Collett hops back on board in bid to turn around veteran’s form

In-form jockey Jason Collett knows he has a big job ahead to turn around the fortunes of Godolphin veteran Duca Valentinois when the pair reunite at Hawkesbury on Wednesday.

Three years ago Collett combined with the now nine-year-old to win the listed $150,000 Lander Toyota Ladies Day Cup (1600m) and hasn’t ridden the gelding since March 2018.

In the interim, Duca Valentinois won two more races, the latest in Brisbane in June last year, but he hasn’t been placed in nine starts since then and has failed to beat a horse home in his past two starts, including a 14-length defeat at Randwick on October 24.

Collett, who also won the Ladies Day Cup in 2018 on Pecans, said he had faith in the Godolphin machine to find a way to turn around the horse’s form.
