Beaten Up To Remain In Sydney For 2013 Chelmsford Stakes

Dual-acceptor Beaten Up will remain in Sydney to contest the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick and will not be joining stablemate Foreteller in the field for the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington in Melbourne.

Beaten Up began his 2013 Spring Racing Carnival campaign with an impressive performance in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m), battling home well in the final stages of the race to finish fourth behind Veyron, Streama and Rain Affair.

Trainer Chris Waller currently holds Caulfield Cup ambitions with the Beat Hollow gelding but believes he is ready to step-up and be competitive over a mile in the Chelmsford Stakes this weekend.

“Beaten Up and Foreteller were the two ready for the mile,” Waller told TVN.

“There’s no hiding now at this time of the year and it’s time for Beaten Up to take the next step now.”

Waller has been unsure which races he should contest with Beaten Up and the Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) as well as the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley next Saturday were both possible options.

Metal Bender generally competed over 2400 metres when he was based in Europe and he was competitive at Group 1 level, finishing behind equine superstars Cirrus Des Aigles and St Nicholas Abbey in the 2012 Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic (2410m) at Meydan and the 2012 Group 1 Coronation Cup (2423m) at Epsom Downs.

The five-year-old is considered one of the leading chances in the 2013 Chelmsford Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.

Warwick Stakes winner Veyron is current the favourite in the 2013 Chelmsford Stakes betting market and odds of $4.20 and he is followed by imported galloper Bayrir ($4.60), while Beaten Up ($5) is on the third line of betting with stablemate Hawkspur.
