Suspended Rawiller Misses Mount on Cup Favourite

Prominent Sydney-based jockey Nash Rawiller will not ride Chris Waller’s star import My Kingdom Of Fife in the Doomben Cup after copping a suspension for careless riding at Randwick on Wednesday.

My Kingdom Of Fife

My Kingdom Of Fife will not be ridden by Nash Rawiller in the Doomben Cup

Rawiller enjoyed a quartet of wins at the Kensington track meet on Wednesday, but his success was marred due to an unplaced ride on the Gai Waterhouse-trained Life Of The Party.

Lightly-raced Choisir filly Life Of The Party started the $3.50 favourite in Kensington Race 6 yesterday, the $27,000 Clovelly Handicap (1400m), but only managed to finish eighth beaten five and a half lengths by More Than Royal ($10).

It was this ride that caught the attention of the stewards and would eventually see Rawiller’s hopes of riding My Kingdom Of Fife to a second Group 1 win in Brisbane dashed.

Racing NSW stewards found that Rawiller inconvenienced a number of other runners in the field when he shifted Life Of The Party out mid-race.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and was handed a five-meeting ban.

The suspension will come into effect this Monday and continue through until Thursday May 26 meaning he will be unavailable to ride in the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2020m) Saturday week.

Rawiller was set to take the mount on My Kingdom Of Fife having previously ridden the six-year-old to victory in both the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on April 23 and the $300,000 Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on May 7.

My Kingdom Of Fife, the horse formerly owned by Queen Elizabeth, has been making headlines around the country since scoring in their Australian debut as a $150 roughie in the Group 3 Doncaster Mile Prelude (1600m) at Randwick on Derby Day.

The Kingmambo gelding now sits as the $4.20 second favourite in the Doomben Cup odds behind fellow import, the Michael Moroney-trained Glass Harmonium at $4.

Glass Harmonium made their race debut in Australia last Saturday and caught the attention of the public and punters when finishing a close second behind My Kingdom Of Fife, beaten just a quarter of a length, in the Hollindale Stakes.
