Ruby searching for return win aboard August Bishop

STABLE apprentice Ruby Ride will be hoping to strike early in her return to the saddle when she teams with August Bishop at Clifford Park on Saturday.

Ride has been out of action nursing a facial injury suffered at trackwork about eight weeks ago and she resumes riding at Ipswich tomorrow aboard Auchenflower for her master Kevin Kemp.

The pair team again on Saturday with August Bishop who resumes against a smart field in the XXXX Gold Benchmark 80 Handicap (1050m).

The Red Dazzler four-year-old notched back-to-back Clifford Park wins in July but hasn't started since failing at Eagle Farm in August.

His opposition tomorrow includes Weetwood placegetter Reilly Blue and track specialist Silver Scholar who resumes from an 11-month spell this week for trainer Chris McAppion.

Kemp opted not to trial August Bishop ahead of his return.

"This is a good race but our horse has come back well," Kemp said.

"We opted not to trial him going into this race first up and whether that decision is right or wrong we'll probably find out at about the 200 metres on Saturday.

"In his favour is a nice pull in the weights and it would be great to see him race well for Ruby after her enforced break."
