Can Waller Shoot Out and Score in Chipping Norton Stakes 2013?

They are leading the current betting markets and are the defending champ but can Chris Waller’s Shoot Out go back-to-back in Saturday’s 2013 Chipping Norton Stakes and hand their trainer with his third straight win in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival classic?

The High Chaparral gelding won the $350,000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm third-up last season in fine style putting an easy two lengths on their stablemate, the then reigning winner Danleigh.

This year Shoot Out is back for another shot at the title when they resume racing on the weekend having last run a good fifth to weight-for-age star Ocean Park in the Cox Plate in October.

Boasting a nice first-up record that includes the Group 1 George Main Stakes win over the mile at Randwick last time in, Shoot Out is certainly well positioned in gate two with Hugh Bowman back in the saddle.

As such they are dominating the latest Chipping Norton Stakes betting odds at a quote of $5.

But with Peter Moody’s ace import Manighar back in action and hot on their heels at $5.50 and five other Waller hopefuls in the mix can Shoot Out get the job done for the punters?

Why Shoot Out Can Become a Dual Chipping Norton Stakes Winner

  • Has come up trumps with barrier two and with the firming track at the Farm this shouldn’t be too choppy
  • Ace hoop and regular rider Hugh Bowman is back in the saddle having won this race with them 12 months ago
  • Their win in the Chipping Norton last year was a beauty and they haven’t put a foot wrong since
  • Waller is tipping them as the one to beat and he saddles up nearly half the field this year
  • Boasts an incredible four Group 1 victories including the George Main Stakes last September over this distance at Randwick
  • That was one of three mile wins for them from seven attempts and they also have run a second and a third over the 1600m
  • One of the highest earners here having amassed a tidy $2.96 million in prize money to date
  • Their $5 price in the markets is historically advantageous as only one double figure outsider has won the race since 1983

Why Shoot Out Won’t Win the 2013 Chipping Norton Stakes

  • If the rain comes they could be in trouble with their inside alley
  • A few unknowns in this field that could come out of the woodwork including market mover #12 Havana Rey ($15) who is a four time winner at the track and distance
  • Is one of the least consistent horses here based on winning percentages with a rate of 28.13%
