Jockey Jim Cassidy has declared himself fit to ride and will take his mounts at Randwick’s Super Saturday meeting today.

Cassidy limped off Canterbury racecourse on Wednesday after his mount Nissile jammed his leg up against the side of the barriers at the start of race 5 and was treated on course before heading home.

“I’ll be right for Saturday, I’ve got to be,” Cassidy said as he limped off the course.

“My whole foot got twisted as I was coming out of the barriers. But I’ll be right.”

The top jockey is down to ride Lightinthenite in the Group 1 $500,000 The Star Epsom (1600m) for John O’Shea and has picked up the ride on Kelinni for Chris Waller in the Group 1 $400,000 McGrath Estate Agents Metropolitan (2400m).

Lightinthenite is a $14 lightweight chance in the Epsom coming off a first-up second to Rolling Pin in the Group 3 $150,000 Patinack Farm Cameron Handicap (1500m) at Newcastle on September 19.

While Kelinni is well in the market at $7.50 in the Metropolitan after Waller decided to back up the five year old following a hard run last week at Rosehill in taking out the Group 3 $125,000 Alea Actuarial Consulting Colin Stephen Quality (2400m).

“They are both live lightweight chances and in these big races you always want a bit of luck,” Cassidy said.

“These are the days when you want to come out and fire up. That’s what it’s all about.”

Gai Waterhouse will saddle up the favourite in both the Epsom and the Metropolitan with Fat Al ($4.40) the top pick for the feature ‘Mile’ and English import Glencadam Gold ($3.40) the firm favourite for the 2400m Group 1.
