Boban Heads Chipping Norton Stakes 2014 Nominations

Sydney’s top trainer Chris Waller dominates the 2014 Chipping Norton Stakes nominations for the feature Group 1 at Warwick Farm this weekend, his trio of entries led by Emirates Stakes winner Boban.

A total of only 12 gallopers make up this year’s nominations for the $500,000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), three of which come from the Waller stables.

One of the likely favourites is Boban, the Bernardini gelding to run third-up for the season.

After a sensational spring that saw him undefeated with five victories including the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) in Melbourne, the progressive runner returned with a fifth to Appearance in the Group 1 Expressway Stakes (1200m) on February 8.

They returned to Randwick a fortnight later and were last seen running fourth to the same horse this time in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m).

Improvement is expected third-up this weekend though as they get back up to the mile.

Boban will also reunite with their champion spring hoop Glyn Schofield on Saturday who missed their opening two rides this time in due to suspension.

Schofield is looking forward to picking back up where he left off with the top galloper, but by no means blames fellow jockey Nash Rawiller for the horse’s two failed runs this campaign.

”To be fair to Nash, he is not a straightforward horse to ride. He just wants to get running all the time and we spent most of the spring trying to get him to settle,” Schofield told the Sydney Morning Herald.

”Like most horses he wants to go flat out, but he wants to do it all the time.

”For him the first couple of hundred metres of any race are very important because he wants to get overracing and if he does, that’s it.”

Waller has also nominated for Queensland Derby champ Hawkspur coming via a CF Orr Stakes sixth and the in-form Moriarty.

Third in the Mackinnon at elite level during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Clodovil six-year-old Moriarty will be three runs into their autumn campaign, their last effort a pleasing Apollo Stakes third.

Waller shoots for his third Chipping Norton on the trot following back-to-back wins by Shoot Out (2012, 2013).

There are also three last start winners among the Chipping Norton early entries this year with recent Randwick champ Monton, Order Of The Sun second-up after also taking out a Randwick feature and the Trent Busuttin-trained Kiwi raider El Roca.

Lightly raced Fastnet Rock colt El Roca is three from five to date following their eye catching two length win upon resuming at Rosehill in the Listed Eskino Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 15.

Earmarked for big things this autumn they are nominated for all the majors including the Australian Derby and are a top chance on Saturday if accepted.

The other big name entry is then of course It’s A Dundeel, another New Zealand visitor looking to steal the show.

Murray Baker’s star High Chaparral stallion is already a five time Group 1 winner down under, most recently defeating Atlantic Jewel in the Underwood during the spring.

They race for the first time here after their disappointing Cox Plate eighth however so all eyes will be on them for their return.

Despite their Cox Plate failure It’s A Dundeel still looks one of the Chipping Norton hopes to beat following their impressive two length barrier trial win at Randwick back on February 24.
