Rangirangdoo Heads 2012 Tramway Handicap Field & Weights

Chris Waller’s injury-prone veteran Rangirangdoo is a surprise acceptor for the Tramway Handicap 2012 at Warwick Farm Racecourse this Saturday, the dual Group 1 winner to make their eight-year-old debut in the race as the top-weight.


Rangirangdoo will carry the 61.5kg topweight in the 2012 Tramway Handicap field on Saturday

Originally Waller was looking to put the race return of his Pentire gelding Rangirangdoo, for whom he holds an obvious soft spot for, on hold after they were allocated a hefty 61.5kg for the $125,000 Group 3 Tattersalls Club Tramway Handicap (1400m).

While Waller did not accept for Shoot Out who had 62kg, the ace Sydney horseman is pressing ahead with Rangirangdoo first-up – the champ last seen running a brave fourth to More Joyous in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on April 28.

Like last-start Doncaster Mile runner-up Shoot Out, whose new return is yet to be decided, Rangirangdoo is heading towards bigger things this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival including the $350,000 Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on September 22.

Waller will also be represented in the race by two other stablemates with Class Is Class on 57.5kg in barrier 11 with Kerrin McEvoy aboard, and the in-form Said Com in gate four with Blake Shinn engaged.

Imported Montjeu gelding Class Is Class, formerly trained in the UK by Sir Michael Stout, makes their debut down under for Waller on Saturday – the gelding nominated for all the spring majors including the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate.

O’Reilly four-year-old Said Com, runner-up in the Randwick Guineas last season, races third-up for the season coming off a good first-up win at Canterbury before their third to Kontiki Park over 1400m at Rosehill on August 18.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Kontiki Park is also among the Tramway acceptors for this weekend, allocated 56kg with Nash Rawiller to ride them from gate six.

Winner of the Magic Millions Stayers’ Cup on the Gold Coast at the start of the year, the now seven-year-old son of ThornParkvies for their second win on the trot this time in as they head towards the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick on October 6.

Following Rangirangdoo in the 2012 Tramway Handicap weights meanwhile is then the Ron Quinton-trained Monton (58kg), coming off a first-up sixth to Moment Of Change in the Listed Show County Quality, who has drawn ideally in barrier three with Hugh Bowman to ride.

The only other runners not previously mentioned above the 54kg minimum are then the John O’Shea-trained Group 2 winning Danehill Dancer mare Steps In Time (55.5kg) and Waterhouse’s other hopeful Wild And Proud who races for the first time since their close third in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill back in March.

Other notable chances include John Sargent’s Queensland Oaks winner Quintessential now based at Warwick Farm having transferred to their trainer’s new Sydney operation from New Zealand, and Peter Moody’s Show County winner Moment Of Change.
