“We had a phone call during the week and I spoke to Dave (Ellis, Te Akau Principal) and he said to stick to our plan,” trainer Jamie Richards said.

“From our perspective we would start $15, $18, $20 in an Everest, where we are going to start probably close to favourite in an Invitation and against her own sex, and out to 1400m I think certainly suits her.

“We will be sticking to our plan and it is a race we are looking forward to in two weeks time.”

Entriviere is currently a $3.50 favourite for The Invitation.

Entriviere hasn’t finished outside of the money in all her nine starts, winning six and placing in three.

The five-year-old daughter of Tavistock on first-up in Australia last month in the Gr.2 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) before running third in the Gr.2 Golden Pendant (1400m), and has subsequently finished runner-up to Classique Legend in a 1050m trial at Randwick last week.
