Promising stayer Flying Home has recovered from a poor run on a hard track to be back on course for the winter carnival.

Flying Home was among the favourites when he ran 10 lengths last in the Tattersalls Members Cup (1600m) at Eagle Farm on March 1.

However, Flying Home was just one of several well fancied horses to jar up on the track that day.

Trainer Barry Baldwin gave Flying Home an easy time for a couple of weeks and has had him back in solid work for nearly a month.

Flying Home will return to Eagle Farm on Saturday to run in the Winning Edge Trophies Quality (1600m).

“He was never out of the stable but we had to go easy on him for a few weeks,” Baldwin said.

“Since then we have done a bit with him and I am sure he is right to run a bit of a race on Saturday.”

“(Jockey) Chris Munce has stayed with him and Chris has always had an opinion of him”.

The race will be the basis for Flying Home to chase features such as the Ipswich Cup (2100m) and Caloundra Cup (2400m).

“I think he is just a bit below them in races like the Brisbane Cup but we will see how he goes,” Baldwin said.

Flying Home will face a field handy of gallopers including Sydney mare Angel of Mercy who will be ridden by Damian Browne.

Her trainer Gerald Ryan has decided to skip the rest of the Sydney carnival with Angel of Mercy who was third at her last start to Catkins in the Group Two Emancipation Stakes at Rosehill.

Angel of Mercy is likely to push on for the fillies and mares races in the Brisbane winter.

Meanwhile, apprentice Ruby Ride has been rewarded for her recent hat-trick of wins aboard Kiss Me Deadly by retaining the mount in the non claiming Quality.

Trainer Matt Kropp said Ride knew exactly how to get the best out of the gelding and deserved to continue the association.
