Reliable Man Could Feature in 2013 Cox Plate

Potential star import Reliable Man’s injury is not as bad as first thought and trainer Chris Waller is hopeful he may play a part at the 2013 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

In just his second Australian start the five-year-old belted star colt It’s A Dundeel by 2 1/2 lengths to win the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes which quickly had experts spruiking his Cox Plate claims.

But just as quickly as the excitement arose, it dampened. Reliable Man was found to be seriously lame after passing the finishing post.

Initial fears were that he had suffered a tendon injury that would end his career but it is believed that is no longer the case.

“The problem is in the bottom part of the tendon but I’m told it could be a form of tendonitis,” trainer Chris Waller told AAP.

“I certainly hope it is not as serious as we feared because he I think he is a serious Cox Plate horse.”

The former French galloper showed a serious turn of foot in the Queen Elizabeth and is potentially the best horse in the leading Sydney trainer’s stable.

Reliable Man was a Group 1 winner over 2100m France and was also fourth to So You Think in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at last year’s Royal Ascot carnival.

While Reliable Man won’t race in the immediate future, Waller’s success is seemingly unstoppable.

The top Sydney trainer has 137.5 metropolitan winners this season and is nearing in on the record set by Tommy Smith and Gai Waterhouse of 156 winners.
