Could Sara Ryan become the youngest trainer to take home the coveted Carlton Wyong Gold Cup today?

The 29-year-old has two chances to do just that when she saddles up The Mediterranean, currently $17 and Parry Sound $34.

Ryan gives both a good chance of winning the $240k race, Irish import The Mediterranean resuming from a spell following a strong autumn/winter campaign, where he was placed third in the Listed Winter Cup at Rosehill followed by a fourth in the G3 Tatts Cup at Eagle Farm.

Stablemate Parry Sound resumed in the Rowley Mile at Hawkesbury impressing Ryan with his sectionals. The eight-year-old is a previous G3 winner over 2000m and has been placed a number of times at Listed level.

"I am really happy with both of them," Ryan said. "Regan Bayliss rode them work for me on Tuesday and he was really pleased, particularly with Parry Sound.

"To win a Wyong Cup would mean so much to me. It would be so good to keep the Cup local."

Newcastle based Kris Lees and Mark Minervini have the two favourites, Hosier from Minervini's stable currently at $4.60 chance, while Lees' Kalapour is $5.50.

Brett Lazzarini is the only other Provincial trainer with a runner in the feature with Wild Chap ($41) giving Wyong based apprentice Anna Rope her biggest race ride to date.

Brad Widdup's Short Shorts ($7) and Damien Lane's Zorocat ($41) represent our Provincial trainers in the $200k Listed Mona Lisa.
