Rangirangdoo Back in All Aged Stakes 2013

While Chris Waller prepares to saddle-up four chances in the Doncaster Mile this weekend he is saving the much awaited race return of stable veteran Rangirangdoo for Saturday week’s Sydney Cup Day meeting where the rising nine-year-old will run in the 2013 All Aged Stakes at Royal Randwick.

The dual Group 1 winning Pentire gelding hasn’t raced since their good second to Silent Achiever in the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) at Moonee Valley last October, Rangirangdoo given a tough first-up assignment in the $400,000 Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).

The former Doncaster Mile champ showed they were ready to get back to race conditions with a number of promising barrier trials this autumn the most recent of which was a win over 1030m at Rosehill on April 15.

There was a chance they would make their autumn return in Brisbane this Saturday in Eagle Farm’s $80,000 Listed Hinkler Handicap (1200m) however Waller is opting for the harder option of the All Aged.

They are still Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival-bound however with Waller confirming Rangirangdoo would target the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2020m) on May 18 in what is their swansong race campaign.

“The timing is hard leading to the Doomben Cup,” Waller said on Tuesday.

“He has had three barrier trials and won one yesterday and we have decided to go the All Aged with a weight-for-age mile at Doomben on May the 12th before the Doomben Cup.”

The likely headliner in the All Aged Stakes this year that Rangirangdoo will face off against is then Black Caviar’s half-brother All Too Hard, the Hawkes-trained colt to return to racing after an elevated temperature ruled them out of the Australian Guineas last month.

Three-year-old All Too Hard previously scored the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes – Futurity Stakes double in Melbourne this time in bringing their tally to three elite level trophies with a trip to Royal Ascot mid-year hanging on their All Aged Stakes performance.

Also in the All Aged mix will be last year’s Doncaster Mile winning mare More Joyous, Gai Waterhouse’s pin-up girl last seen finishing a luckless fifth as the beaten favourite in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1500m) when boxed in early and unable to get a clear run.

Waller’s quartet of chances in this Saturday’s $2 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) meanwhile are dual Chipping Norton Stakes champ Shoot Out, evergreen nine-year-old Danleigh, ultra-consistent mare Red Tracer coming off two Group 1 seconds behind Appearance, and Kiwi expat Sacred Falls last seen finishing second to It’s A Dundeel in the Rosehill Guineas.
