All Too Hard Among 2012 Chelmsford Stakes Nominations

Last Saturday’s The Run To The Rose failure All Too Hard has been nominated to race again this weekend in Sydney with the Nathan Tinkler-owned colt entered for the Chelmsford Stakes 2012 at Warwick Farm.

All Too Hard

All Too Hard has been nominated for the 2012 Chelmsford Stakes at Warwick Farm this Saturday

All Too Hard lost his spot at the top of the Golden Rose odds after finishing a below par fifth to Pierro on the weekend, but they could be given the chance to atone in this Saturday’s $175,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) after jockey Dwayne Dunn said they were “racing like a miler”.

There were 11 early entries for the 2012 Chelmsford Stakes, a nice lead-up race for gallopers heading towards some of the richer Sydney Spring Racing Carnival features like the $350,000 Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick on September 22 and either the $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) or the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) back at Randwick on October 6.

Among the Chelmsford Stakes nominations this year is reigning Epsom Handicap winner Secret Admirer who hasn’t won a race since her Epsom win last spring.

The consistent Grahame Begg-trained Dubawi mare made her five-year-old debut at Warwick Farm on August 25 running a good second to Pinwheel in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m), an effort she can improve on stepping up in distance.

Ace Sydney trainer Chris Waller meanwhile is dually represented in the Chelmsford Stakes nominations with his veteran gallopers Danleigh, coming off a third in the Warwick Stakes, and Rangirangdoo.

Saturday will be dual Group 1 winner Rangirangdoo’s first official run as an eight-year-old, the popular Pentire gelding last seen running fourth to More Joyous in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on April 28.

They will run in either the Chelmsford or the $125,000 Group 3 Tramway Handicap (1400m) at the meeting, Waller having nominated them for both Warwick Farm races.

“I’ll look at the races and what weight he gets in the Tramway,” Waller said.

In preparation for their new season debut Waller has been giving Rangirangdoo some beach work which has really bought him on.

“He is going well and he has been going to the beach,” Waller said this week.

“He works in the morning and then gets on a truck and goes to Botany and really enjoys it.

“I’m probably a bit softer on these older horses too.”

Coming off a good first-up performance is the Gary Portelli-trained Somepin Anypin, the Pins gelding having resumed after a five month break to run third to Moment Of Change in the Listed Show County Quality (1200m) at Warwick Farm a fortnight ago.

A number of Melbourne Spring Cup hopefuls are also nominated for the Chelmsford with the Peter Moody-trained Lights Of Heaven – the Eagle Farm Cup / Brisbane Cup double winner having run 11th in the Warwick Stakes first-up, and Graeme Boyd’s resuming Kiwi galloper Ginga Dude last seen winning the Group 3 Tatt’s Cup (2200m) in Brisbane back on June 23.

Meanwhile jockey Peter Robl has picked up the Chelmsford Stakes ride on the David Vandkye-trained Lamasery, the horse third in The Metropolitan last year.

“Lamasery is a great ride to get at this time of the year,” Robl said.

Nominations for the Chelmsford Stakes have been extended until 11:00am on Tuesday morning.
