In-form Wagga apprentice jockey Josh Richards hopes to continue his good run at Narrandera's Cup meeting on Sunday.
Richards has been flying in the saddle in recent weeks with five wins from his last 20 rides.
In the past three weeks alone, he has ridden two winners at odds of 60-1.
Richards has seven rides at Narrandera's bumper nine-race Cup meeting on Sunday, including the highly-fancied Albury galloper Squidensquizz in the feature race.
Richards rode Squidensquizz to victory at Corowa last start and is happy to partner the Ron Stubbs-trained gelding in the $32,000 Leeton Toyota Narrandera Cup (1600m).
"I'm pretty happy. I've had a look at it and he should be a good ride in the race. He looks like he'll be right there," Richards said.
"Last start was probably the best he's felt. He had a good draw, got the perfect run in the race and travelled the whole way. It was pretty much sit, wait and go."
Richards' 1.5 kilogram claim helps Squidensquizz get into the Cup with 58.5kg from barrier two.
"He should get a good run," Richards said.
"He should handle the track and should be right there at the end."
Squidensquizz meets a full, competitive field in the Cup. Trevor Sutherland has a strong representation with My Maher and Gentleman Max both lining up.
Former Queensland mare Amthaal will have her second start for Goulburn trainer Mark Gee, and her chances will be aided by the booking of top jockey Blaike McDougall.
Among other Richards other rides at Narrandera are Thunder Road in the Benchmark 66 Handicap (2100m), Diamonds For Alice in the Benchmark 66 Handicap (1000m) and Kruanui in the Benchmark 58 Handicap (1400m).
Richards has been happy with his recent results.
"I've been really happy with the last couple of months," he said.
"I've been getting to a few more meetings and getting on horses that have been going alright for me.
"I've been getting good support from plenty of trainers and getting on a few of the right horses. It gives you a boost of confidence."
Richards only has seven winners to go before he outrides his country claim.
