Rangirangdoo will have his second start of the spring this Saturday when he contests the Group 1 2012 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick.


Rangirangdoo continues his spring campaign in Saturday's George Main Stakes

The Chris Waller-trained eight-year-old kicked off his campaign on September 8 and showed he still has plenty left to give when fourth in the Group Tramway Handicap (1400m).

The dual Group 1 winner has not won since the 2011 George Ryder Stakes but came close in the autumn when second to Manighar in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes.

On the side of the son of Pentire will be Nash Rawiller who will be riding him for the first time since his victory in the 2010 Doncaster Mile.

Waller is happy with the appointment of the star Sydney jockey who has ridden him on just that one occasion.

“Nash is back on Rangi for the first time since the Doncaster and we’re pleased to have him,” Waller said.

Waller has four horses entered for the Group 1 feature with the others being multiple Group 1 winner Shoot Out, Chelmsford Stakes winner Danleigh and recent import Class Is Class.

Shoot Out is having his first start of the spring after a successful autumn where he won the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes and placed on two other occasions at Group 1 level.

The leading Sydney trainer has fine tuned the six-year-old’s fitness with three barrier trials, the most recent of which he won by four lengths.

“He is as fit as we can get him for 1600 metres first-up with racing him,” Waller said.

Nine-year-old Danleigh showed he is not ready to give up the game just yet when beating Secret Admirer by a length in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm on September 8.
