Foreteller Scores Upset 2013 Ranvet Stakes Win – Rosehill Results

Chris Waller-trained import Foreteller bounced back from an Australian Cup seventh to upset a quality field and claim his first Group 1 win in the 2013 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill today.

The six-year-old was rated a $31 chance at race jump but attacked the line impressively to run down highly-rated three-year-old Fiveandahalfstar in the final 50m.

At the home turn it looked as if Fiveandahalfstar had pinched the race as he held a three-length lead with nothing seriously in pursuit.

But Forteller, who benefited from a quiet ride from Jim Cassidy, began to wind up and when Fiveandahalfstar tired in the dying stages he pounced to score easily the biggest victory of his career.

It was the fifth start of the campaign for the Dansili gelding but Waller hasn’t ruled out pushing on to the Group 1 $2.25 million 2013 BMW (2400m) in two weeks time.

“Today he was able to be ridden suitably…great ride Jim Cassidy,” Waller said.

“Who knows? Two weeks time, it’s his home track. A $2.25 million BMW, they don’t come round every second day.”

It was Cassidy’s first Group 1 win for Waller who he endorsed to get Foreteller up for the rigours of 2400m in the BMW.

“I travelled in nice, peeled off behind Kelinni and Gatewood coming around the corner. I was three lengths behind but he came into it nice,” Cassidy said.

“If anyone can get this horse to run a mile and a half (2400m) it’s Chris.

“Chris has been marvellous to me the last two or three years…I really appreciate the support and it’s a great thrill for me.”

Former Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday showed he is on the march to bigger things, running home strongly for third.
