2015 Doomben 10,000 Aim for Boban

After a gun trial this week from Boban ace Sydney trainer Chris Waller has confirmed plans to bypass The Championships at home this autumn and instead aim the galloper at Brisbane’s Doomben 10,000 2015 in the winter.

Bernardini five-year-old Boban trialled at Rosehill on Tuesday morning and jockey Glyn Schofield rode him to a smart win over 900m in 53.4 seconds.

Pleased with the gelding’s efforts there in his second official trial this month, Waller will run the multiple Group 1 champion in the same opening three Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival races as last year.

“He trialled well, but he didn’t beat much,” Waller told The Daily Telegraph.

“I said to Glyn to make sure he jumps him out this morning, and I didn’t want him falling out of the gates again. He trialled like a Group 1 winner should.”

Boban will resume in the $200,000 Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m), which he ran fifth in last year, at Rosehill Gardens on January 31.

Then he will head to Royal Randwick a fortnight later looking to improve on his fourth to Appearance, who also won the Expressway in 2014, in the $250,000 Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m).

Waller will then give the horse a chance to add a fourth Group 1 title to his record with a title defense in the $500,000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm on February 28.

After his Chipping Norton Stakes win last autumn, which gave him three elite levels after his interstate Epsom Handicap – Emirates Stakes double in the spring of 2013, Boban went on to run in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) last year.

He was midfield when seventh in the George Ryder then 11th when beating home just one rival in the Queen Elizabeth, worth $4 million in prize money again this year, suffering a bleeding attack that forced him to spend three months off the track.

This year Waller has ruled out any other Sydney features after the 2015 Chipping Norton Stakes, ruling Boban out of the $3 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 4 that he pays $15 in the pre-nomination betting markets to win through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Instead the galloper will be sent out for a freshen-up before heading north for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Boban had two runs in Queensland during the winter of 2013 when second in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) and ninth behind Sizzling in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) – blocked for a run in both.

His major aim this winter however will be the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on May 24.

“I want to give him short preparations, his first few runs are always good, and the mile is his best distance, but he’s not the type of horse you can take fresh into a mile,” Waller said.

“He needs 1200m, 1400m and then the mile. He’ll race in the Expressway Stakes, Apollo and Chipping Norton, then I’ll freshen him up and send him to Brisbane for the Doomben 10,000.
