Bridget Grylls has returned home with a clear career goal in mind.

“I felt the time was right to come back and I’d love to get on some fast horses and win a black type race here,” she said.

Grylls headed across the Tasman during the 2013-14 season and rode 138 winners during her spell in Queensland.

“I enjoyed it there and got a lot of support from some good trainers, it was a great experience and I’m a better rider now,” she said.

Grylls rode 67 New Zealand winners before her departure, beginning her apprenticeship at Awapuni with Lisa Latta before transferring to the Matamata stable of Ken and Bev Kelso.

She has returned to her home town of Te Awamutu, but is considering a future move to Cambridge.

Grylls, whose brother Craig is currently enjoying a successful stint in Singapore, will resume her New Zealand career at Ruakaka on Saturday where she has five rides.

“I think Air Centre might be my best, he’s drawn well and his form is pretty good,” she said.

Trained by Moira and Kieran Murdoch, Air Centre goes into the Mountfield Quarry Handicap (1200m) off the back of placings at Te Awamutu, Avondale and at the last Ruakaka meeting earlier this month.

Grylls will also be aboard stablemate Trouble (Almanzor at Cambridge Stud 900m), Noodles (ITM/GIB Whangarei Gold Cup Day 14 July 1200m), Take It Out (Tanalised 1600m) and Cosmic Storm (Northpine Timber Beams and Posts 2100m). – NZ Racing Desk.
