Caulfield Cup a Learning Curve for Who Shot Thebarman

Returning to strong form in the lead-up to this weekend’s feature race, jockey Glen Boss is confident classy kiwi import Who Shot Thebarman is a fighting chance in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) but conceded he is unsure where he fits into calculations.

Securing eight wins and two minors from his 14 competitive starts to date, Who Shot Thebarman began his racing career under the guidance of Mark Oulaghan before transferring to the care of Chris Waller at the beginning of the season.

Charged with carrying just 55kgs, Boss said the Melbourne Cup is shaping as a more realistic target for Who Shot Thebarman, with the Caulfield Cup figuring as a great form indicator in the lead-up.

“To be honest I don’t really know where he sits at the moment,” Boss told TVN.

“He’s a very strong stayer and if they go really hard he will keep coming, and he’s pretty quick when he has to be as well.

“Probably the Bart Cummings form isn’t good enough normally for a Caulfield Cup, but he’s very tough this horse so we’ll know a lot more about him after tomorrow.”

A standout performer in major New Zealand stayer events over the 2013 spring and summer, Who Shot Thebarman finished second in the Group 3 Manawatu Cup (2300m) before claiming impressive victories back-to-back in the Group 2 Avondale Gold Cup (2400m) and Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m); the latter his maiden at the highest level of racing.

While unable to figure when ninth in the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) on April 19th, the Yamanin Vital gelding beat just one runner home in a minor over 1400m first-up this time, but quickly found his feet in finishing seventh in the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) and winning both the Sofitel Girls’ Day Out Handicap (2000m) and Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m) most recently.
