote east coast of South Africa.

Lancelin trainer Ashley Maley has Red Publisher starting from barrier nine.

Muchea trainer Alan Mathews has Django with jockey Patrick Carbery and Pounamu with visiting jockey Damien Oliver running in the Amelia Park Lamb Handicap (1600m).

In the Avenue Q Handicap (1500m) Ellie Cockram has been booked to ride the Mathews-trained Preselection, who has drawn barrier five in a field of 11.

On Railway Stakes Day trainer Cliff Green of Gingin notched up another second with Mosseratti in the Mumm Champagne Handicap (1500m) – the bay gelding also ran second a fortnight ago in a 1400m race at Ascot.

Green said he and connections were still to decide on what was next for Mosseratti.

He said there were no 1600m or 1800m races available for the gelding and he thought the jump from 1500m to 2100m might be too much so he might be sent for a spell.
