Inter Dominion winner Beautide will return to the scene of his biggest career victories when he steps out at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night. The son of Bettors Delight last raced on March 2 and despite having a week in the paddock to recover, trainer/driver James Rattray is expecting a big performance.

"I gave him seven days to get over the Inter Dominion, he really appreciated the break and put on a little bit of weight so all things are heading in the right direction with the Len Smith Mile at the end of the month," Rattray said.

"Ideally I would have liked to have given him a trial but because the track has been shut undergoing renovations, I've had to do all the work with him at home but I'm still expecting a big performance from him this Saturday night."

Saturday's event has attracted the first three placegetters from the Inter Dominion Grand Final with Seel N Print and For A Reason nominated to compete.

"It is a nice race for Beautide but the plan is to only give him this one hit-out before the Len Smith Mile, it should tighten him up nicely and have him ready."

"After the Len Smith Mile I'm thinking I will give him another short break and get him ready for races like the Miracle Mile so at this stage I'm ruling out going to Queensland."

Rattray was happy to see Pachacuti return to the winners' list at Hobart on the weekend and confirmed the four year old pacer will be returning to his stable later in the season.

"That win on Sunday night would have done him the world of good, he just needed that for his confidence, he has the four year old Sires Stakes in Tasmania and also the Easter Cup but he will then come back here to Sydney."

"Another horse will be joining him on the trip up here too, a horse called Devendra, he has won a few cups down there."
