Stout Hearted Out to Continue Run in 2012 Premier’s Cup

Chris Waller’s in-form import Stout Hearted will be out to continue a sparkling run of form in his first stakes test in Saturday’s Listed 2012 Premier’s Cup (1800m) at Rosehill.

Stout Hearted

Stout Hearted is chasing a third consecutive victory in the Premier's Cup

In six starts since arriving at Waller’s stable, the former British stayer is yet to finish worse than fourth and has hit a real purple patch of late.

On August 4 the son of Dynaformer was sensational over 1900 metres when winning a BM87 at Canterbury by nearly five lengths and that was backed up with a win in the Premier’s Cup Prelude (1800m).

The five-year-old has been nominated for both the Metropolitan and Caulfield Cup but first has to show he can cut it at stakes level and that starts this weekend.

Waller is confident Stout Hearted will improve as he steps up in distance but said he needs to race over the shorter trip first to hone his racing skills.

“He needs to be running in these shorter races to get his ring-craft right,” Waller said.

“I’m concerned about the distance for him. He’s going to need further to get to the next level and hopefully we don’t find that out on Saturday but I’m certainly mindful of it.”

Formerly trained by John Gosden, the five-year-old had seven starts in the UK from which he scored two wins and two place finishes.

Stout Hearted is one of three Waller-trained runners in the Premier’s Cup, with Permit and The Verminator both having their first run for the spring.

Permit, also an import, won the Group 2 Chairman’s Quality in April while The Verminator took out last year’s Metropolitan.
