Rawiller Chasing back-to-back titles in 2013 Golden Slipper

He may be on the least spruiked of Gai Waterhouse’s three 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m) runners but top Sydney jockey Nash Rawiller hasn’t given up hope of scoring his second consecutive second win in the glamour race.

Rawiller partnered champion colt Pierro to victory last year and believes he is again on a horse that can “run a race.”

Whittington is a $20 chance in the Golden Slipper market , a long way from the $2.50 of stablemate Overreach, but his form has still been impressive.

Rawiller is tipping the colt to improve off his half-length Lonhro Plate victory which came on the back of a first-up second in the Listed Canonbury Stakes.

”He wasn’t quite ready first-up this time but he made good improvement from that run to the second-up run and has improved again since,” Rawiller told Fairfax.

”He has not done that much wrong.”

In Whittington’s other outing he won the Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate on debut in October.

Whittington forms part of a massive book of rides for Rawiller who has two near certainties with Pierro in the 2013 George Ryder Stakes and More Joyous in the 2013 Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

Pierro is a $1.60 chance to add a fifth Group 1 to his resume and claim a third straight victory after winning the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes and the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes to begin his campaign.

More Joyous is shooting for a third consecutive Queen Of The Turf win and was a strong second to Pierro in the Canterbury Stakes first-up.

Rawiller also rides former Magic Millions winner Driefontein in the 2013 Vinery Stud Stakes and Melbourne Cup fourth Kelinni in the BMW.
