Waller Quartet Set for Doncaster Mile 2012

Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller has confirmed he will have four horses chasing top honours in the prestigious 2012 Doncaster Mile at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse next weekend.

Shoot Out

Shoot Out heads a group of four Chris Waller-trained horses headed for the Doncaster Mile

Headlining Waller’s quartet is Chipping Norton Stakes winner Shoot Out who had his first hit out in a barrier trial this morning since finishing third in the Ranvet Stakes to star French gelding Manighar.

The in-form gelding currently sits third in the Doncaster Mile betting market ($8.00) behind glamour mare More Joyous and Coolmore Classic runner-up Secret Admirer.

Shoot Out has been in excellent form in 2012, placing twice at Group 2 level as well as winning the Group 1 Chipping Norton before the third-place Ranvet effort.

Former Doncaster winner Rangirangdoo will bypass the race in favour of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes but last weekend’s surprise George Ryder Stakes winner Metal Bender is set to compete.

The six-year-old New Zealand gelding beat a host of more highly favoured horses to score his third Group 1 win and Waller said he pulled up well following the race.

“There’s been no coughing and there’s no heat in his tendons,” he said.

Following Saturday’s victory, Metal Bender has moved into $15.00 in the bookmaker.com.au Doncaster market and is the next best Waller-trained chance ahead of Danleigh ($34.00) and Albert The Fat ($61.00).

Four-time Group 1 winner Danleigh also ran in the George Ryder Stakes but failed to come into winning contention, eventually finishing with a disappointing 14th.

It came on the back of a promising build up for the eight-year-old who finished third in the Apollo Stakes and was runner-up to Shoot Out in the Chipping Norton.

Last year’s Emirates Stakes winner Albert The Fat has been disappointing this campaign, finishing a best of eighth from three trips to the track.

The Doncaster is set to run on April 21 and is worth a lucrative $1.5 million.

The preliminary Doncaster Mile betting market is now open at the Races.com.au preferred bookie – bookmaker.com.au.
