Greg Cave is hoping that his Rock 'N' Tales can cause an upset in the Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic at Pinjarra on Saturday.
The former New Zealand jump jockey has ambitions of landing his biggest prize yet as a trainer when he saddles the 30/1 chance on what will be just his second career start.
A son of Awesome Rock, Rock 'N' Tales finished off strongly to be fourth on his debut, a performance that has given Cave hope a shock could be on the cards in what he feels is a wide-open renewal.
"Shaun (O'Donnell, jockey) said it was a very good run as it wasn't really a race that suited him," Cave told The Races WA.
"It was a muddling-run race and from his gate (nine) he had to go back and ended up going three and four deep. But he still hit the line really good over 1200 metres and from that run it gives me a lot of confidence."
Cave's optimism is also boosted by the fact that Rock 'N' Tales has drawn far better this time around in barrier five.
"From the draw we have more than half a chance with a couple of the hot pots drawing out wider," he added. "We don't have to work as hard and can be just tucked away quietly behind them."
Shaun O'Donnell partnered the two-year-old on his debut start, but with the jockey currently away on holiday, Troy Turner will take the ride on Saturday.
