Four-time Singapore champion jockey Vlad Duric is set to make his return to Pakenham tonight

Four-time Singapore champion jockey Vlad Duric is set to make his return to the weighing room at Pakenham tonight. Duric is back in Australia for good after health issues have forced him to remain out of the saddle since August last year. Duric will ride Jesta Dreama (Bon Hoffa) for Wendy Kelly in the Vinny Guiliana Handicap (1600m).
 “I would have liked another couple of weeks, but Wendy and Kevin called with one at 61.5 kilos and I thought I can manage that one alright,” Duric said. “He’s a nice old horse to get me going again after six months out. I’m looking forward to kicking off at home, on that big, beautiful track at Pakenham. I’ll have a few rides here and there and slowly get my fitness back.”
