Distance No Concern for Proisir in 2012 Spring Champion Stakes

Unbeaten colt Proisir may be stepping up in distance this weekend in the 2012 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) but that doesn’t concern jockey Nash Rawiller.

The three-year-old son of Choisir has been dominant in his three career starts to date, with the most recent being a six-length win in the Spring Stakes (1600m) at Newcastle last month.

Rawiller has been aboard for all three starts and is backing him to handle to step up in distance this week.

“Most of the horses in the race are in the same predicament [stepping up to 2000m],” Rawiller told Racing and Sports.

“He’s a horse that makes his own luck and the way he hit the line the other day you’d think he’d get a mile and a quarter (2000m).”

Rawiller thinks the Cox Plate-nominated colt will be tough to beat on Saturday, taking plenty of confidence from the win at Newcastle.

“He probably got a fairly easy time in front which but the turn of foot was electric,” Rawiller said.

Trainer Gai Waterhouse said after the Newcastle victory that Proisir could head to Melbourne following the Spring Champion but suggested he wouldn’t take on Pierro in next month’s Caulfield Guineas.

He is currently a $1.50 favourite to keep his winning streak alive on Saturday, with unbeaten New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel the next best at $4.20.

It’s A Dundeel will be having his second start at Randwick after scoring an impressive last-to-first win in the Gloaming Stakes last month.

Also contesting the Spring Champion Stakes are Gloaming Stakes placegetters Honorius and Lunar Rise.
