Riverina three-year-olds will be chasing Sydney riches in the Evolution final at Menangle on Saturday night.

MIA Breeders Plate winner Our Mach Jack, Some Waratah and Trunkey Tash all qualified at Junee last week for the $20,000 final.

Some Waratah, the well bred son of Lady Waratah, has been runner-up in his two starts to date.

It includes a second to Our Mach Jack last time out, but Junee trainer-driver Bruce Harpley is hopeful the Somebeachsomewhere gelding will be on his best behaviour this time around.

“He still hasn’t learnt anything yet so I’ve giving him a baptism of fire in a way against Menangle horses,” Harpley said.

“But it is a good series.

“He has plenty of brains so he will work it out and he’d never hung in ever before but last week he got on one rein going into the back the first time and that was the end of that.

“He was on one rein the whole way.”
