Somepin Anypin Set for Chelmsford Stakes 2012

Gary Portelli’s 2012 Cox Plate hopeful Somepin Anypin will continue their ambitious spring preparation this Saturday in Warwick Farm’s Chelmsford Stakes 2012 stepping up 400-metres from their resuming run last month.

Originally Portelil had the local galloper dually nominated for Saturday’s meeting with the Warwick Farm horseman also considering the $125,000 Group 3 Tramway Handicap (1400m) for the five-year-old Pins gelding.

However with Somepin Anypin allocated 55.5kg in the Tramway, and with weights set to rise following the likely non-acceptance of the Chris Waller-trained topweights Shoot Out (62kg) and Rangirangdoo (61.5kg), Portelli has decided on the $175,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) instead.

It won’t be an easy second-up assignment for Somepin Anypin however with the horse to take on a quality field of fellow spring hopefuls that could include Peter Moody’s dual Brisbane winter cups winner Lights Of Heaven and reigning Epsom Handicap champ Secret Admirer.

Portelli however gained some confidence from Somepin Anypin’s eye-catching first-up run when finishing one and a half lengths away third to boom galloper Moment Of Change in the Listed Show County Quality (1200m) at the track on August 25.

It is a notable rise in distance from their first-up run to the mile on Saturday, and it will be only the second time Somepin Anypin has raced over the 1600m.

They handled their debut mile performance with ease however when winning the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) by a tidy four lengths back in November last year and Portelli is convinced that they are looking for the distance now.

“He’s definitely running in theChelmsford,” Portelli said.

“The way he raced first-up, he looked pretty dour. His second-up form in the past has been a little disappointing but I think that could be that we’ve always thought he was a sprinter.

“He showed (winning the Hawkesbury Cup last year) that he could run a mile so maybe we’ve had him in the wrong races second-up.

“There’ll be more pressure early in the 1400 than in the mile race and he’ll be able to lead theChelmsford.”

This spring Portelli has some big plans for Somepin Anypin who is nominated for both the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick on October 6 during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, and the famous $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Melbourne’s Moonee Valley Racecourse on October 27.

The latest Epsom Handicap odds at are led by More Joyous ($7) who is more likely to head straight to the Cox Plate 2012, followed by the defending champ Secret Admirer.

A little further down the markets punters can find Somepin Anypin at a quote of $21.

For the Cox Plate meanwhile More Joyous is the $7 second elect by her undefeated young stablemate Pierro ($5) with Somepin Anypin a $71 roughie.
