Robl’s Meticulous Inglis Classic 2013 Mount

Jockey Peter Robl is hoping Canberra trainer Matthew Dale’s assessment of young Meticulously as a genuine city type is spot on when he partners with the last start Wagga winner in Saturday’s 2013 Inglis Classic at Rosehill Gardens.

Not A Single Doubt two-year-old Meticulously, a $30,000 buy from last year’s Inglis Sydney Classic Yearling Sales, debuted out in the country on January 8 and scored a promising three length win in a 2YO’s maiden over 1000m.

While the bush win might not have the punters all that excited with Meticulously going second-up into the restricted $250,000 Inglis Classic (1200m) on the weekend, Dale has the horse tipped for bigger things and Robl is willing to take the trainer on his word.

“The horse looked the part at Wagga,” Robl said. “It was a very nice win.

“The Inglis Classic looks a hard race but Matty reckons the horse is up to it so we’ll find out.

“He is a very good judge and it’s not going to surprise me if the horse measures up.”

For their Wagga win Meticulously was ridden by Brendan Ward but Robl has been booked for their metro debut on Saturday which will go a long way in determining the juvenile’s summer – autumn preparation.

Comparisons are already being made between Meticulously and another Inglis Classic Sales graduate under Dale’s care, Not A Single Doubt gelding Unanimously.

The now five-year-old was purchased for $45,000 from the 2009 sales and has won $396,850 in prize money to date with six wins from 23 starts including their Listed BMW Classic (1100m) victory at Canterbury last January.

Robl will be looking for atonement in this year’s Inglis Classic having done all the work on the Anthony Cummings-trained Diamond Earth in the feature 12 months ago before they were run down in the final strides to finish second to Glyn Schofield’s mount Cavalry Rose.

The 2013 Inglis Classic is shaping up as an intriguing showdown with other noteworthy entries including the Bjorn Baker-trained duo of Awarewolf and Fuerza, the nicely-bred Marseille Roulette to debut for Gai Waterhouse and Group 3 winner Direct Charge.

Schofield meanwhile will be shooting for back-to-back Inglis Classic wins having been booked to ride Robbie Laing’s popular Charge Forward colt Direct Charge who is out to improve on their first-up failure at Warwick Farm from January 5 when ridden by Steve Arnold.
