Trekking adds to last-race favourites' run

The James Cummings-trained Trekking has extended the winning streak of last-race favourites to eight.

Punters have again got the better of bookmakers as Trekking  kept Sydney's last-race favourite streak alive.

Backed into $2.80, the James Cummings -trained four-year-old loomed up alongside Isorich  before powering to the post to score by a half length in the final race at Randwick on Saturday.

It is the eighth-straight win for the favourite in the last race on Saturday in Sydney.

The Godolphin runner helped Sheikh Mohammed's global stable walk away with a Randwick double after Avilius  won the Group Three Kingston Town Stakes over 2000m.

"We've come home with a wet sail here," Godolphin representative Darren Beadman said.

"The Godolphin blue colours are giving the TAB an absolute hiding."

But it wasn't easy as Right and Wrong ($9) and third-placed Single Bullet  ($6) kicked late.

"He did it the tough way," Beadman said.

"There was a few tense moments there down the side at three deep no cover. (Jockey) Kerrin Mcevoy  was doing his utmost best to try and get in.

"But he kept him in a nice rhythm and back on top of the ground today."

McEvoy chalked up a double of his own after an earlier win aboard Miss Fabulass  in the Group Two Tea Rose Stakes.
