Said Com Fires Warning Ahead of 2012 Epsom

Said Com fired an early warning to rivals ahead of October’s Group 1 2012 Epsom Handicap (1600m) when he stormed home to win the BMW Financial Services Handicap (1250m) at Canterbury on Saturday.

The Group 1 placegetter signalled his potential for a big spring when producing an impressive finish to chase down Welkom Gold from a long way back in the straight.

Showing there is plenty of room for improvement ahead of his Group 1 target later in the year, the Chris Waller-trained gelding missed the start but showed that ability counts at the back end of the race as he eventually went on to win by more than a length.

After his position early in the race, the win even surprised Waller who admits there is a long way to go before the son of O’Reilly reaches his peak this spring.

“I thought the leader had the race shot to pieces with 200m to go but to the horses credit he has dug pretty deep,” Waller said.

“He’s obviously got that extra gear and he has used it today.

“It was a tough race first up but there is no rush on him. He still has a long way to go wherever we end up.

A winner of three of eight starts and more than $240,000 in prize money, Said Com came within half a length of upsetting autumn start Mosheen in the Randwick Guineas in March.

Star Sydney jockey Nash Rawiller was on board for Saturday’s victory and he is predicting a big spring for the four-year-old.

“Those Group placings he’s run are just unbelievable form lines,” Rawiller said.

“He’s run second to Laser Hawk before and I’ve got an unbelievable opinion of him.

“I think he is a very high class horse and it is good to see him back here and kicking off his campaign so well.”

Waller said he would take some time determining where to place Said Com in his next spring start.
