Rory Hutchings

Former champion apprentice Rory Hutchings will ride the Lance O’Sullivan and Andrew Scott-trained The Mayor in Saturday’s Group 1 Vodafone New Zealand Derby (2400m).

“He knows his way around Ellerslie and he knows his form so we’re happy to have him on,” Scott said. “He’s a Group One-winning jockey.”

A two-time winner from four starts, The Mayor finished sixth in the Group 2 Avondale Guineas (2100m) at his most recent appearance.
