Said Com Begins 2012 Epsom Preparation

Chris Waller-trained gelding Said Com will have his first hit-out since March this weekend as he begins his road to October’ Group 1 2012 Epsom Handicap (1600m).

Last seen running in the Rosehill Guineas, the son of O’Reilly is one of 111 nominations named for a benchmark 95 handicap at Canterbury on Saturday.

On the back of previous form, the Randwick Guineas runner-up should be far too good for his competition at Canterbury but Waller said he has not come back in perfect racing condition.

“I wouldn’t say he thrived during his spell and he’s still got to develop further,” Waller said.

“He’s still not a great eater…he’s typical of an immature horse.”

A winner of two of seven career starts, the four-year-old’s biggest result of his career came in the Group 1 Randdwick Guineas when he finished less than half a length behind autumn start Mosheen.

Waller said he was hoping to emulate the plan that he took with Rangrangdoo when he finished runner-up in the Epsom in 2009.

That preparation saw Rangirangdoo contest two non black-type events in the winter before competing in two group-level races in September.

Nominated to take on Said Com in Saturday’s $85,000 event at Canterbury are Peter Snowden’s Skytrain and Patinack gelding Tagus.

After 11 months out of the winners’ circle, Skytrain returned to form on July 21 when winning the Ingham Chicken And Turkey Handicap at Rosehill.

Multiple black-type winner Tagus showed he still has plenty of racing left him in earlier this year when placing in the Hall Mark Stakes at Randwick as well as the Lord Mayor’s Cup at Doomben.

Also nominated for Saturday’s race are Anthony Cummings-trained Bellissimo, Chris Waller-trained Key West and last-start winner Number One Gun.
