Rangi Wide but Still Live Epsom 2012 Chance

Chris Waller’s evergreen eight-year-old Rangirangdoo may have drawn wide for this Saturday’s 2012 Epsom Handicap at Randwick Racecourse but jockey Nash Rawiller isn’t worried about the gate and still rates Rangi a genuine chance in the mile classic.


Rangirangdoo is after their third Group 1 win in the Epsom Handicap 2012 this Saturday

The veteran Pentire gelding will be racing in his second Epsom this weekend, the dual Group 1 winner having been defeated by the narrowest of margins when second to Rock Kingdom in the 2009 edition.

Racing third-up for the season in the $500,000 Group 1 The Star Epsom (1600m) this time Rangirangdoo has barrier 14 of 15 to overcome if they are to score an upset and record their third thoroughbred major.

Showing they still had plenty of spark for racing last start Rangirangdoo came within a quarter length of their stablemate Shoot Out to finish runner-up in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on September 22.

For that run they were ridden by Rawiller, the jockey confident again this weekend with his mount.

“It might be a perfect barrier the way Randwick has been racing,” Rawiller said.

“I’m not too concerned, my horse is a good beginner and there is a long run down the back, Wild And Proud (barrier 15) will probably go forward and give him cover, from there we will just work out where we need to be.”

George Main Stakes winner Shoot Out also backs up in the Epsom this Saturday paying $5.50 in the latest bookmaker.com.au markets trailing only the Gai Waterhouse-trained Fat Al ($4.80), Waterhouse out to equal her father Tommy Smith’s record of seven Epsom Handicap wins.

Rangirangdoo is another one of the top fancies rated a $7.50 chance.

To get behind Rangirangdoo or any one of their talented rivals in the 2012 Epsom Handicap this weekend, head along to bookmaker.com.au who are offering the biggest and best range of fixed win racing odds all spring.
