Waller to Show Patience With Pressday

Premiership winning trainer Chris Waller will play a wait and see game with his Group One winning colt Pressday ahead of Saturday’s Missile Stakes at Randwick.

Waller said whether or not Pressday returns to the races this weekend would be dependent on how he fared in his trackwork.

“Pressday’s fitness is almost back where I need to be and if he workls well he will definitely race on Saturday. If he has a good blow after the gallop then we might wait for the following week.” Waller said.

Pressday looked like a horse that was going places when he won the Group One TJ Smith at Eagle Farm last year. He was also able to claim the Sandown Guineas as a three year old, but nothing much has gone right for the horse since.

Waller prepared the talented colt for some of the feature three year old races in the summer, however the horse never fully fired.

He finished down the track in the Royal Sovereign Stakes, the Hobartville and the Warwick Farm Guineas. While he was taking quality fields in these races, he was never really a show and Waller ended up scratching him from the 2000m Rosehill Guineas.

Waller will also be hoping that the colt is over the barrier stall problems that dogged him during his last campaign. Pressday missed the kick badly in two of his summer carnival starts, costing him any real chance.

“We only gave Pressday three starts in the autumn because I just wasn’t happy where he was mentally,” Waller said.

“He’s a much better horse than what he is showing. We were just going nowhere, so we backed off and pulled the stumps up early. He seems to have comeback really well, although he is a hard horse to get a line on.”

Triple Elegance will also start in the Missile Stakes, and Waller will be hoping his talented gelding can win at Randwick for the first time in six starts.

“Triple Elegance usually races well fresh and he made massive progress last autumn. I wouldn’t be game to say that he has improved, but he certainly hasn’t gone backwards.” Waller said.
