Somepin Anypin Out to Prove Spring Credentials – 2012 George Main Stakes

Somepin Anypin will be out to prove he can be competitive at the top level when he contests the Group 1 2012 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

The five-year-old gelding has been solid without being outstanding so far this spring with a third-place finish in the Show County Quality followed by a fourth in the Chelmsford Stakes.

Saturday’s test will be the son of Pins’ first top tier outing and while trainer Gary Portelli isn’t expecting him to win, he is hoping he can show that he will be competitive in Group 1 events later in the spring.

“I think he’s going to be better suited under handicap conditions,” Portelli said.

“Realistically, 59kg against some of the best milers in Australia this weekend, he’s got the task ahead.”

Portelli has outlined the Epsom Handicap on October 6 as the major target for which he will get in with just 52kg.

On Saturday it is likely Somepin Anypin will set the pace up front and will again be ridden by Jay Ford.

Currently rated a $10.00 chance to claim Saturday’s Sydney feature, Somepin Anypin, along with All Too Hard, is one of two horses in the field yet to taste Group 1 success.

In what is set to be an exciting encounter, the field is headed by 2011 Epsom winner Secret Admirer and multiple Group 1 winner Shoot Out.

Shoot Out is having his first start of the spring after an autumn in which he proved himself as one of the best middle-distance horses in the country.

The Chris Waller-trained gelding did not miss a place during six-start autumn campaign that was highlighted by a win in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes and a runner-up finish to More Joyous in the Doncaster Mile.

Shoot Out is one of three Waller-trained horses in the George Main Stakes and is joined by Danleigh and Rangirangdoo.
